My First Tablescape Thursday - Fall Lunch for Two

So excited to participate in my first Tablescape Thursday sponsored by Between Naps on the Porch. I decided to start out simple and pretend I was setting the table for myself and a close friend. Hence the name, "A Fall Lunch for Two." I used only what I already had on hand. To keep things light and airy, I opted for a monotone color palette.
What I used:

Table and chairs - antique oak English dough table from a North Carolina flea market
Chair seat cover - vintage grain sack
Plates - vintage white Independence Ironstone by Interpace
Napkins - linen from Pottery Barn
Flatware - stainless steel by Dansk
Glasses - vintage finds from a yard sale
Small silver salt & pepper shakers - vintage finds from a yard sale
Table runner - made from new linen. To learn how to make one for your table see my tutorial, "A Simple Table Runner."
Glass candle stick and candle - Pottery Barn
This was such a fun project. I will definitely give it another try again some time soon. Please let me know if you have designed a tablescape. I so enjoy seeing the creativity of others.

This looks great! I love the simplicity of it ~ which, of course, is great for a lunch. Love the cute little pumpkins in the glass ~ a nice nod to Fall.
