A White Fall Challenge with Pewter

 When we think Fall, we usually think oranges, greens, browns, yellows, maroons and even purple but never white right? Well, Kathleen of Let's Dish has challenged us to create a Fall table with predominantly white with just 1 color added. I love challenges and I hope my table is able to live up to that.

All white with just a little touch of silvery pewter.

The tablecloth has white embroideries and piercings all over. It's from my favorite linen store in Grand Cayman. I really like their tablecloths there because they do not absorb dirt and they can be machine washed and do not need to be ironed. I think the material is microfiber.
I immediately thought of using my white pumpkins that I bought from Lynn's store from a few years ago. I borrowed my silver plated mirrored plateau from our bathroom, usually holding my perfume bottles, to elevate them. Then, I added some bottles with silver mercury and votive holder, and I got my centerpiece.

I had pewter colored candles that I placed on a white iron candle holder.
Finally, I got to use my Fleur de lis set of flatware that I bought from Horchow about a year or 2 ago. I think they have a pewter look. They even feel like it.

My place setting started with a white plate charger that I bought from JC Penney's about 5 years ago. Don't they match my flatware? The dinner and salad plates are American Atelier in "Bianca" pattern. I have had this set displayed on the top shelf of my black hutch but hardly used them too. Finally, I placed a white lidded individual serving pumpkin bowl that I bought from Marshall's (2 last year and 2 more this year).

I also added some white acorn place card holders from Williams Sonoma and the napkin rings are white farm animals that I bought from an antique store downtown.

I bought the wine glasses from a local estate sale. I love the etched flowers. but I have no info on them.
 The tea set is all white with a cameo. I cannot remember where I bought it but the white wicker with a glass tray is from Florida. The lace runner is from an antique store downtown that closed before last Christmas.

While I was setting the table, I saw the hummingbird drink from the feeder. So cute!
Thanks again for stopping by. In addition to Kathleen's meme, I am also linking with other parties. Thanks to all you wonderful hostesses!
