Zoulah welcomes you to her Fall into Halloween tablescape. You see if it were up to her, you would be seeing a Halloween Tablescape naturally, but this is a compromise table for this time of year.
The other night when we were getting ready for dinner Zoulah grabbed some orange dinner plates and some black salad plates, and I said, "Whoah, it is not Halloween yet!" Zoulah gets a bit excited about Halloween and deals! She bought these dinner plates and salad plates for one dollar each at Tai Pan Trading this year.
So she grabbed a red bowl for the soup and said, "There are you satisfied?" Yes, I was. Strangely enough I liked the combination.
Somehow her color combinations seems to say what this time of year is. It's fall on the verge of Halloween. The Fall Blocks were made by my daughter Tatianna last year. I bought the vibrant table runner many years ago, in my suit and pumps era, on a lunch break on the K Street Mall in Sacramento. That seems a lifetime ago...
Yes, Zoulah I do like these colors together.
This is the soup we ate, and it was delicious. I found the recipe on Pinterest and it is a winner. I will post about this later.
The Pumpkin tureen was a find at TJ Maxx and more in St. George, Utah this summer. I stuffed it with a chrysanthemum for the tablescape. Zoulah wants you to know that I was able to spell chrysanthemum without the aid of spell check :). Yes, I did win my second grade Spelling Bee.
It comes with an adorable ladle. Many, many moons ago the ladies at my church made a soup tureen like this. For some reason, I didn't, and I am always reminded that I didn't make one when I go to my Mother-in-law's home at this time of year. Oh those days of crafting in Relief Society.... Finally, I have one of my own!!
