Paper Harvest Tablescape

I made the little pumpkins from the idea of the Paper Harvest I found on the Econobusters website. I used scrapbook papers that I had on hand. I plan to use the pumpkins again as placecards in another tablescape.

The white silk flowers came to me out of desperation for some floral foam that I needed for a mini pumpkin flower project that I was doing in September. I could not find any foam at any of my local stores so I went to a thrift store and bought a basket of white silk flowers so that I could use the foam from it. It cost me $3.00 but then I wasn't sure what to do with the flowers or the basket. I saved them because I didn't want to waste my money and I knew something would come along that I could use them. I used them on this tablescape and another tablescape that I will show later that I am calling Paperwhite Tablescape. I also used them on Paperwhites that I gave to my kids Director's for the play they were in this past Saturday "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe".

The pinecones and the basket I got at the Clothes Closet for free. At a thrift store this summer I bought a set of 6 brown cloth napkins for $1.29 and I used one to line this basket. I also bought the tablecloth and tablerunner for $1.99 each.

The green candles came in a box with 6 candles. I bought it at the Family Dollar for $0.60 when they had a going out of business sale last fall.

The nut jar I got at a thrift store last fall for $3.00. I think it is cute and my kids love to eat the nuts in it.
