Won't you join me for an autumn dinner?
This table is set with some of my favorite china and fall colors.
I have done tables before with these over 100 year old flow blue dishes
but I love them with the rusts and oranges of autumn.
The table runner is a quilted piece I bought a few years ago.
The placemats and napkins are hand loomed by auTerroir Inc
of Ste-Madeline, Quebec and are from 1978.
These footed dessert bowls came from my grandmother's.
I used a mix of vintage tableware and antique carving knife and a bone or horn spoon.
The end of the horn spoon is silver (I should have polished it first) and is
stamped Hatheway 1675. I don't know if it's that old or if that's the company trademark.
Does anyone know what this is really made of? The carving knife has a horn handle
with a silver plug on the end but no markings on it.
The gold pitcher with black roses is Elijah Cotton - Lord Nelson Ware.
The salt and pepper shakers have the initial "D" on them. They were my
great aunt and uncle's.

I thought the orange pumpkins and faux orange marigolds really made the table
pop with the rusty/black woven placemats and the cobalt blue china.
