Bring On Fall!



I left the top on my laptop open and one of my kitties got up on it, messed things up and did weird things to my computer last week...think it is all fixed now. I am not proficient enough to do everything on my phone so I missed making most comments last week...sorry.

I bought this runner and place mats several months ago so thought it was about time to use them.
They are plum, teal and gold.



The napkins are a deep plum so I gathered them into deep plum water glasses. I have also used amber Diamond Point wine stems.


The teal dinner plate is by Roscher & Co., the gold dessert/salad plate is Terre Provence and the soup/salad bowl  is Royal Staffordshire Tonquin by Clarice Cliff. I used the Oneida Louisiana flatware again this week.





The centerpiece is just candles in a small wood compote.







Thanks for visiting again this week!

I will join a few parties this week.

Thanks ladies for hosting each week!

I love the colors on this and the purple napkins in the glasses. I admire the amber glasses. This just speaks to fall and the rich colors. I also admire the purple and white transferware. Joni

Marigene.. gotta love them kitties. Mine tries to help me when I'm on the computer because I'm ignoring him.. so he prances across the keyboard. I do love your runner and placemats.. just beautiful. The dishes are the perfect accessories to them for sure. xo marlis

Oh Marigene, this tablescape is stunning! The color combo is to die for and it goes perfect with the lovely purple transferware dishes. That runner with the tassels is gorgeous. Kittys are very mischevious, lol.. Thank you for your sweet and kind visit, it makes my day.

I love how you used the purple. It is so pretty!

Thanks for coming by, I had to smile at your comment about Molly, the princess and lady of the house. She is definitely underfed and the poor thing is neglected as well.LOL

What a beautiful color combination! I love the teal and the purple and the way you have angled the runner. It's the little details that count!

The new placemats and runner are the perfect choice to highlight the treasure that is your Tonquin bowls. They are spectacular. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

SUCH pretty colors, Marigene!!!!! I love how they all work so well together! Plum is one of those colors that just makes you think of ripe, juicy fruit and I don't think anyone can resist it! Sorry your cat had his way with your computer. We don't have any pets, but I have a husband who does the same thing to me sometimes! :-) Have a great weekend!!!!!!!

Marigene, your runner and placemats with the fringe is so elegant! I love how you placed the runner on an angle. The color combination is so gorgeous with the teal, gold and purple and then, your arrangement of the stacked plates is terrific. I especially love the purple and white transferware. This a very dramatic and wonderful tablescape! I love viewing your tablescapes and glad your computer is on the mend for no matter we do love our pets. Your guestion about the sunflower plates is there is a mark on the back of GTB ceramica plus made in Italy. I found this set at Home Goods earlier in the summer and just now I looked up the company and only found a little information on line. Your comments were so kind and I always appreciate you visiting the blog.

Thanks, Pam

Monica @ Texas Fiesta Ware Fan said...

Ooh!! It is so rich!! Looks fabulous. I may have to try this combination myself. Great combination!

Sarah said...

Marigene, these rich colors are perfect for a fall tablescape. Sorry about the computer mishap.

Sarah said...

Me again. I forgot to comment on the beautiful Tonquin bowl in the lavender color. I have some pieces of this pattern in brown. Always looking for me, but I've not seen any in the lavender. It's lovely!

The runner and place mats used for inspiration are a great color combination. You have inspired me to use plum and gold together. Beautiful!

I love the purple with the amber glasses!

Diann said...

Well, you gotta know I was going to love this purple table! The table runner and placemats are gorgeous! And I am so envious of the purple transferware dinner plates. That is my number one item on my wish list. Just beautiful Marigene! Thank you for joining TTF!

Tricia said...

Oh, that runner is stunning! I really love the table you set to feature it -- and the plum glassware made my heart beat a little faster! I have virtually NO purple tableware, but that is such a pretty purple that now I want some!

Judy Bigg said...
