A Table For Two

A Table Inspired By Nature & A Few Bloggers...

Acorns collected from an afternoon walk and Coleus from our garden

When bringing acorns into the house...just give them a little bake first
(Just to get rid of anything that might be living inside)

I hadn't given a lot of thought to tablescapes until I started 
seeing creative ideas on some of the blogs I follow... 
I simply got inspired!

This simple scape made our dining experience so special.
It elevated our meal of 
Grilled Pork Chops and Roasted Vegetables
to a whole new level.

It was well worth the extra effort
even if it was just
 for the two of us
Especially Because
it was 
For the Two of Us!

  1. What a beautiful tablescape! I like that cute little table...Christine

  2. Geneva, I'm also loving your tablescape. Thanks for giving me the great idea of the smaller table atop the larger table. I'm thinking the small table/stool that sits beside the old "red cabinet" on my back porch post might work well that way, too. I can hardly wait to try it. Thanks for being my newest follower and I'm your newest one, too.

  3. Hi Geneva!

    What a wonderful nature-inspired tablescape you have! I especially love the touches of acorn that you added! :) Thank you so much for stopping by my blog & leaving a kind comment - it is much appreciated. :) Take care & have a most wonderful week!


  4. What a beautfiul table for two. I so like the acorn idea and may have to go sneak some from the squirrels out back. Now one day this week I will have to surprise my husband with a lovely table setting for two. Thanks for the inspiration.~~Cherrie~~

  5. You've really created a lovely and ethereal table setting, Geneva! Adding in the little bitty pumpkins,apples, and acorns were great "fall-ifying" touches. :-) I'm glad you came by for a visit today- so happy to meet you.

  6. Geneva,
    your tablescape is lovely! Love all the nature inspired touches. I love acorns, but just in case, I got some from my MIL's house once to keep and after a while, little creepy critters came out! I think you have to bake them on low for a while in the oven, not sure how long, might be able to find out on web. I love them used in decorating. Thanks so much for visiting and leaving such a nice comment! I'm your newest follower also, will be visiting often!

  7. Hi Geneva, this is truly an inspiring post! I love the ethereal and soothing atmosphere you have created with the greens and whites and browns.... beautiful use of natural elements with such a loving effect. The green bottles and the green Coleus in the crock pot looks so lovely and the bowl of acorn adds the perfect texture.Your inspiration has brought out your creativity and I love that! Keep inspiring us with wonderful posts like this! Thanks for visiting me and for your loving comments. Have a great week!Happily following you back~Poppy

  8. Looks beautiful! You might want to bake those acorns while there in your house...we just had a creepy crawly issue from collect was gross!
