Tablescape Thursday – Another Fall Table Setting

For this fall table the general effect is golden and amber, taking its cue from amber depression glass.

The tablecloth is a pale yellow. The amber Rosemary Dutch Rose luncheon plates, which were introduced in last week’s post, are set on golden chargers from Target. Next to the plates are matching Rosemary Dutch Rose 5" desert or berry bowls, made by Federal in 1935. A golden fruit is placed in each bowl to add to the golden-ness of the table.

The flatware is from my Mother and is gold with an embossed floral motif.

The crystal is Lenox "Autumn" goblets.
(In the breakfront we see the Lenox "Autumn" dishes, which my mother pointed out that I have not used in a long time. True, I don't want the job of taking it out, after having it to clear it all out for painting the dining room!)

The center of the table consists of a large 13-inch diameter amber platter holding a yellow glass bowl in which is a Fitx & Floyd covered pumpkin.

On either side two contemporary amber tumblers embossed with stars hold sprigs of delicate white flowers with muted green leaves.

The whispy flowers echo the light brown embroidery on the large napkins.

On either side of those are two ceramic fruit in muted tones of green, yellow and light orange.

Thank you for visiting Oak Rise Cottage today. I hope you will visit again soon. Please leave a comment. Be sure to visit our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more lovely Tablescape Thursday posts.

I am also linking this post to Leigh's “Thrifty Thursday” at Tales From Bloggeritaville. See more participants at her blog.
My local consignment shop was the source for several of the items in today’s tablescape:
The six “Rosemary Dutch Rose” plates cost $14.98 – a great price for depression glass!
The large amber around four dollars; and three of the star tumblers at $3.00 each:
Even the floral sprays came from the shop!

From Target via Amazon.com came the six chargers at $15.99.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my golden fall tablescape!

Great price on the depression glass... I am finding it increasingly hard to find the pattern I collect, and I lost most of the pieces I had in the tornado, so I've started collecting again, lol...
