Autumn Blues and Beige Tablescape

This week's table uses the season's "hottest" color combination - blue and beige. Pat started with plates that we found at Pier 1 early this Summer (in all honesty, she really doesn't care for them but I love the color combination.) Then we found beige and various shades of blue pumpkins to accent the tablescape.













Where it came from:
Blue Hemstitch Placemat and matching napkins - from Pier 1 several years ago
Charger - "Edme" by Wedgwood from eBay and Replacements.com
Dinner Plate - "Martillo Almond" from Pier 1 three years ago
Accent Plate - from Pier 1 this Summer
Flatware - "Treble Clef" by Gourmet Settings from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Glassware - "Reflections" by Imperial Glass Company from Replacements.com
Pumpkins - from Michael's, TJMaxx, Ross, and Tuesday Morning
Pumpkin Napkin Rings - from Pier 1 four or five years ago
Greenery - from Michael's this year

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:  http://www.rustic-refined.com/ "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:  http://betweennapsontheporch.net/

A Shameless Plug:  Please join us on our other tablescaping blog, "Table for One," designed for the person eating alone:  Here.  And during the first 25 days of December, we set a different table everyday featuring some of our Santa Claus collection and assorted dinnerware.

Celebrating Women Veterans Table

This week's table is set to celebrate and thank all of the women Veterans of the United States. Pat set a more formal table in red, white, and blue with accents of silver.






Noritake "Reina" has a delicate band of white on white flowers and leaves with a thin platinum trim


Pat found these gorgeous diamond cut goblets at Ross several years ago (naturally called "Lady Diamond")

Pat made red, white and blue paisley napkins specifically for this Lady Veteran's Table

Flatware is sleek "Sculpt" by Lenox

Even the vases are "Lady Diamond" by Cristal D'Arques
