Blue and Gold

Join me for some blue and gold hues of fall.
today I mixed my love of blue and white with the
golden hues of early fall

I used some amber glass as well as brown drip wear.

The mix ended up going nicely together.

I like to use my fish knife rests and my frog placecard holders

when I'm using my blue and white plates.

I thought the brown bowls ended the layering nicely.

Here's the layering break down:

First new chargers from One Kings Lane.

Then dinner plates from Meijer.

Then amber glass dinner plates from ebay.

Then blue and white antique plates from DH,

which are slightly smaller than the Meijer version.

Then Japanese plates (with matching small dishes) from ebay

I liked the golden touch in the center of the flower.

Then the brown dripware bowls on top from my Mom.

Some carpet balls from Christmas Tree Shops,

faux leaf garland and sugar fruit are in the center.

These spode napkin rings and salt & pepper were a gift from my Aunt.

I would use these dishes for butter pats, but I'm sure that's not their intended purpose.

A close up of the fruit purchased a dollar tree

and the wave edging of the compote

purchased at an antique store in Cadiz.

Napkins & placemats (same) -Ebay

Flatware -Target

Hope you enjoyed!

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

  3. This is all very complementing! Love the amber colors! Come check out a Ruby Bridges tablescape!

  4. Love the Layering! All the different plates compliment each other and make a very special table! I also love the blue and gold theme. These are our local high school's colors and they have won 5 games in a row. The last time we had a winning season was in the 1970's, so we are all pretty excited :)

  5. Very nice fall table, Jennifer! Isn't it great to work in an industry that encourages fun?!! I miss it terribly sometimes. When I retired in 2009 and closed my store, I cried for days. I cry even more these days when I think about all the great stuff I sold that I should have kept!!!! :-) Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Your centerpiece is really pretty. Perfect colour for autumn.

    I never think of blue/gold. But, it's really gorgeous, combo.

    TY for sharing.

  7. Those chargers are amazing. I think blue and brown are so pretty together. It is perfect for fall. All of your balls are so unique. I thoroughly enjoyed all the variety you put together for this charming table.

  8. very pretty fall table. Love your mom's bowls.

  9. Alycia,
    I understand completly. I had to sell and give away hundreds of things I had accoumulated from the years of my gift shop and marriage, so many beautiful tabletop fashions: sterling silver and gold flatware,china,stemware, place mats, napkins and napkin rings, large collections of each and much much more. I can only hope those who now own them love them half as much as I did. They set such beautiful tables for those who care enough!

  10. Jennifer, this is a gorgeous table setting! I came over to just let you know your name was selected by the random generator to win the giveaway with The Tassel House...and I got distracted by your beautiful table. :) I announced the winner in today's post at BNOTP. Congrats!
