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.
Follow me on Instagram

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