Welcome out onto the porch today
for an early fall lunch.
I mixed a combination of yellows and reds together
for a cheery celebration.
In Kentucky fall starts off
golden then turns
to hues of oranges and reds.
I used a place setting of my
maternal grandmothers china,
which is roses with a platinum border.
Then added as a centerpiece this
beautiful golden yellow
antique compote filled with apples and pears.
New meets old with the stemware~
a new sunburst pattern yellow goblet
paired with an antique red ruby goblet.
I was so pleasantly surprised that the
Waverly placemat matched
the Dollar Tree napkins perfectly!
Hand beaded napkin rings in colors
of orange, red and lime green finish it off nicely.
I feel like we have only a few more weeks
of enjoyment on the porch
before Jack Frost appears in October!
Remember that flatware set I found on clearance
at Walgreens~here it is again matching the
silver banding of the plates.
I don't know if you can tell but I
snuck a ruby glass saucer under
the bowls of the setting
to break up the patterns a bit.
Here's a better shot of the compote
I get so much mileage out of this
filling it with everything from pumpkins
to Easter eggs.
The bee sugar and creamer were purchased
separately on eBay.
The shading is different but the pattern is the same
the were give aways from an Orange Juice
company in Florida in the 1940's I believe.
I hope you enjoyed visiting the porch!
Miss B and I returned late last night
from our vacation and I can't wait to
share all of the neat stores we visited
along the way in upcoming posts!
