It's finally cooling off a little here in Florida. I thought I would set our table with my Italian Meridiana Ceramiche dinnerware.
This is totally staged because we would already be in Chicago to visit my 97 year old mom when this posts.
I thought the plates have fall colors and I used ruffled burnt orange placemats to add more rustic color.
I mixed 3 types of my faux flowers and stuck them in a vase with putti (that's Italian, right?), to create a centerpiece.
I bought the goblets with yellow pineapples from either Marshalls or TJ Maxx a long, long time ago. The yellow wine glasses were from an antique store in Natchez, MS.
I used the same table runner as I used last week with my ghost tablescape but I took out the black spider web. I think it blends really well with the dishes.
Isn't the orange squirrel cute?
I really love this vase. I bought it from an antique store in Natchez. I miss those antique stores downtown that I frequented when we still lived in MS.
The flatware with lion handles (one of my favorites), I bought them probably at least 8 years ago. They used to live inside my flatware clotche but have been replaced by my Napoleon Bee flatware for now.
The plate chargers are MacKenzie Childs enamelware. I think they are part of their Flower Market collection. I have 2 each in 3 colors, white, pale yellow and green background. The napkins have a green leaf embroidered on them. I borrowed them from a tablecloth set that I purchased from Grand Cayman.
"Meridiana" Italian cermiche plates. I bought the dinner plates from a resale/antique shop in Destin, FL. and the salad plates were found at various times at Marshalls and TJ Maxx. I have a lot of other pieces too stored in bins in the garage, including square dinner plates and bowls and lots of serving pieces.
Not too Italian but I opted to use my "Indian Tree" tea set. Some pieces were manufactured by Myott and some from Davidson and Sons, Ltd, all from England. We are having cappuccino and espresso, therefore I took out the demitasse cups even though I have regular sized tea cups too.
Not too Italian either, but our living room now has the colors of Fall.
Thank you all so much for coming. I hope you enjoyed viewing the table as I enjoyed setting it up. Thanks to all the hostesses for the fun parties I am joining.
