We went out gathering pine cones a few weeks ago (we have mostly Redwood trees in our area, but there are other trees here and there that have pine cones. If I had more time I could tell you about the "adventure." Just heed my advice - don't go pine cone hunting with my sister. Gratefully, I did manage to make it out alive and relatively unscathed....) Anyway, Pat pulled together a few other items and in just minutes had the centerpiece done. Then she got on to the place setting - I think she aced it.

Close up of the place setting
Pat paired a brown Lenox Clarion water glass with a simple clear Libby wine glass
We found this fantastic flatware at Tuesday Morning last December
The five piece place setting - Woodland by Cambridge
Pat started with an ample soup bowl
Salad plate is next - sage green stoneware
The unadorned dinner plate matches the salad plate and soup bowl. They sit on a brown charger.
The placemat started it all - a recent purchase from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Abeige napkin is surrounded by a sage green textured napkin
Black wine-like napkin rings are just perfect for this texture-theme tablescape
The infamous pine cones............
