Fall is my favorite time of the year and with the cooler weather finally here in Alabama, I had the urge to create a table setting celebrating Autumn.
I started with a gold damask tablecloth and layered a white lace cloth over the gold one. The napkins were an Old Time Pottery find and are a green, white, gold and rusty red plaid.
My inspiration came from these dinner plates and the saucers that I’m using for bread and butter plates. The dishes belonged to my great-aunt and were given to me by one of my cousins. The pattern is “Golden Meadow” by Sheffield.
Gold leafed apples rest in “Wexford” sherbets by Anchor Hocking.
The salad plates are “Italian Villa” and were a thrift store find. The colors in the salad plates are a deeper version of the colors in the napkins.
The green iced tea glasses also belonged to my great-aunt. They were made by Anchor Hocking probably during the 60’s or 70’s and are called “Rainflower”. I used “Fairfield” wine glasses, also by Anchor Hocking, in their Honey Gold color. These wines originally belonged to my grandmother and I borrowed them from my favorite aunt to use in this setting.
The small ramekins for holding butter are “Harvest Vintage” by BH&G.
I love sunflowers, so these made a perfect centerpiece for my table. I also like the addition of the fuzzy branches and small faux cattails.
These little pumpkin place card holders are really cute! They were a Hobby Lobby find and best of all, they were on sale.
Crackled glass votive candleholders have pretty autumn leaves decorating the glass. I scattered berries, pinecones and fall leaves around the center of the table. I also used two avocado colored open lace sherbets as holders for votive candles. They were produced in the 1950’s from “Lorain” depression glass molds.
Although it doesn’t show in the photos, I love how the candlelight shimmers through the jeweled mosaic hurricane globes.
The table by candlelight…
