Feathered Friends and Fruits

I thought I would create a transitional table since it is getting somewhat cooler outside. And I always love the color of Fall.

I already had the pomegranate inside the cloche as my centerpiece so I just continued using it. Then I placed my rooster tablecloth. I think I bought it from Williams Sonoma years ago but this is the first time I've ever used it. Then, I remember seeing my tin fruit plate chargers that I saw in the garage while organizing there. They are the perfect color so I used them too. I got them on Ebay way back before I was even blogging.

I decided to use my Palftzgraff white dinner and salad plates in "Confetti" pattern to add a lighter color since it is not really Fall yet. Then I topped the setting with a bowl with peacocks
Since I decided to title my post "Feathered Friends and Fruits", my apples and strawberries S&P shakers would blend right in.


I have amber stems stored somewhere but could not find them so I used this set since they were stored in a cabinet inside the house and were readily available.
I added chickens in my centerpiece.
and rooster tea light holders and a vase a friend from Natchez gave me and placed fall colored leaves and flowers in it.
I have that little cute peacock another friend gave me from my Natchez days.
The orange flatware my son and daughter in law gave me one Christmas, looks right at home on this table.


Oh, I also found a little parrot lidded dish in the buffet table drawer and just added that to the table.








My napkin rings are various white feathered birds.
And I love using this tea set between summer and Fall.

Thank you so much for the visit! My feathered friends thank you too.

I appreciate all the hostesses of the memes that I enjoy linking with. Thank you so much!
