Woodland Wonderland



I look forward to Walmart's Christmas ornaments each year and spotted some nice antler ornaments for 1.99 that I knew I could use for a Woodland themed dinner party at our camp. Came home and immediately switched from pumpkins to antlers within 24 hours of Halloween. Yes, October was filled with wonderful memories, and I'm glad I started decorating and planning mom's party in September but it's time to move on to Fall décor.
The antler fork in the photo above has been at our camp for 45 years. I think it came from one of my grandparents, and I absolutely love it. When my parents built the camp, friends and family were very generous and gave us items to furnish it. We still have the vintage kitchen table and chairs that a neighbor gave us. I didn't care for it as a child, but I love it now.

Don't you agree that the Woodland Wonderland theme is fitting for our cabin in the woods? It's our little slice of paradise, and our backyard is FOREVER WILD. We saw a moose on our property three years ago. Joe has a wildlife camera attached to a tree, and we've captured just about every living creature.  We started a journal at the camp several years ago, and have filled three of them so far. Many wonderful memories. 

Thanks for stopping by! I am joining

  3. When DOESN'T that happen to me?!! I always forget what I came to any store for when I spot decorative items! ;) The antler décor was a great find and you've created a terrific t'scape! Is that a Realite faux candle I see? Love those! The touch of blue on the plates with the amber coloured leaf bowls is a great mix. Yes, this look is great for your cabin!

    1. It's very campy, and not flashy. Just the way we like it. Everything is pretty much a hand me down from dear family and friends. Thanks for your sweet comment Monique.

  5. Great fall table for a cabin by the lake. Sometimes I am really surprised at what can be found at WM. I love the color of the dinner plates...the salad plates would be great for my outdoorsy brother!
    Have a great week, Debbie.

    1. I was thrilled to see the antler ornaments at WM. I don't like paying a ton for napkin rings since I usually use them once for our themed dinners.

    Love the table setting.

    1. You nailed it Lynn. A perfect place to get away. Very rarely do we see our neighbors, except in the summer.

  9. I enjoying enjoyed the peek of your cabin at the end of the post, Debbie. Just the driveway up gives a glimpse of your slice of heaven. Your outdoorsy themed table is perfect for a reminder of your love for your camp. Those ornaments from Wal Mart make for great napkin rings. The carving fork is a treasure! I love the deer salad plates and the camo flatware from Cabelas, a favorite store of Rich's. This table just made me smile, thinking of him and his love for the outdoors. xo

  10. Funny what was abhorrent to us as children is now a treasure. The table and chairs from your neighbor back in the day was probably the bane of your existence, but now...bliss!

    This is a beautiful rustic tablescape. It really captures the feel of the surroundings. I was in WalMart the other day, but I never thought to look for those cool antler ornaments. Now that I know they exist, I think I'm in trouble! Field trip!

    For some reason, looking up that driveway at the cabin reminds me of the movie "Dirty Dancing". Weird, huh? Nobody puts Debbie in a corner! :-)

  13. I love the little antler ornaments, Debbie. So perfect for your cabin. And the stag horn serving fork is a treasure! I have several sets of stag horn steak knives that I love. I learned the hard way as a young bride that you do NOT put them in the dishwasher :( Ruined one or two. Eerily enough, a buck just ran through our yard! No kidding!

    1. I'd love to see your stag horn knives! Are they on your blog Susan? What a fabulous wedding gift.

  14. In the woods or out, this is just a great table. I'm crazy for the textures and the accent pieces that tie it all together.

  15. The cabin looks adorable! What a blessing your parents sacrificed so they could pass it down . Very woodsy tablescape, perfect for the cabin.
