Tablescape Thursday is hosted by Susan from Between Naps on the Porch.
I've long been a reader of the beautiful and informative blog, Between Naps on the Porch. Dish and dinnerware fanatic that I am, Tablescape Thursday was one of my favorite days. It comforted me to know that I was not alone in my quiet accumulating of dishes and glassware, my flatware fanaticism, and linen lust! Now that I have a blog of my own I've decided to take part, beginning with this harvest table set for a late October meal.
I wanted the placemats rustic and the dinnerware simple. The dinner plates were from my collection of Fiestaware, alternating yellow plates with crimson ones. The bowls are from a set of dishes called "Autumn Splendor." I can't tell you how much I love these.
The napkins were made by my dear mother who can turn any piece of fabric I give her into something lovely for the table. This fabric she found on her own and I think it's just perfect. I'd told her that I wanted something that smacked of fall and food. Her choice of the Indian corn pattern did both perfectly. The goblets are also a favorite. My mother bought them on a whim back in the 70's along with the chunky yellow-handled flatware. After 20 years of use she was ready to move on and passed them to my welcoming hands. They are bold, and fun, and surprisingly versatile.
I hope you enjoyed my harvest table.
