Fall Table Using Myott Staffordshire "Indian Tree" Dinnerware

I am home for 2 weeks and then back to Florida again, so I thought I would play while I am here. After cleaning up the house entirely (never got to the outside yet), I set a Fall table in the formal dining room . I wanted it to look a little formal so I dug out my Myott Staffordshire "India Tree" dinnerware from the garage. I think I found this big set from Ebay, stored them away and never used them until now.

I pulled out my rust colored ruffly placemats.
Starting with a leafy plate charger I bought from Walmart some years ago, I started layering the plates, dinner, salad and bowl.
Then I pulled out a clear green vase from the floor behind the tread mill and stuck some various orange and yellow flowers in it.
I pulled out 2 types of flatware sets, an orange and this reddish rust colored ones and you can see which one won. I think they work better with the placemats.

The set even came with sauce bowls and servers.

The embroidered runner came from either TJ Maxx or Homegoods.  I have matching throw pillows but I took those to our Cape Coal, FL home.

Green wine glasses and gooblets with a very subtle orange tint

The set came with a doz. set of teacups and saucers but I only used 8. I had a sugar and creamer servers but no coffee pot so I went to my teapot cabinet to pick one that would work with the set and I found this. Now, I have another project when I am watching Rochelle's kids, go hunting for a matching teapot. This teapot is also made by Myott but the pattern name is Hedgerow.
I think the pattern is very Fallish, don't you?

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit. Thank you too to the hostesses of the memes I am linking with which follows.

That's a lovely autumn setting. Thanks for the inspiration! My parents also have a set of Indian Tree that was inherited from my grandfather and they spent years shopping at warehouse sales and antique shows to complete it. Next time I'm there I have to show off a setting.

Gorgeous Fall tablescape. The Myott Staffordshire Indian Tree is just beautiful ... great find. I giggled when you said the vase was behind the treadmill. I store things away just like that! Happy Fall and Happy Tea Day!

Hi: Your table is breathe taking. I went through each picture very slowly so I would not miss a thing. I don't think anyone can set a table like you do. You and your home are amazing. Sending hugs your way. Martha

Such a pretty table Christine! I love this pattern. It goes great with that gorgeous teapot too!

Cindy said...

So much beauty in one spot. It looks like you were expecting guests of the unique kind. I have just one server of this Indian pattrern, my sister-in-law holds the same platter. The goblets just have enough orange that they could be used other times. Lovely
