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
From the Williams Sonoma Website:
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.
