Grapes Are On My Mind

This fall I am not into pumpkins and gourds, I am on a grape kick...tables and eating them! They are my favorite snack, especially green grapes.


The tablecloth is a recent Savers purchase $3.99 less 25% senior discount.


I wanted to do another mostly green table and seeing I used purples last week I only used a tiny bit in this week's. I had to keep myself in check, though!


I have had the napkins for ages. The napkin rings are the same ones I used last week.


The flatware is Oneida Louisiana.


The water stem is green Ivima 1895 Hobnail. The wine stem is handpainted.


The dishes are Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf...yes, I did use them with in a grape theme! The green ones were a gift from my friend JoJo and the purple ones from eBay.


I used a green sandwich plate as the base of the centerpiece with a single pillar candle and faux grapes.





Thanks for visiting this week, do visit again next time. I appreciate every comment you leave.

I will be joining Let's Dish/Cuisine Kathleen.

This is so beautiful and a wonderful respite from all the pumpkin orange. I'm inspired to do something with my plastic grapes...

Marigene - your table is wonderful. It makes me want to fly to Napa Valley for some wine tastings - lol!!
Love all of your Bordallo, especially the combination of green and purple. I have always like those two colors together. Great napkin rings and tablecloth!

Love the grape tablecloth. I need some grape napkin rings! I have been searching with no luck. Everything looks beautiful together. Dianne

Very VERY pretty Marigene! All those luscious green tones play beautifully with the purples.

I really like seeing the one you did prior to it, as well. Two very different looks using many of the same components. BRAVO!

I can't believe you have dishes that goes so splendidly with the tablecloth. I love the combinations.

Grapes are good any time of year and especially harvest time if you ask me! And I have always admired your cabbage plates, I too would use them with everything! Looks like a lovely autumn table to me!

I love the color combination, and that you used produce as a part of your centerpiece. I always find things like this both unique and practical. As for the tablecloth, lovely, and I cannot BELIEVE what you paid for it. Or maybe I can't believe how I am overpaying for mine!

Marigene said...

Nice table!
