Halloween Tea Party

Ready, Set, a Halloween Table 
Not to scare you, but to entertain you.
A Halloween table of skeleton ladies and gents.
The centerpiece thrives on many skeletons large to small.
Come closer......
...closer, with dancing on the table to a skelie tune.
The scull teapot by Blue Sky Ceramic "Mortar and Bones"
Be wary of the spider coming out of the tea.
A touch of whimsy comes with the girl Anna Lee figure dressed as an orange skeleton.
Here the laughing boy Anna Lee dressed and ready for trick or treat.
Cream and sugar are arte nouveau as a beaded elegance surrounds them by silver and gold skulls.
A skeleton with crossed arms holds up a white candle tied with a black ribbon.
Come to the table, sit, and observe the splendor of skeletons.
You have a choice of plates from a gent with top hat with a girl in a ruffled dress.
The lady dressed in Victorian black attire walks her skelie dog. The gent tips his top hat in his tailored suit.
The farcical china is the creation of the Victorian Pottery Company of England. 
Adding detail with a skeleton print place mat, skull name tag holder, black and silver flatware, and double napkins held by a circular ring.

She skull glass tumbler is filled with skeleton candy, the he tumbler is topped by a ghost lollipop and a candy skeleton bracelet. 

A witches brew of hot tea in the mug or a iced sweet tea in the goblet is your choice....be brave.

The spooky skull chair covers are caught in a purple web.
A touch of Fall around fire place composed of scarecrows and pumpkins....

A Garden of Fruit

This time of year we are enjoying the fruits and vegetables of summer changing to fall. 
 We are in the solarium to enjoy the sunny days
we are having, the table is set with the beautiful  fruit.
 The center of the table has a yellow stand with a food tureen hosting a lovely fruit design with a fruit finial.
 The precious cream and sugar have a sweet entwined handle. 
The lid of the tureen has a close-up of an apple with ceramic leaves.   
 The overhead view of the place setting will entice you to sit in.
 We are blessed with a pattern by Spode called "Reynolds"
 The bread and butter support a green leaved bowl with a faux apple.
 The yellow polka flatware and napkin add pizzazz to the moss green placemats and napkin rings.
I will serve ice tea in the green beverage goblet with our meal for it is still warm in Texas and for dessert I will provide either hot tea or coffee with lemon meringue pie.
Hope you can enjoy another fall tablescape.

SUNFLOWER SEASON

As we transition from the heat of summer and go into the coolness of Fall, we can enjoy the beauty of the Sunflower.
 Sunflowers are everywhere along the roadways and in the fields for us to see them.
 The loveliness of the centerpiece has Sunflowers, cattails, wheat, and autumn leaves.
 Little Master scarecrow happly shares his fun with tiny crow and the sunflower bird.
 Little Miss scarecrow has sunflowers on her dress and in her hand, she shares her time with the cawing crow. Along with a bird perched on another sunflower.
 The centerpiece of flowers is in a verda colored metal pot, which not only holds the flowers but also the five creamy yellow candles.
 The sunflower bowl that accompanies the tableware by Maxcera.
 The lovely place setting called "Flowing Sunflowers".
 The flowers follow the sun from dawn till dusk.
 Holding the gold and white checked napkins is a tiny yellow beaded napkin ring. A country touch is brought by the yellow flatware.
 The elegant crystal is in balance with a ceramic mug.
 The crystal is Ralph Lauren's "Herringbone".
 While I was going through my yellow linens, I discovers this set of perfect placemats to go with the dinnerware.
This was a fun and enjoyable tablescape to design.

Catch A Sea Breeze

Lets walk along the beach, gather sea shells, and have a ride on a sail boat. 
Other pleasures along the shore are birds skittering about the sand and grasses blowing in the breeze.
The place setting is ready for a seafood feast. 
The blue and silver dinnerware has a ocean motif.
The swaying grasses along the shore is mimicked by the blue and white reeded placemats. 
Reed and Barton sea shell pattern echoes the shells on the dinnerware.
More blue and silver on the napkin and rings add a touch of elegance.
A wonderful fish in water on the pressed glass goblet creates more drama.
The adorable fish teapot will be used for hot tea along with dessert.
Birds along the shore are characterized by the blue glittered seagull.
Lets go sailing in our sailboat along the center of the table.
A purple shell is perched on the life guard seat.
The blue glass lantern lights the charming beach chairs.
Hope you have enjoyed our time at the beach.
