First off, thank you for all the prayers and good thoughts for my husband while he is undergoing chemo treatment. He is just completing the first of 6 rounds, 5 days each time, as an in-patient at the hospital.
I love this time of year, it lets me use so many rich, warm colors of autumn. I have set a golden sunny table today...can you believe we are heading into the second week of September and everything is still green, which is very unusual for this part of the country. I have combined golds, greens, browns and a little rich ruby in the table runners. The linens are sunny gold tablecloth, colorful table runners in ruby and green napkins held with rusty metal napkin rings.
The plate stack begins with woven chargers, a medium green dinner plate, dark olive green salad plate and warm brown soup bowl set.
The flatware is Oneida Louisiana.
I love the olive-y green stemware.
The centerpiece is a bowl of cleverly made plaid acorns and acorn candle holders. Someone stuffed plaid material with soft foam, then glued it into Bur Oak acorns, which happen to be the largest of all native oaks in North America. The caps can measure up to 2-inches across and has fringe around the edge.
Thanks for visiting today...hope you will come back next time.
I will be joining Table It/Rustic & Refined.
*** I saw these acorns at Love Feast Shop and they are selling for up $20 each!
