Normally, I think of gold when I am setting a table for Fall.
Last year, after Thanksgiving, I bought two mercury glass pumpkins on sale, and they made me think outside the box about this table.
In addition to the mercury glass pumpkins, I was inspired by my velvet pumpkins made my friend, Susie.
I am so fortunate to be one of the people that Susie gifts with these pumpkins.
Aren’t they gorgeous? I elevated them on a mirrored silver plateau that I ordered from an Etsy a couple of years ago.
The mercury glass pumpkins inspired me to use my square silver-colored chargers that I bought at Tuesday Morning about three years ago.
I got the etched glass bowls at an estate sale a couple of years ago. I previously posted this oh-so-simple recipe for Laurie’s Soup, which is what I served in these bowls.
These salad/dessert plates that I used as a server for the soup, came from One Kings Lane last year. I’m always looking for china with silver on it. (Wedgwood, Vera Wang’s Vera Lace)
Most rimmed china has a gold rim, but this dinner plate, which is the pattern we selected when we got married, has a silver rim. (Lenox Moonspun), and it is the reason I look for china with silver on it.
I used Eternally Yours flatware, because it is the only silverware set I have that has soup spoons in the set.
We also selected these water goblets (Lenox Moonspun) when we got married. The pineapple etched wine glasses were a wedding gift that came with a matching decanter.
I used silver monogramed napkin rings that I ordered from an Etsy last year.
I bought eight of these napkins at an estate sale one time. I paid $10.00 for all eight napkins.
I served dessert in silver champagne goblets that were another wedding gift. When I saw the simple recipe for Grilled Bananas Foster on the blog, Home Made Modern, I couldn’t wait to try it, and it didn’t disappoint.
I moved one of the dessert plates to the tabletop, so you could see the pattern. I also purchased these at an estate sale. I think I paid $10.00 for four of these, and I use them frequently.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. laurie
