Hi everyone! Well, it's sure been quite a while, hasn't it? Your consistently inconsistent blogger here is back, at least for a few posts. I hope you're all doing well and have happy, smiling faces! Here in Tulsa, we had a few beautiful days just cool enough to know that Fall weather is on its way, so I decided to set the table with some of my favorite dishes, Spode Byron.
This tablescape really began with some roses I picked up at our local Sams Club. I bought two bunches of them along with some carnations. The edges of the roses are tinged with an orangey - burgundy color and are so striking. I couldn't resist them. I love having fresh flowers in the house and being able to use them as props when taking pictures of items going in the shop....plus it's a good way to justify buying them ;-). Some of these pieces just came in and they look so pretty together with greens, browns and touches of burnt reds.
I set the table with a long, blanket scarf using the reversible Houndstooth side (several colors sold in my shop HERE) and opted not to use any placemats. I put the lighter colored roses in a biscuit barrel set on a handled plate.
Since these Spode plates have rural English life scenes on them, I thought a couple of my cow planters and a pair of peasants each carrying a basket of fruits and veggies would be pretty on the table.
The green marbled flatware is Barenthal Mabre'.
This is the dinner sized plate of Spode Byron. Each plate has a different scene on it and is trimmed with a trellis covered with grapes. I've got several pieces in stock HERE
Here is an evening shot with the candles lit, just before sitting down to eat in celebration of Michael's 29th birthday.
Until next time,
