We've come to another Tablescape Thursday, hosted by our talented Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Each week she gathers a host of wonderful tablesettings for our continuing delight.
This is the first table I’ve done in months due to my illness from a small stoke on April 2, 2010. I am certainly glad to participate in Tablescape Thursday again.
I call this an early fall table because I need to break into fall gently. While I find it a beautiful time of year I am also uneasy with all the debris on my front steps, driveway, lawn,….every where. All those fallen leaves makes for lots of raking and for a rather messy appearance. So for this table setting I thought to avoid spreading leaves over this table as I’ve done on fall tables in the past. I also left off my acorn items, but will include them on another fall table. (Actually, I still have to take out all my fall decorations!)
A soft yellow cloth forms the background.
Plates, bowls, cups and saucers – Royal Worcester “Evesham” fruit pattern
Chargers – gold and silver lacquer
Goblets – RW “Evesham” & amber depression glass Indiana “Tiara”
Flatware – Mikasa “Estasi” – stainless edged in gold
The center piece began with three tall faux floral sprays, to which I added some dried hydrangeas from my garden.
Decorative accessories include an orange ceramic pitcher, Fitz and Floyd covered pumpkin on tray, Fitz and Floyd radish salt and pepper shakers, Italian ceramic squash and melon, gourd salt and peppers, and other fruit shapes. A covered amber glass candy dish from a consignment shop anchors another corner.
This view of the place setting shows the matching “Evesham” linen napkin under the forks:
The table hints of fall but not in a very exhuberant way. I trust you find it pleasing, nonetheless. I will do another fall table soon.
