As I was setting the table for dinner tonight I thought I would snap a few photos to share. This is just a simple impromptu fall setting pulling together a few autumn colors. I substituted a pair of 14" round Tava chargers for a tablecloth. They are crafted of beautiful rattan. I've had these for a couple of years now, but don't seem to use them enough.
Longaberger Vintage Vine pottery, inspired by the Ironstone pottery that was made and imported from England in the mid-1800's brings a timeless elegance to the table. The lovely shade of cream beautifully contrasts with the soft brown color that is hand-rubbed over the embossed vine and leaf design.
Graceful scallops, scrolls and flutes accentuate each piece. I will be using this dinnerware set until the winter months.
Harvest pumpkin napkins are my favorite!
This glass hurricane has been around for ages. Today it is filled with faux leaves and acorns. It is a nice versatile piece I can decorate for the seasons. Enjoying dinner by candlelight is so romantic.
The petite pear casserole is by Le Creuset. It is adorable and looks just like a fresh-picked pear. This stoneware is great for dips and side dishes. Wouldn't it be dreamy filled with a delicious pear cobbler?
A bird's eye view ...
Oh, I must be going now as I heard the oven beep. I wish you a wonderful evening. After dinner I plan to curl up by the fireplace with my kitty Cheops.
