A Golden Day


We have had some of the nicest days of the year this past week. Sunny, warm, just gorgeous. The inspiration for this table started with a beautiful Vera-like gold, brown, orange and white tablecloth. I say Vera-like as I couldn't find her signature anywhere on it.


The napkins are a warm brown hemstitched linen held with wooden bead napkin rings.


The plate stack begins with a woven charger, white BP cabbage leaf charger, burnt orange BH&G dinner plate, Sterling brown and white salad plate and finally a brown Boston Warehouse handled soup bowl set. I used the gold BP crescent shaped salad plate to hold mini pumpkins and a roll.



The flatware is Oxford Hall Fashion Wear in rust.


The glassware is Noritake Provencial in amber.


The centerpiece is a brown candle in a simple metal candle holder that is supposed to look like a wheat sheaf.






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

I will join Table It/Rustic & Refined.

Oh I'll definitely come back next time - this table is just too gorgeous. Love the amber glasses - I've been looking at some at the thrift store - I might have to get some. Love the dish stack and those handled soup bowls are to die for. I can almost taste the fresh clam chowder in them - followed by a meal of roast vegetables and grilled chicken. Now look what you've done - now I'm hungry. Lovely lovely table.

We've had an awful week of cool and windy weather! It looks like your nicer weather will be arriving here this week, luckily :) Very little gold to be seen in the trees here either, which is later than usual. Lovely Golden Table!

Really gorgeous Fall table! The colors are as spectacular as Fall foliage (if we ever see any colors down here in Alabama). You really do have a talent for working with color.

Such a gorgeous table Marigene! I love a pretty fall table and need to set one soon. Your tablecloth is gorgeous. I found similar stemmed glasses at a thrift store. :)

Monica @ Texas Fiesta Ware Fan said...

Beautiful as alway Marigene! I've missed you. I am going to try to be around more often.

I do believe I bought the napkins that match your tablecloth at Tuesday Morning a while back. The gold and amber floral colors make a lovely setting for your fall table. Beautiful! Love the handled soup bowls, they are a favorite around here for serving chili.
