On The Eve Of Fall!

The inspiration for this week's table was the beautiful rich colors of the tablecloth. I pulled out the gold and purples. The natural thing for a centerpiece was a tray of grapes and fruits.

Purple cotton napkin-Jorge Santos
White wood charger-Pier One Imports
Purple dinner plate-Better Homes  Gardens/Walmart
Gold salad plate-Terra Provence/Goodwill
Purple Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage dessert plate/eBay
Purple handled flatware-Catalogue purchase (can't remember the name of it)
Citrine glassware-Artland Iris
Lavender wine stem-Noritake Sweet Swirl
Grape and fruit centerpiece-Various thrift stores

Thanks for visiting today...hope you will come back next time.

I will join Table It/Rustic & Refined

Since tomorrow is the first day of Fall and it has been a little cooler here, I'd say this is apropos as well as beautiful. Love the purples. The tablecloth is gorgeous and the centerpiece is so fitting.

Everything just goes together perfectly! I just love the golds and purples together. I wouldn't think of them as autumn, but with that tablecloth they definitely look fallish...

Love you,
