New York Sophisticated Autumn Tablescape

As promised, Pat didn't use orange and green this week as the central color for the tablescape. She selected a fun accent plate from Pier 1 a few years ago and set the table in a more formal, upscale style in gray, black, and white. 
To avoid too much Autumn color, Pat kept the centerpiece simple

Flatware is glossy, modern "Faience" by Oneida
The New York skyline in the background sets off the park bench holding a group of cute dogs and their dog walker.
The dinner plate is "Fun Factory" by Waechtersbach
The charger is "Faience" by Christofle

The etched whirl goblets always reminds us of wind
OK, close to orange, but the centerpiece is more rust and gold in color

From the other end of the table

Where it came from:
Charger - "Faience Gray" by Christopfle from eBay

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


  1. I love those "New York" accent plates, and this is a great autumn table without going over the top in orange.

  2. I remember when Pier One carried those salad plates. They are darling, especially if you are a dog lover. I always enjoy what you two do!

    1. Me too. Sure miss Pier 1 since 2019 ours all closed. Online shopping just no way the same.

  3. Yay for table scatter and here's hoping it never goes out of style. Keep scattering my friends setting the table!! Cute fall leaves to go with the accent plates. Yay!!!!
