Today is Katheen's "Let's Dish" Harvest Challenge. Come and join us!
I have not taken down my pumpkins from the attic yet and I have not seen them in grocery stores or have just not been looking for them yet, so I decided to use fruits for my harvest table.
The setting is in our formal dining room.
I cut some yellow sunburst flowers from the garden and put them in a fruited vase.
I placed Mr. Squirrel pitcher on a short Corinthian pedestal.
Tha tablecloth is by April Cornell. It has flowers and fruits.
I just took different fruits and placed them in a lidded (with lid taken down) server, which I placed on a plateau, for my centerpiece.
I bought the squirrel pitcher from HG in Pensacola last year.
I added a topiary on each side of the table. The pots match the tablecloth and the dishes.
I borrowed the candles from the living room
Antlers votive candle holders..... is this a buck?
This heavy marble plateau has grapes too on its iron base.
White promeganate ceramics that I bought from Williams Sonoma last winter.
Then I remembered I had these fruit bowls that I bought from a junk shop in FL before we even moved here and I added them to the table.
I have had these plate chargers hand painted with fruits, made out of tin, from when we lived in FL also. I won a dozen of them from Ebay. See? I was already a dish addict even before my blogging days:-)
I bought the ceramic pumpkin and artichoke (I think that's what they are, please correct me if I am wrong) napkin ring holders from New Orleans about a year or 2 ago.
Flatware were from Neiman Marcus or Horchow. They called them red but I think they are more rust in color and they blend really well with these place settings.
Clear glass goblets with pineapples and green wine stems were from TJ Maxx from a long time ago.
Fanned dinner plates from West Elm, I just got them on line on clearance and Mottadeheh Vista Alegre Summer Fruits luncheon or salad plates from Ebay. I just love the scrolls on the edges and their colors and the different fruits.
Thanks for this Harvest party, Kathleen. I hope I lived up to the challenge. To see more, please visit her at
