Warm, Exotic, Elegant and Fall-ish, Do You Agree?

It's Thursday and it's time to have fun with our dishes and tables. Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ hosts this meme weekly. If you want to treat your eyes with fabulous tablescapes, be sure to visit her and her participants.
I am also happy to link with Rhoda of http://southernhospitalityblog.com/ for her Fall Party. Thanks for the invitation, Rhoda. You should all go to her party too!
I like using the game table in the family room for tablescaping because it is small and it does not take me a lot of time to put the dishes and table accessories away.
The table cloth is orange and beaded and it came from St. Maarten in the Virgin Islands.
For plate chargers, I used Costa Nova in pearl cream, which were made in Portugal. The dinner and salad plates are made by Tracy Porter in Artesian pattern.
Rattan napkin rings with dolls.

This doll napkin ring looks Mexican.


For a centerpiece, I used a Tracy Porter Artesian cake plate with a peacock serving as pedestal holding it. The pitcher is also made by Costa nova, in pearl green.
I bought the leaf candles from Pier 1 when they went on clearance after the season last year. They were really cheap, about 39 cents each, I think. I used a small leaf plate to hold them. Goblets are amber bubble glasses from Amazon.
Here is another leaf candle. I like the glow of the orange candle. This one is in upright position. I also used little amber turkey taper candle holders, also from Pier 1. All 4 of them were only over $1 and the set included 6 taper candles.
Just another view!
I used 2 types of flatware. I bought the plain squiggly bronze ones on clearance at World Market for 45 cents each but they only had forks and spoons. So I took my Siamese mahogany handled bronze knives, teaspoons and salad forks to complement them.
I really like these candles. I wish I bought more. Their price was definitely right.
Thank you for viewing another fall tablescape of mine.

Thanks, Susan and Rhoda for this fun and exciting game!
Cheri of http://itssoverycheri.blogspot.com/ asked me to feature our house tomorrow, Oct. 2nd so I hope you will all be back here to see it and then visit Cheri also.
