Autumn Tablescape

Autumn is upon us and the weather is turning cold. Pat always sets a table this time of year using her "Mallard Quintessential Game" dinnerware by Queen's - many in  her husband's family are avid duck hunters (much to my vegetarian heart's chagrin) and enjoy using these dishes for shared family meals. Since I store them at my house, and Covid-19 is preventing family gatherings, Pat decided to use them for this week's tablescape. 
Napkins are placed under the setting so that the dinnerware shows up
Pat used two chargers - the extra larger wicker ones came from Costco years ago

Flatware is "Vault" by Gourmet Settings

The first charger is a "Sage" Fiesta(ware) chop plate
I can't believe how well these chargers have held up - they were really inexpensive

Glassware is "Lawrence" in olive green from Pier 1. They carried the same pattern in amber, also.
Pat used Fall greenery and picks for the centerpiece.

One last look from the other end of the table

Where it came from:
Wicker Chargers - from Costco years ago
Charger and Matching Bread/Butter Plate - "Sage" Fiesta(ware) Chop Plate by Homer Laughlin from
Dinnerware - "Quintessential Game" by Queen's from Tuesday Morning several years ago
Flatware - "Vault" by Gourmet Settings from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Glassware - "Lawrence" from Pier 1 seven years ago
Mocha Colored Luncheon Napkins - from TJMaxx two or three years ago
Olive Green Glass Candle Holders - from Pier 1 many years ago
Candles - from Michael's last year
Brown Vase - Inexpensive glass vase spray painted with glass adhesive spray paint

This week, we will be joining "Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch: 


  1. Oh, that transferware is lovely and just perfect for a fall table!

  2. WOW. What a beautiful tablescape for Thanksgiving!!!!! It gives such a lovely feel of calm and mood. I really love your use of green, too. It's really stunning! Well done!

  3. I love this table. I don't have anything green, but this is so peaceful that it makes me wish I did. I find that I really like transferware patterns lately, too. So many colors to 'pick up' and accent with napkins, etc. My late sister-in-law loved and collected green glass and this brought back memories of a few holiday dinners in her home years ago. When she passed away, my brother did not wish to maintain all of her many collectibles and so items were distributed among family and friends. I have not seen her lovely green glasses and goblets for many years. I hope that we may all enjoy lovely Thanksgiving celebrations with pretty tables, even if our groups are a bit smaller than usual!
