Falling into Autumn with Sunday Supper

Thanks for stopping by
this was a quick table I set
to get the feeling of fall without
going full pumpkin theme, 
which I am told by my 
daughter cannot happen until 
after Labor Day.
 Mixing new with vintage
and paper
with "real" tabletop is my favorite table setting.
I started with these vintage gold
sun pattern glasses.
 I used burlap plate chargers with 
ivory cablenight plates they say 
warm and cozy to me.
 My Horchow Bee flatware is a favorite, but
since this was a casual quick table
I only used the dinner fork and knife.

The flowers were such a warm mix
of orange crush and free spirit roses and 
sundance flowers, safari sunset & mahogany berries.

My final layer was these large
dinner plates and napkins by
Caspari -note no pumpkins! 
The garland of leaves 
and berries detail 
is gorgeous.
Overall I think it says
Welcome Fall!
I had to share this last blooper photo
with the boss in the background supervising.
Hope you are having a great day!

Fall Brights with Tobacco Leaf

Welcome to August!
The weather broke last weekend and I was 
able to go out on the porch and setup
this early peak into fall table.
I used the pattern mix of IKAT napkins 
from Pottery Barn a few years ago, 
with bamboo flatware
& the tobacco leaf inspired
dinner plates and napkins.


My centerpiece was a mix of pink wonderfulness
including hyrandgeas, roses, china berries and bunny tail grass.
 Pulling some of the blue from the pattern
I used my set of vintage Indiana glasses in
what I believe is the Colony Park Pattern.
 Each place setting had a Villeroy and Boch 
fruit napkin ring given to me years ago
from my sweet Aunt Mimi.
 When I found this Mottahedeh tobacco leaf pattern
I knew I wanted it for fall.
Here in Kentucky, nothing signals early signs
of fall than the tobacco plants 
turning from their bright green to gold.
Best thing about this table is
both napkin and plate are paper
so easy clean up!
If you are interested in purchasing
the real china Mottahedeh pattern
you can find out 
more information about
the Mottahedeh pattern 
Magnificently embellished with 27 colors and hand-painted 22-karat gold, 
Tobacco Leaf was the 18th century’s most coveted pattern 
and still looks bold and brilliant today. 
A tiny phoenix perches atop the salad plate’s bouquet of 
lush leaves and flowers of the Nicotiana plant, 
while delicate scallops and blooms festoon the rim. 
Each piece is beautifully handcrafted of white porcelain 
and hand glazed by the 
artisans of Mottahedeh, a company dedicated to 
reproducing treasured antique patterns since the 1950s.
At $145 per salad plate,
It is definitely an investment pattern.

filled with this tobacco leaf plates, napkins 
and more goodies for sale!

St. Patrick's Day Victorian Clipart Project

Hope everyone had a nice
Valentine's Day!
Now onto the March holidays
and hopefully some
warmer weather.
 This weekend I had a chance to 
site for some Victorian
St. Patrick's Day 
clipart.
 If you have never visited her site
you should plan to stop by
she has such an archive of 
images and graphics.
 I really don't do much for
St. Patrick's Day in the way of decorating.

 This weekend I was thinking
about what I would setup
and decided just
a tray and a few
decorations on the bar.
 I think these adoreable Irish
will make a nice addition
to my picture wreath.
I will share the finished project
with you so, but wanted
to share the images today
in case you had a few projects in mind.

Valentines February Tray

Last month I shared my
which was a lot of fun and
sat out at my bar area for most of the month.
Today I'm sharing my 
February Tray, 
which is just in the nick of time
before Valentine's Day
this weekend!
 I recently saw this croco embossed
black tray on sale at One Kings Lane
and thought it would be perfect 
for my tray nights.
 I started with square black border plates
and added red heart love napkins
along with these adorable black
lab heart cocktail napkins.

 Two little heart candles are up in the corner.
and red and white striped flatware
matches great with the cocktail napkins.
Tonight I'm watching Suffragette
while the hubby is out enjoying his 
boys night.
I love all of the actors so I hope it's good!
Thanks for visiting today.

Valentine's Day China Cabinet Displays 2016

Thanks for stopping by to visit today.
Last week I shared with you
some Valentine's Day 
Today I'm sharing
this year's decorated
China Cabinet at home
and at the booth.
 This year at home I used blue and white
in combination with reds and pinks.

 Pink plastic heart plates from Target
were light weight enough to display between
the back row of dinner plates
and the stack of saucers and bowls.
 I used more of the Cavallini postcards from my
February table inside the cabinet.
I like that they are paper therefore they are lightweight
but they are card stock so they are able to stand up on their own.

Next we visit my black and red china cabinet
at the booth over at 
The Red Scooter Antique Mall.
It was perfect for Valentine's day
especially since this display has 
gone to dogs, with black lab
tea towels and cocktail napkins.

I couldn't resist the Bee Mine towels
since I love, love, love bees!

I think the modern stripe and heart napkins
mix well with the milk glass
vintage collectibles.
 A few chalkboard bud vases and some burlap
gift bags join the display.
Finally, I added the Bless your Heart sign
on the door
and some chalk board
dessert plates and napkins below.
I hope you and yours have
a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Valentines Day Table

Thanks for stopping by!
Today I'm sharing by February table,
with a not so subtle Valentine's Day theme.
 
 Starting with this heart & check tablecloth
I mixed in my blue and white plates, heart shaped bowls,
vintage ruby goblets, pink depression juice glasses
and clear flatware.
 I used clear flatware so you could see the detail
of the napkins -Xs and Os
(I am singing Elle King's song now)
 
 To mix it up I put some velvet & glitter hearts
in the heart bowls along with a Victorian Postcard
because no one can have enough velvet, glitter
and hearts around Valentine's Day right?
Here's a better close up of the glasses.
I began adding in touches of pink after first
setting up the table because it
looked a little red, white and blue to me.
 
 Which led me to using my cherry blossoms as the centerpiece.
I like the height it gave the table, but it made it hard
to photograph without getting too much
noise in the picture (dining room chairs).
Around the branches I hung my clipart from this post
and various blown glass heart ornaments.
I hope you enjoyed this table setting.

Valentines China Cabinets

I showed you my 2015 china cabinet 
decorated for Valentine's day

But this year I wanted to change it up a bit.
I searched google images to find
some inspiration.
I love this black hutch
literally spelled with L O V E!


Domestic Fashionista did a fabulous job
with this white cabinet with the sweet banner!

And for all seasonal china cabinet/hutch
inspiration I turn to Jeanneselep.blogspot.com

and it is always wonderful!
