Alrighty then....

I have long wanted to have this blog. Then....I did what I do. What if it isn't perfect? What if people think I'm stupid? Do you know Mr. Whatif? I don't much care for him. I need to evict him from my mind thoughts!

So, here we go. Here are a few photos, (which I have not learned to perfect) of my fall dining room.
The other really scary part of doing this is trying to teach myself how to navigate through the whole computer process! See I already need to learn more about placement of pics and much to learn!

What I really want to share is this: I just can't exist on the planet without constantly trying to create beautiful spaces and places for me and my family to enjoy. So, I'm going to being to try to share the little that I know with you in the hopes that you too will have spaces filled with love, good food, and the family that you love!

Next up:
 Individual punkin pies
Mini haunted house for trick or treaters! (complete with witch)

How I Did It:

Tablecloth from
The gold napkins and placemats, from Dansk awhile ago
Sunflower plates, Pier 1
Red placemats and napkins, Pier 1
Candles and mirrored candle holders, Fred Meyer
Silverware, San Remo, from Horchow
Clear Goblets, Macy's clearance
Gold bubble goblets, Lord only knows
Napkins rings, Pier 1

Hugs and confidence,


  1. I think you did a beautiful table. The fall colors are gorgeous. You know, I think we all want to make pretty things for our homes, and it's fun to share our little space with others. I know mine are far from perfect, but I enjoy bringing beauty into my little home.

  5. Welcome Lisa! I just started the end of August. You have some great things and I love your colors. I know I like lots of pictures and info on where you bought things. It can be very time consuming until you get a routine going. Best of luck.

  6. Well, hello, Miss Lisa! Nice to "meet" you! Welcome to Tablescape Thursday and the world of blogging! I want to say that you have started your blog for all the right reasons. You love beauty all around you, and you want to share your creativity with others. I applaud that! Don't worry about getting things "right" because that comes with time and experience. The ups and downs of blogging are a good teacher. This is a great group out here, and no one is out for blood. Everyone likes to help each other to move forward and do better. You can pretty much ask anyone for help or advice and it'll be there at your doorstep. No one will think you're "stupid." We all learn from each other...and that's the beauty of blogging! Come on by to visit me at Table Twenty-One anytime. I'm always thrilled to have new visitors, and I'm actually hosting a giveaway this week that you might be interested to help get you started. I'm looking forward to seeing you grow as you build your blog in the months to come. We want to see pictures and get details, details, details! :-) Welcome aboard, Lisa! Have a great weekend!!!

  7. Hi Lisa! Well, I think you did a fine job on this table!! Love your use of color! I am a newbie as well as your newest follower! I hope you will follow me, too! Looking forward to getting to know you better! Be blessed!

  8. Hey Lisa...glad you jumped in!! Your table is very pretty. Such lovely colors. You've done a wonderful job. I have lots to learn but the process is fun anyway!

  9. Terrific tablescape and what a pretty flowered centerpiece and those fall hues a great. I like your colored candle and the glass candle holder with the leaves. I want to see more pics of the horses. Happy Fall, Pam

  10. "Whatif" you hadn't shared your tablescape with us? We would have missed out on your wonderful eye for design and color. We all have to be the new guy at some point. You'll be amazed at how quickly you'll pick up on things...also, just ask for help. There are some really savvy bloggers around here...I don't happen to be one of them...and they are always dear to come to the aid of others. Welcome aboard! You're going to love the journey.
