For the past few months,
the table is set in our dinning room,
so it looks inviting for potential buyers.
As the season is changing,
I transformed it from summer to fall.
Since we are not formal people,
I made a simple tablecloth, a runner and napkins,
with fall color and a more modern twist.
For the table runner, I used outdoor canvas,
not for its properties but because I just love the design and colors.
I just cut a big rectangle out of the canvas and another fall cotton,
stitched them ride side together, leaving an opening,
and after turning right side out, it was top stitched.
Because of the weave of the fabric,
the stop stitching is not as pretty as I would have liked it.
For the tablecloth I used everybody's favorite:
I first washed it and cut off all the hemming.
Then I cut it to size, and stitched all around it with a wider hem,
mitering the corners
The fabric for the napkins is also a little heavier than usual,
as it is also a drapery fabric (100% cotton), purchased at Hancock Fabric.
I mitered the corners of the napkins too,
it is a detail I always look for when I purchased then,
so I cannot ask less of me!
(even if it does take a lot more time than a regular rolled hem!)
I found these cute place card pumpkins at Michaels,
and I just had to add them!
(There is a better and a lot more expensive version at Pier I)
I used some fall paper to make a pre place card,
I will add a white piece of card stock with the name on top (smaller than the fall paper)
as we have guests!
Now, what's for dinner?
