Late October Table...

I started this week's table with a tablecloth I have had for ages, a sort of typical fall scene...barnyard, rooster, sunflowers, pumpkins, and brightly colored leaves.








Instead of the reds and oranges I went with white and green for the place settings. I started with an white dinner plate, that is used as a charger. They are Chantilly, pattern unknown. These were $4.99 for 4 at Savers. 




The salad plate is a plain green by Tabletops Gallery, Napoli. These were found at Goodwill for 49¢ each.



The soup bowl which will be used for a chopped salad is made by Gibson. These were also bought at Goodwill for 49¢ each.

The flatware is Oneida Louisiana stainless. 





The glassware is a simple olive green stem. I think these were found at Savers last year.



The napkins are from Savers, $1.99 for 4. They are olive green with a brownish edging. The brown napkin rings are Better Homes & Gardens found at WalMart on final sale at 50¢ per package of 4. I also got gold and green ceramic ones for the same price!




The centerpiece is green candles/white candle holders and a compote with gourds and mini pumpkins.





The rim shot...









I have a new camera and tried some different settings this week. Once I get used to it, I think I will really like it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit each week.

I will be joining a few parties this week and hope you will follow along.

Marigene...this is one of the best fall tablescapes I've seen! The tablecloth is perfect with your pretty dishes and glasses. What great bargains you got on everything at Savers! We don't have one of those. I love the centerpiece, too, the compote is pretty!

Have fun with your new camera!

How pretty and simple. Those white dinner plates with scalloped edges are unique. Love the olive glasses to. You've just tied everything together to compliment the tablecloth, right down to the little pumpkins and gords. Very Thanksgiving looking! Sue Z.

My favorite shot of all was when you showed the aerial with that wonderful tablecloth. I LOVE that. It sets the place setting off perfectly. I also like the napkins and that compote for the centerpiece. It was simple enough not to compete with the linens, but perfect for the table.

I love the tablecloth! I would like to see it done sometime with a pop of black in some of the design elements. Your plates were such a wonderful deal...you scored big time on them! I like the emphasis on the greens...a great harvest themed table. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

What a great tablecloth to set your dishes on. I enjoyed reading all, I take it, your family or close friend's comments. I love the dinner plates! Your new camera takes crisp shots. I loved the picture where you could see all your tureens. As you may know, we were packed up and ready to move, but someone backed out of our home. My husband is in VA and I am in UT. The other day I went to storage and got out a couple of tureens -- I don't like serving soup without one. You have a nice collection. Nice table. Joni

Thanks, Pam

What a lovely tablescape you've created, Marigene--I love the dishes, napkins and napkin rings that you found at such great prices. Take me along next time you go shopping, 'kay :)? I enjoyed hearing from you today, and glad that you enjoyed my ribbon-covered lampshade!

You have the eye for tablecloths! Beautiful fall table!

Tammy Partin Spangler said...

Love the tablecloth! I like how you worked your centerpiece items in without covering the pretty detail of the tablecloth!

Bunny Jean said...

Hi Marigene!

Those chargers are fabulous! Love how they are elongated. I also like that tablecloth with the harvest scene. I need to start a collection of "scene" tablecloths.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

I just adore your tablecloth. You may have had it for a long time, but it is a treasure. So appropriate for a fall tablescape. Using the greens with it keeps the focus on the tablecloth. And having a centerpiece with natural elements only reinforces the fall theme. So beautiful!

Lorraine said...

This is a very beautiful autumn table filled with pretty colors and patterns. Lovely!

Barbara F. said...

Lovely fall tablescape. Nice mix of pieces and the tablecloth is really pretty. Love cloths like that. xo

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

Great photos, Marigene. I could tell right away you must have a new camera. Love the shot with your tureen collection in the background! Very pretty tablescape.

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Hi Marigene,

You did a great job with your photos; I noticed even before I read that you have a new camera. It does take practice though, doesn't it?

I love your tablecloth and the colors you've chosen for your plates and goblets. Everything compliments each other just perfectly. I think your Oneida is lovely; we have the Oneida stainless "Tennyson" pattern. I've always thought it was pretty, but I think I like yours better. :)

Thanks for sharing your pretty table and have a wonderful week!

Denise
