With the leaves changing colors, I thought it'd be high time to set a table using these beautiful specimens of God's handiwork.
A white matelasse coverlet provides a textured backdrop for this table. Enamelware chargers that look like leather, Mikasa Daylight dinner plate and soup bowl, Ironwood salad bowls, brown napkin in silver napkin rings, and two vases filled with leaves.
Love this roll of grapevine mesh. Used it to take away a bit of the white and add some more fallish character. Also sprinkled pecan here and there.
The wooden candle holder is one of a kind made by a craftsman in Taos, NM.
Love the way the leaves on the Mikasa dishes peek out and are repeated in the leaves tucked into the napkin rings.
See the faux stitching on the chargers? They really go with so many different things!
Ironwood bowls are fabulous.. just don't soak them in water for any period of time.
Most leaves in Lubbock never attain a wonderful crimson color. Mainly they are green one day, yellow the next and then on the ground the third. Well maybe that is a wee bit of exaggeration, but it's close.
I love the amber wine hocks.. they really do go with most tables this time of year.
See how these dishes really do fit quite well into a fall setting.. the leaves are the same color as the ones in the vases!
I love how well Mikasa planned out the positioning of the leaves on the plates so that they are on opposing sides of one another when the dishes are stacked. Dinner plate and soup bowl.
Although I have the green chargers with the dishes, I thought the brown chargers grounded the dishes better for a fall setting.
Because it's good to see who is sitting across from you, removing the vases to the buffet and bringing in a grapevine basket filled with leaves for dinner makes good sense.
Brought in the mercury glass candleholder to pick up on the silver edge of the chargers, the flatware and the napkin rings.
