Hi Laurie,
Your tablescape is just gorgeous. Love the Ascot plates (I used to have a few) and the centerpiece of pumpkins with fruit and nuts is beautiful. Love the peek into your living room too! You're inspiring me to get busy and create a fall tablescape. It's been a long time since I played with dishes! xo Delores

So Pretty !! It would be perfect like that for Thanksgiving. Don't think I have seen stems left that long on the pumpkins - I like them like that. I definitely need to get to the farmers' market in the next few days.
The onion soup sounds good.
Enjoy your evening.

This is such a pretty tablescape--I love your gorgeous dishes, and the beautiful soup cups, as well as all the colorful glassware--all so lovely!

Laurie your pieces are stunning. I adore the little bread plates and those bowls. What a stunning centerpiece too! It is nice to be back and doing tables again. I haven't done a table in over two months. (The break was nice too though!)

Yes, your pumpkins are fabulous...I love the stems!

I'm liking everything about this table from the centerpiece to the collection of dishes and glasses. This one can carry through all the way to thanksgiving.

Pretty harvest table, Laurie. I love the Ascot plates. I have some dinner plates and can never find salad plates, I don't think they made them. Love those long stemmed pumpkins!...Christine

Pat said...

As always I love your table, Laurie!

Those pumpkin stems are amazing indeed!

Mercy! This is a gorgeous table, and I have never seen such stems on a pumpkin!

I love the way you mixed up the colors of glassware, and the English plates are to die for!

Jewel Sauls said...

Love your table Laurie! Those pumpkins are amazing!!!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh, looking at your gorgeous tablescape again and the plates are to die for and they look awesome with those placemats. It's a perfect tablescpae, my kind of setting! Monday I will be reposting my total kitchen rebuilding, at Met. Monday, as everyone has asked me again, what's on the ceiling. We placed a stained glass skylight I designed, so than you'll see it, if you'd like. Thank you for dropping by pretty lady.

Your table is FABULOUS! I've been practically putting a magnifying glass to your photos! I love the gorgeous dishes, but I REALLY fell in love with your centerpiece. Autumn has settled at your table!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh I do love those pumpkins with their looooooong stems! Did you grow your own? Or go to the pumpkin patch...I've never seen any with such stems. What a pretty fall table you've set... perfect for soup on chilly autumn evenings.

Alycia Nichols said...

Heavens to Betsy with sugar on the side!!! Those stems are fabulous!!! I think if I went pumpkin picking I would want to try to keep the stems intact and long like that. They're WAY cool!!! They look terrific in the wooden box with all the other autumnal stuff! Lovely table, m'dear!

I've never seen pumpkins with such long stems! Wonderful harvest table.

Sarah said...

Laurie, this is a wonderful table for fall. Wonderful details.....yes, I love those pumpkin stems. Are those real? If so, save those stems and use them for velvet pumpkins later. ;-)

Debbie said...

I love the whole look of this, but my favorite part of all is the centerpiece and the pumpkins with the stems. That looks just plain wonderful. I'm so hoping to finally get back in my blog groove before fall is all gone. This week, I'm busy with both girls home so it's a good distraction!

Such an inviting table! Love your centerpiece!
