I have been wanting to do a bright cheerful table so this is my transition from summer to fall table!
I bought this never been used embroidered tablecloth with matching napkins (which I didn't use today) at the very end of fall last year from Goodwill for $1.99 and napkins 59¢ each. I have been itching to use it. The pattern has been embroidered around the edges of the tablecloth, also. I pulled the orange and turquoise, two of the brightest colors, with a little of the autumn gold for the main colors. I kept the dishes to a bare minimum with such vibrant colors...simple is so much better in this case!
I used two solid colored napkins, bright orange and turquoise with beaded napkin rings, a gift from my friend Kathleen (Cuisine Kathleen). If you have never visited her fun blog, you really should take a moment to do so.
The buttercream charger is Pottery Barn Sausalito, the orange dinner plate is Better Homes & Gardens from WalMart.
The stemware is Noritake Sweet Swirl in aqua.
The centerpiece is a beautiful tureen given to me by our friends Paul and Denise. It is cream with an orange and brown transferware pattern. There is no backstamp on the bottom, so I have no way of knowing the maker or pattern. It has colors perfect for autumn.
I couldn't decide on candles or candle holders. First I tried large chunky black candle holders with pumpkin pillars, but felt they were too heavy for the table. Next I tried glass holders with aqua tapers, didn't like that, ended up with the glass holders and pumpkin pillars.
