Since there were only two of us, I used my small weathered white wooden table and two metal chairs. I put the chairs on each end, which left the center under the table open and empty. Since we did not need that space for our feet, I put one of my Tropicanna planters dead center to fill the space.
I used my Maple leaf dishes. I love these dishes and try to use them as often as I can during the autumn season. Earlier today I was at Walmart and they had these green foliage napkins marked down to $1.00 each. I spent just a few moments debating whether to buy another set of napkins. For only $6 for 6 of them, how could I resist?
It just happens that they work great with my green salad plates and my 1970's-era avocado green goblets.
My recently-completed orange/yellow/black table runner also worked nicely. I am glad I can use it for tables other than Halloween.
The centerpiece was my faux pumpkin filled with flowers from the deck, a sprig of burning bush and a couple sprigs of Maple leaves in their fall glory.
I scattered more Maple leaves around the table.
I also scattered a few autumn-colored kisses. They were for dessert.
Guess what we had for dinner?
LOL. Some people might think I did a lot of work for a taco dinner, but it didn't take that long and it was a sheer pleasure to create this table.
