This first table includes Hull and McCoy "Brown Drip" dinnerware, Imperial Glass "Old Williamsburg" amber, Hazel Atlas "Dots" and a Walmart gold goblet. The napkins are from Marshalls and the napkin rings are the bamboo ones I use all year long from BBB. Sterling flatware is "Louvre" by Wallace.
The next table borrows the same paisley runner but on the reverse solid gold side. Inspired by the brass candelobra from Lebanon and gold leaves from the yard, I have used tones of gold and white. The rattan chargers and napkins are from Walmart. Indiana Glass "Whitehall" glassware, Oneida "Golden Julliard" flatware, and napkin rings from Pier One. Mikasa "Italian Countryside" dinnerware...
This is probably my favorite table from last year! Inspired by the beautiful red Japanese maple leaves, I used leaf salad plates in different colors from Walmart along with Mikasa "Italian Countryside" dinnerware. Rattan chargers and napkins are from Walmart and are combined again with Wallace "Louvre" sterling flatware. Amber and ruby glassware as well as beaded candle holders are from Pier One.
And finally, just to show that blue and white goes with every season, another favorite table combines Churchill "Blue Willow" with pieces I collected in Japan including the rice bowls, saki cups, tea set and chopsticks. Blue goblets are from...Walmart! I really do love this combination of the reds and golds with blue. I used the same napkins and chargers from Walmart as the table above, but with a totally different result.
So there you have some of my favorite tables from last fall using a lot of the same elements in each with very different looks. You have so many options if you just take what you have, borrow a few things from mom, and cut some weeds from the yard. Voila...a beautiful table:-)
Don't keep it for yourself, though! Share your blessings because "when someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required." From Luke 12:48.
Let me encourage you during this season to look outside your own family. We take care of our families all year long, so what a great opportunity for our families to get together and take those blessings and spread them around to others:-)
Thank you SO much for stopping by:-) Please join Susan at "Tablescape Thursday" and be sure to visit her participants and the many, many beautiful tables. Have a blessed week!!
