Crow & Corn Tablescape

When I received a lovely, and unexpected, bouquet of flowers from a secret admirer on my birthday (I know who the admirer is, but I'm not going to tell any of you!), I knew that I had to do a table setting to feature it.
Autumn themed tables are among my most favorite, probably because I tend to have more dinnerware in these colors than those of any other season. Or, maybe it's because I dearly love these crows and like to use them as often as possible. Who knows? All I know is that I had a wonderfully fun time putting this table together.
When the flowers arrived -- alstroemeria (also known as Peruvian lily), my favorite -- in these lovely fall colors, I knew they would look just perfect displayed in my vintage corn pitcher. Putting it on top of this checkered tablecloth seemed absolutely perfect, and it was easy to build the table from there.
I wanted to use colors of the harvest. Those include not only the warm colors of gold, brown, copper, and russet, but green as well. I think this combination looks wonderful on the table.
I have a vintage corn tea set, so wanted to use the cups. Don't they look adorable?
Then I figured, what the heck? I would go all out and use my corn on the cob holders as well. I think they frame each place setting nicely.
The plaid dinner plates on top of the majolica leaf plates are some that you all have expressed liking a great deal. I am so thankful that I jumped on these plates when I did, because they sold out in a flash. Plaid never goes out of style, but I rarely see it in autumn colors. These plates were a great find, and I know I will use them a lot.
I topped the plaid plates with these pumpkin plates, and love the look. I had the grandchildren over on Sunday, and they always enjoy my tables, quite happy to have a smaller plate with pumpkins on it to use for their meal.
The flatware with a little log cabin just says cozy to me.
The glassware consists of brown stemware that I got from my mother, and these wonderful Old Crow wineglasses that are such a treasure! On a table where crows make up a part of the centerpiece, I wanted to replicate them in this glassware. Aren't they whimsical and fun?
I hope you enjoy looking at my fall table as much as I enjoyed dining at it.

I too love all things fall, and this table is just delightful. Your corn-themed dinnerware is beautiful, and I see the faux crows are threatening to attack again - such fun! Those Old Crow wineglasses are unique and adorable. You have quite an interesting collection of tableware and use it so creatively. I always enjoy the way you combine color, pattern, and texture in your table settings.

The flowers were a pefect inspiration for your table. I love the rich colors you used. The corn accent pieces were a wonderful choice. Love that cute coffee cups and that tablecloth. Those are great crows- I need to pull out the rest of my fall/halloween items.

I LOVE the mix of patterns here!!! I have really gotten into pattern mixing as a decorating staple (it was hard for me...I'm so OCD!!!), and I love to see when people do great mixing jobs! Now, about that secret admirer....::: ;-)
