Most tablecloth collectors I know have an active wish list of "most desired" cloths. I was lucky to find one of my tabletop most-wanted's at the last Brimfield fair earlier this month. It's the perfect time of year for these Wilendur Autumn Leaves to fall on the tabletop...and the perfect day. It's time for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch !
The leaves on this cloth are done in a naturalistic style, so I continued that theme in the centerpiece, using acorns, buckeyes and leaves from the yard "under glass."
A squirrel candle holder is a most appropriate addition, don't you think?
The placesettings feature post-86 Fiesta dinnerware in juniper, ivory, chocolate and cinnabar. The napkin ring is also from the Fiesta line.
The flatware is Oneida Deauville.
That little squirrel gets around, doesn't he?
The Villeroy & Boch Boston glassware rests on vintage aluminum coasters in a leaf design.
Other items on the table include contemporary marigold napking and Fiesta prep bowls in chcolate and marigold.
These bowls are a new addition to the Fiesta line, and they are great for both preparation and serving. Special thanks to my dish buddy Crystal for trading with me so that I could have a chocolate bowl. The bowls are sold in pairs of the same color, but Fiesta is all about the mix-n-match, so we collectors have dispatched parcels across the U.S. to obtain the colors we want!
