Green, Orange and Yellow

I thought I would revise my pose to add our anniversary pictures. Yep, today is our anniversary and we went out to dinner and had a great time. I had char broiled and Rockefeller oysters and John had his usual Caesar salad with grilled shrimp at Breaud's. I was surprised when John handed me a gift box because we already bought and gave each other our gifts last week. But who is complaining, lol! I love my presents, a lovely emerald ring with diamonds and 2 roses plated with 24 karat gold.

Here is another fall colored tablescape. I took the butter and gravy servers to the store but before doing that, I used them on this tablescape.

I just picked and gathered accessories around the house to create this centerpiece.

Copper napkin rings on apple green napkins.

The S & P shakers are made by Southern Living at Home. I think they changed their name to the Willow House now.

the layers

Amber handled flatware my son and DIL gave me one Christmas.

These green bubble glass are part of my anniversary present. Aren't they pretty? I like how the stems are braided.

Plate chargers are "Parsley" by Pinzon

The dinner plates and dessert plates are the same, not sure what the pattern is. I thought at first that the design in the center is a wheat but just realized after I downloaded the pictures that it is actually a yellow flower. Does anybody know what kind of a flower it is?

I mixed in a Fitz & Floyd "Bellacara salad plates with the layers.

Placemats made out of a seagrass fiber were on clearance at Sur La table.

Thanks for your visits, I truly appreciate it. And I thank the following hostesses.

Your hubby just upped the ante for every husband of every person on here!!! All the men are going to want to burn him in effigy because they'll have to step up the quality of their gifts, and all the spouses will want to throw him a ticker tape parade!!! :-) Congratulations on your anniversary! My heart skipped several beats when I saw those dinner plates. I had to go back to look at them again and again. They are beautiful!!! Those are the kind of "year round" plates that I love. Gorgeous!!! The stemware is fabulous with the perfect color! Wow, Christine! Wow!!!
