Another Plum Table

I am still on a purple kick, so here is another table in shades of purple!

I started with a damask tablecloth (that needs to have the creases ironed out) and added the napkins.

The bottom layer of dishes is a plum dinner plate being used as a charger. The white luncheon plate is topped with a purple cabbage leaf salad plate. The bouillon bowl/underplate are the top layer.

The flatware is mismatched silverplate.

The glassware is an amethyst water glass and an amber dessert/tall champagne stem. In this case it is for the croissant caramel bread pudding.

The centerpiece is a vase of grocery store flowers flanked by white candlesticks and plum candles.

View outside my front door. The color has been exceptional this fall.

You have so many pretty plum things Marigene! I smiled when I saw your tablecloth, I don't like to iron either! I tend to use placemats! Love the layers in your plate stack~and that gorgeous tree!

LOVE the plum, and the way is looks so pretty beneath the teacup. Don't fret about the wrinkles. I must have spent an hour ironing a tablecloth and it didn't end up looking much different from the way it did when I started.

Marigene, I love your plum plates and the amethyst crystal. Your color choices are so pretty. The pictures of the fall foliage are stunning. We had beautiful color here in Ohio this year too. The high winds have about taken all of the leaves down now.
