Pumpkin Patch




I have used the same tablecloth as last week, this time with orange dishes. Quite a different look, I would say.



The orange charger/dinner plate is the first layer of the place setting.


I used the same aqua salad plate I used with the purple last week, to bring out the bits of aqua/teal in the tablecloth.


Next is the pumpkin salad/dessert plate, followed by a small pumpkin soup bowl.




The glassware is a tangerine Noritake Perspective water stem. I also have the tall champagne/sherbets, too.



I opted to use a plain pumpkin orange napkin with a simple fold.



I tried two centerpieces and finally settled on the taller, sparser one. No candles as this table will be used for a luncheon with friends.




Rim shot!








Do you have a favorite between this week and last week's table...purple or orange? I like both, but think the purple edges out the orange by a hair!

The orange definitely has my vote! Orange used to be my favorite color until I learned that my skin tone doesn't like orange!.....
love you,

Love the tangerine glasses, they look so bright along with the pumpkin plates and bowls. They do go well together. As to whether we liked the purple or orange better. Although I like them both, my vote would be last weeks, I was just so impressed how you put the purple plate with colored leaves and the purple glasses together, how it pulled all the colors from the table cloth.

OMG....I love it even though I'm not crazy about orange. It's gorgeous all put together and the oranges are so vibrant. Love the glasses.

Very pretty look! I like both table settings, it's a very pretty tablecloth.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love that tablecloth and what a different look you achieved this week with the orange. Love it and the plate stack. Cute pumpkins bowls. I agree the purple edges out the orange by just a hair. Maybe because the purple is so different this time of year. Great job! Hugs, Linda

Leslie's Garden said...

Hmmm, really hard to pick a favorite! The purple is more elegant, and I love the deep richness of it. The orange is more fun and vibrant. I love them both!

Blondie's Journal said...

Very pretty, Marigene! I didn't see last weeks but I really do love the setting here. Your dishes are so festive and I LOVE the natural centerpiece! I hope you have a wonderful luncheon!

XO,
Jane

Hmmmm...I don't know, Marigene. I'm an orange girl through and through, so I'm going to have to vote orange just because! :-) I love purple, too, but if you were to twist my arm, put a gun to my head, waterboard me, put matchsticks under my fingernails, drive nails in my skull, and make me listen to rap music, I would have to go with the orange! :-) I love how you created a completely different look with just the switch of the predominant color!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Perfect Marigene! I love the orange!

kitty said...

Wow, Marigene, what a great look with the same tablecloth. I vote for both looks and best of all you didn't have to change the cloth, just the dishes.

Dianne said...

Living in Tennessee, this is definitely a BIG ORANGE table! The fabric look wonderful with new colors. it's so great how you can transform something, by just changing a few things. Dianne

Marlis said...

Oh Marigene.. sooo soo pretty. The tablecloth is just perfect and I can see it being used all through November, too. I love the orange glasses and plates. And I really like the pumpkin plates and bowls. I just love how your table turned out.. xo marlis

I missed last weeks so I took a peek back- I love both of these but I do favor last weeks with the purple tones. What a neat tablecloth- it affords a lot of looks! Your plate stack is great and I love the rim shot!!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi Marigene, I like both tables--isn't it amazing how different the two tables are with the same tablecloth? I love the tablecloth and can imagine even more combinations with it, from simple settings to more elaborate. Linda

Red Couch Recipes said...

Zoulah and I vote for the orange. I have never seen such vibrant orange tumblers and I also love the orange charger and the bright orange napkin. Love both of the centerpieces, but I am liking the arrangement with the pieces that droop down. Such a vibrant table. Joni

Marigne,
I LOVE them both! ok, I know that doesn't count...so, I chose the purple "royal" hues of last weeks post! Isn't it amazing how making a switch can create a magnificient difference??? Again, I adore BOTH tablescapes!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Love that tablecloth and the orange plates and glass! I will have to go back and check last weeks, but as a pumpkinaholic, this will be hard to beat!

Sandra said...

What a beautiful table. The orange stemware immediately caught my eye. Love it! The pumpkin plates and bowls are the perfect touch to this fall table. Thanks for sharing. Everything is lovely.

Mary said...

What a delightful pumpkin patch to dine at! I think the purples and plums were so different they really made an impression with me. Your wonderful cloth is worthy of lots of tables & dining!

Gina said...

This is such a pretty table! That tablecloth is wonderful...so unique. I love your orange stemware too.

Linda Primmer said...

Love the tangerine goblets, so different and that tablecloth is beautiful. What a darling table you set.

xinex said...

That tablecloth is so pretty, Marigene. I really like that, so unusual, it looks like it tells a story. Beautiful colors on the dishes....Christine

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh my word, I'm swooning over your layer of dishes with the orange too! The tangerine glasses are awesome, what a gorgeous color Marigene. I did black and orange last year so I chose silver this year, but I love orange! The tablecloth with the pumpkins is adorable too! Big hugs,
FABBY

Orange is one of my favorite colors, Marigene! I love those orange plates from Walmart! Did you buy them this year?

The French Hutch said...

Hi Margine, Your tablescape is gorgeous with all the pretty layers of shapes and color. I love, love, love that tablecloth. It's almost to pretty to cover up. Great look for fall.
Have a great weekend.

How beautiful that table is! Wow!!
I loved every single thing you did. The table cloth is just so cute..
My table is black and orange this year too. Darned if I remember what I did last year.

My brother lives in New Hampshire..I wonder if he felt it. I haven't heard from him. :)

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh I do love your pumpkin table too -- It's too hard to choose when they're both so wonderful!

Sue said...

Marigene....those goblets are gorgeous...never seen glasses in that color....love them!!

illini89 said...

oh I wish we were neighbors, so that I could borrow your dishes! :)

Entertaining Women said...

Amazing how you achieved two completely different looks...one more sophisticated and one just plain fun. The orange goblets make me have the "wants." Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Tammy Partin Spangler said...

I love your tangerine glasses! I have never seen any before and they look gorgeous on your beautiful table!

Sarah said...

I'm in love with that table cloth! It has such a wonderful folk art feel. I have to say both tables are fantastic, but the orange one gets my vote. Those bowls are so cute and remind me of a large Olfaire bowl in my own cupboards. ~ Sarah

It is quite a different look! What a great stack! The table looks great, such cute pumpkin plates! I like them both!

laurie said...

I adore that tablecloth, and I love the way you've picked up the colors in your place settings. What cute bowls. Your center arrangement looks stunning (I like the tall one also). It has been awhile since I've visited your blog. That photo in your header of that gorgeous china pattern is stunning. laurie

Debbie@Mountain Breaths said...

I love this table! All of the orange is fantastic. The stemware really bowls me over. I have never seen orange stemware before. SWOON!

Hi Marigene!

I mentioned how I liked the colors of this tablecloth in your last post. Talk about vibrant... the oranges are show stoppers!

I have enjoyed visiting and getting caught up on your blog :)
