September Sunflower Tablescape

Heading into Autumn sunflowers are perfect for decorating any table. Pat set this week's table using our sunflower ironstone dinnerware ("Sunflower Blooms") that we got at Pier 1 five or six years ago.
Pat started with one of her favorite table design tricks - she used a green and a gold placemat set slightly off from each other so that a little color shows around the edge

Flatware is "French Rooster" by Cuisinart
The napkin rings are handmade to coordinate with the plates - PVC pipe cut into 1" rounds and then spray painted with plastic adhesive paint topped with a large silk sunflower hot glued in place

Green glasses are from the Dollar Tree

The large white pitcher is from Target years ago. We found the "curious" rooster at a thrift shop.

  1. I do love sunflowers, and they are such a nice transition from summer into early fall. I have them (faux ones) on my table this month, too.

  2. Nice seeing rooster flatware!! I have a set too. Men love it, ladies, for both it's form and function, just an FYI. Lovely table!
