Tablescape Tuesday - Table for Four

Tablescape Tuesday is sponsored by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

Today's tablescape is set for four and has a fall motif. The table is covered first in a white cloth over which is a square vintage tablecloth printed with fruit. It is placed at a diagonal.


The centerpiece consists of a large ceramic which was made for me by my secretary’s mother back in the early 90’s. Inside it is a spray of variegated green leaves and russet floral bouquets from Michael’s after season sale in 2007. All around are other ceramic fruit or vegetables. Scattered about are silk autumn leaves from CVS end of season sale last fall.
The dishes are my Royal Worcester “Evesham.” The large water glasses are in the Evesham pattern, with each glass having a different fruit – cherries, blueberries, pears, peaches.
The napkins are in light green fabric. The four napkin rings are each a different fruit – peach, lemon, banana, apple. A couple autumn leaves are tucked into each ring.

At each place setting is a different set of salt and pepper shakers. This one is a pair of acorns from Fitz anf Floyd.


Next is Vintage Inarco salt and pepper


A small pumpkin and a small gourd from the Hannaford grocery at $1.50 each.


A halved pear


With its motif of colorful leaves, fruit, and vegetables on the cloth, dishes, glassware, and accessories, the tablescape has a sense of the autumn outdoors.

Thank you for stopping by today. Do leave a comment. For more table settings please see the list of participants at Susan’s blog.

Never heard the term "tablescape" before.

My mum and I have some Royal Worcester Evesham serving dishes, and they are perfect for autumn.

Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog.

This table setting looks AMAZING. You have so many beautiful things--it must have been quite the journey to collect so many cute things. I have never seen something like the pear halves. Too cute!

We haven't unpacked dishes in Germany. Still roughing with the few things we have out... and now wishing I had only a fraction of your collection!

Anita said...

Wow! Just beautiful... you have some wonderful things!

Lovely, Carrie.... I almost collected Evesham as my china when I first got married. I was into fruits then... but I got sidetracked and ended up doing the Spode Italian as my first set of china.

I love how you have set the table.
