Something borrowed...a fall tablescape

     Many of you know we moved over the summer, and with that move we gained close access to my parents. They live just across a main street only half a mile away. With that said, it's rather easy for me to go over there and ask to borrow something..sugar...wine glasses...Mimmie's silver. My mom is very giving and knows that after the pictures are taken, the borrowed items will return...unless she says I can keep them:)
 These pretty amber jeweled wine stems are hers. I actually told her to buy them years ago...clearance at Target...
 I 'borrowed' my saucers to break up the reds between the berry bowl and salad plate and I 'borrowed' these beaded poinsettia napkin rings from my Christmas stash. I thought the gold complimented the wine stems beautifully. And Kathleen, I think you'd be proud I paid 29 cents each (90 % off of $2.99 after Christmas clearance at Target years ago!) 
 The mosaics and red hurricanes are from my Christmas stash...Pier One and World Market years ago
The silver salt and pepper grinder belonged to my great grandmother.    

    I bought this beautiful doily from Susan at My Place to Yours 
She has beautiful things in her etsy shop!

   the rest...
linen place mats--from a friend (Romania)
Silver--my grandmothers
Red glass dinnerware--Target Christmas clearance years ago
Ecru napkins--wedding gift
Saucers--Marshall's years ago, gift from my mom (tea set)

Happy Fall!!! Happy November!!!
I'm joining these blog swaps. Please go to their sites and check out the great ideas!

Your fall table is beautiful! Your silver S & P's that were your grandmothers are beautiful! They are such a treasure. I have several things that belonged to my grandmother. What a blessing!

The rich rubies and ambers make a warm and gorgeous tablesetting, and I do love your great grandmother's silver salt and peppers....I love that we both cherish our family treasures with the same passion. You're going to have such a ball diving into your mom's china, crystal, and silver cabinets....and she's going to adore having your close again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful design.

Oh yes! I am very proud of you! :)
I love those colors you used, nice and warm.
I wish my dil lived close I would let her borrow too! She is not into tables, so she thinks I am crazy!
Great table,Meredith! How wonderful you have things from your gma. I will make sure my gkids get some of my things to remember me by!
