Once I got the linens, I knew I wanted to use the Blue Willow my grandmother collected for me years ago.
Of course, I added the heirloom Wallace "Louvre" sterling flatware to fancy things up a bit.
Wanting to bring out the orange tones, I used the iridescent glasses I bought at Pier 1 years ago, and gold-rimmed green cordials that belong to a vintage set my mother gave me.
Gold painted wood chargers are enhanced by green woven round placemats, and just give the table some texture and color.
For the centerpiece, I simply topped the "Succulent" runner with a small, chestnut board then added my mother's brass candelabra from Lebanon, my grandmother's antique brass candlesticks, along with nandina and azalea leaves.
I fell in love with these orange velvet pillows when I saw them on a fall home tour, so I bought two of them from World Market. I love how they work with the fuchsia overdyed rug and the kilim pillow.
On the buffet, I kept things pretty simple.
Navajo and Sioux pottery along with a statue I picked up in Bolivia rest on a brass tray.
This is definitely a more casual table for me, and I really am enjoying trying something different this year.
Honestly, you don't need to spend a lot of money or use expensive things to set a pretty table, and you can see some of my tips in this video we did a few years back.
Thanks so much for stopping by😀
