Creative DIY Team October Project: Tablescapes

This month our creative team project is tablescapes. We all live in various sized homes. So our tablescapes reflect who we are, what our style happens to be, and where we happen to live.

Please visit the rest of the team:

Mine is just a simple tablescape, nothing lavish. This is how I live, plain and simple. This is small apartment living.

I have one table where I dine. It is small and has two chairs. 

The chairs were from Pier 1 and I've had them since I lived in Texas. They are indoor/outdoor chairs. 

I find that indoor/outdoor chairs are less expensive. Plus you get more bang for your buck, as you can use them both indoors and outdoors.

Floral dishes from Marshalls. White dishes from Pier 1. Silverware from Pier 1.

In fact everything you see except for these old bottles I have had since my days in Texas. I found these old bottles at various places for a buck or two.

Who doesn't want a little candle action at the table? And I really mean little! Mine is a miniature cup and saucer with a small votive candle inside.

A blue and white tablecloth with leaf motifs seemed perfect for this time of year. I've always liked red, white and blue together.

Just across from my little table is of course this wall with my coffee bar, small pantry and cupboard where I keep dishes, etc.

Don't forget to go over and check out the rest of the team's projects.

See ya next month when we will have another theme to share with you!

I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time.

Please be kind with your comments. We all need kindness in this world. That's not to say you can't state your opinion! Everyone should be able to state their own opinion in a kind and thoughtful manner.

I appreciate each and every one of you!
