A few years back one would only think of rich oranges, reds, yellows and browns as fall colors, now
purples/plums/aubergines top the list.
I started with a tablecloth that definitely depicts fall; pumpkins, colorful leaves, people with long sleeves, rakes...this is my favorite one for fall which reminds me what it would have been like a hundred years ago. Plus it has great colors...
I started layering with woven placemat to which I have added a plum dinner plate that is being used as a charger. On top of the purple is an aqua plate topped with a plum plate.
The glassware is my favorite of the purples I own. I think this came in an amber also, that I foolishly didn't purchase.
The knife and fork is a very plain pattern I can't seem to find any of the books I have. It is 1847 Rogers. The spoon is Oneida/Community Forever, circa 1939.
The candle holders are amythest with gold. I used cream colored candles.
I have again used the compote from my friend, Sue Z, this time filled with mini pumpkins and gourds.
