Fall Tablescapes for Kids

Little ones and big ones alike will love coming to the table when it looks inviting and playful.

The rabbit is cut from cheese with a cookie cutter jumping over an apple cut flower.

For my vases I turned our thrift shop find (ice-cream sundae glasses) upside down and added water

and some hydrangea flowers picked moments earlier with ferns from the yard.

Little hands cannot knock these vases over very easily.

Lavender is still blooming here. I rolled a sage leaf around some lavender stems.

The kids can add these to their lemonade, if they like, or put them in their pockets.

Since Halloween is close I took tangerines and put them under cloches.

Sweet little faces made from cheese cut outs and stuck on with a dab of peanut butter.

They'll have their own orange tangerine "pumpkin" to eat grown just for them under the glass house!

These hydrangeas bloom all summer and are still blooming!

Hydrangeas have such a cottage feel. You can be frugal and still have fun.

I am linking to French Country.
