I'll use different textures to conjure up images of the fall fields and woods surrounding our home.
Silk, leaf-patterned place mats in brown and gold cushion our plates, and an assortment of broken-glass mosaic votives line the antique trunk we use for a coffee table's edge. (See more here , here, and here)
I'm using flatware by Towle that I've had for 30 years. Nothing fancy, but I love the subtle hint of gold on their edges that add a little extra something to the tablescape. I've never grown tired of this classic pattern!
The botanical print dessert plates will stand in for salad plates tonight. These little plates were purchased at Ross: $3.99 for four! They compliment all of my other dishware with their varied colors.
Bunches of faux grapes encircle brown silk napkins, and add to the "harvest" theme.
The candlelight adds a lovely, soft, warm glow to the table.
It's still bright outside. But soon the sun will set behind the mountain, and it will be time to pour the wine.
Then I'll relax and enjoy a casual meal in the living room by the fire. That's the way I like to serve dinner for two on a crisp fall evening, here on the redwood coast!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits mean so much to me, and I hope that you'll be back soon. Leave me a comment and say hello. A big thank you to Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch, for another fun Tablescape Thursday!
Until next time
