Tablescape # 51 ~Button~Button~Who's Got the Button?

Hello everyone, 
I'm always amazed when I have an  inspiration about a new a tablescape.
 I found the most darling button napkin rings at Yes! Tuesday Morning. And, this tablescape is a result of 4 little button napkin rings.  The hunt was on!   Being a thrifty person . This tablescape was so much  fun to envision .  Looking at the colors of this tablescape today delight me. The golden tones remind me of a Tuscan countryside. My son took this photo of the Tuscan villa where he stayed enjoying the Italian countryside for a few days. Before going onto Rome for the rest of his vacation. 

The moment I saw the Italian bottles at Tuesday Morning the theme for my table was becoming clear.
I will be using these wonderful bottles in other posts, so you will know the history of my Italian bottles.

The centerpiece is a reflection of my love for 'Graham Thomas' the golden yellow color.

The amber goblets are a GW find. They were .99cents each. 

The adorable button napkin rings are placed on a clear button salad plate purchased at TM.
I bought 6 button plates for some extras when my family comes to dinner.

The button salad dish sits on a Tuscan colored plate bought at the .99 cent store

The dinner plate is called 'Contemporary Chateau' Hand painted Stoneware made in Japan. 
The flatware is another GW purchase. I found only forks and knives, so I added my best everyday spoons  to the table setting.

Fun fabric place mats were on clearance, and the chocolate napkins I bought to use for last year's Thanksgiving Tablescape. HERE 
The cutest button napkin rings. I see a DIY in the future. 

The table top arrangement centerpiece and the accessories remind of fall. It will be here soon. 
A few more outdoor tablescapes and tea party in the garden are the plans for the month of September.
At My Cozy Corner.

Well, we found out Who's Got the Button.

A friend of mine gave me this delightful serving dish. 
I can imagine some wonderful chocolate desserts being served.

Outdoors is a great place to entertain.

Happy Tablescaping and Entertaining!

  15. Very pretty table. Love your napkin rings. I have very similar goblets that my aunt bought for me in the 1960's! They came from a large department store. Some one kept yours nice all these years for you until you found them .

  16. Sweet little button napkin rings...I like the way your salad plates echo the round buttons. Nice late summer or autumn color palette. Terrific job!
