Another Fall Table


I am behind doing tables for fall!  I really wanted to do a couple more than what I already have. I can't believe next week is Thanksgiving, then it's on to Christmas.


My friend, Candy at Plum Creek Place, sent me an awesome package filled with goodies...for starters, it had 4 plum Artland Iris stems, 6 of the cutest clear amethyst grape dishes and purple/brass napkin rings...plus more goodies that  I will be using in futures tablescapes. If you have never been to Candy's blog, you really should visit...you will not be disappointed. Thank you, thank you, Candy!


The linens are a bright (polyester, I know, I know!) fall tablecloth I found at Savers for 99¢ and yellow napkins from World Market a few years ago. The tablecloth is perfect for fall with corn, pumpkins, grapes, sunflowers and pomegranates.


To start the plate stack I have used a round woven charger, a gold charger, purple (BHG) dinner plate, gold salad plate (TJMaxx) and purple leafed dessert plate (BHG). I have used the little grape dishes for the rolls. The gold charger has a raised France on the back...Arcoroc, Maybe?


The stemware is amethyst Artland Iris water goblet and a gold Indiana Glass Diamond Point wine goblet.


The flatware is Oneida Louisiana.




The centerpiece is a Bennington pottery pitcher filled with fall flowers and leaves, faux this time; gold, green and cream candle holders. The salt/pepper are in little Bennington custard cups and ceramic leaves. I have also used a couple of black and gold urns filled with leaves and mini pumpkins. Did you notice some of the photos are before I added the fall flowers?



Thanks for taking the time to visit today...hope you will come back next time.

Marigene, this table is the color of jewels. It's beautiful. Not just another fall table by any means. ;-)

Marigene, I love the colors you have used in this tablescape. The purple with the gold is just so Fall but not what we usually see! I love your tablescapes!

And what exactly is wrong with polyester??!??! I have no beef against the fabric. It's useful on the table because it washes so easily. A life without polyester is like a life without....well, you get the idea! :-)

That Candy is one sweetheart-and-a-half! What a nice goodie bag! You really worked with it all and let it shine! The abundance of fall color here is beautiful, and it reminds me that we ARE still in the autumn months...even if it feels like Siberia in January outside!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and that sweet husband of yours from the Nichols household!

Yellow, purple and gold are so pretty together and perfect for fall (or should I say winter?)! So cold here. Have a great weekend!

What a stunning table! I love your color palate, especially the purple! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Marigene, I think I am loosing it. I came by to visit last week and I could have sworn I left a comment. Now I am feeling so bad. I love, love, love this table scape! The tablecloth is so perfect. The golden sunflowers are beautiful and they ground the beauty of the gold wine glasses, the charger and salad plate so prettily. The grapes in your tablecloth tie nicely to the purple goblets and the grape plates (or bowls). Again I am so sorry.... I remember writing a comment but maybe I fell asleep without updating, but here nor there your table is beautiful!

Christine Graves said...

I said the exact same thing and I think I have gotten 2 done. LOL Life just keep intervening...I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving .
