Fall White Plate Challenge

Each week, Pat and I participate in Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish" (  blog party. Kathleen issued a challenge to all tablescapers for this week - design a Fall table using white plates only and one other color. Here's what we came up with:

The place setting

Pat used this flatware last week on our other blog, Table for One Tablescapes, but it was just the perfect choice for this week's place setting.

Naturally, Pat had to use these over sized amber goblets and wine glasses

These amber cracked crystal pumpkins are from Pier 1 

It seems like everything on this table is from Pier 1 - these plates are no exception. They are called Madeline.

The dark amber/bronze color of the charger is a perfect match to the amber pumpkin stems

White vintage napkin is held by a beaded amber napkin ring

Candle holders are Depressionware glass

The five piece flatware place setting - "Fluence" by Oneida

Pat used an assortment of amber pumpkins and squash in different sizes as the centrepiece - simple yet elegant

We will be joining Cuisine Kathleen's "Let Dish" this Wednesday:


  1. The amber color is lovely -- perfect with the white dishes and for fall. But I'm surprised Pat didn't nestle those pumpkins and squash on a bed of straw (LOL)! I love the color of the charger, which I thought was brown until I saw its photo. Thanks to the two of you for another beautiful table!

  2. Oh, I love the amber with white! Your table looks very elegant and definitely spells AUTUMN! Isn't Pier 1 the best? I hope Heaven is a lot like Pier 1!

  3. Love this - the napkin rings, the pumpkins, the chargers and the stemware are all fantastic! What a great job you did with Kathleen's challenge. She will be thrilled!

  4. A great all white table with only one other color. I also went with white and orange.

  5. This is a striking table - I am loving all of that amber glass! Beautiful!

  6. Your amber and white is beautiful! Thanks for taking the challenge at Let's Dish!

  7. Lovely, lovely table - I, too, love all the gorgeous amber glass.

  8. All that amber glass is just beautiful! This is a great advertisement for Pier 1, because it really makes me want to head over there even though it's 10 pm! Thank you for sharing this gorgeous table!

  9. Amber is one of my favorite fall colors. I give you a gold star for this table!
