Welcome to Tablescape Thursday ~
This week I'd like to invite you to a VERY small luncheon table for two ~
So cozy on a blustery Autumn day.
The weather can rip outside, but we're here by the bright windows, while the comfy fire nearby will keep us snug.
Our table this week is actually a butler's service tray which rests upon folding legs. I've turned the tray upside down to make it more comfortable for dining.
It was a purchase a long time ago from Bombay & Co.
How I miss that store!
I realize we're very close to Thanksgiving here in the US, but sometimes just a touch of Fall colors are enough for me ~ and I long once again for GREEN.
That's probably why I chose to live in the wooded forest...
the cool, refreshing colors are easy on the eyes and instantly calm me.
The dishes are "Ma Maison" from Tabletops Unlimited ~
and retired quite some time ago.
No matter what the season we enjoy fresh greens ~
The little salad bubble bowl are from Wally world. :)
In warmer months I can picture serving cool tropical drinks, gazpacho, or chilled desserts in them.
This time the salad is a baby mix with cranberries and almonds served with a Cranberry vinaigrette dressing.
The chargers are those than many of us have ... and the napkin rings are available at Williams-Sonoma, and a few other places.
A close up of the hand painted bowl... I love this shape as it serves dual purposes as both a bowl and is also a perfect salad/dessert piece.
And detail of the dinner plate.
I'm not sure of the manufacturer of the water glasses, but I know they are French ~ I picked them up last summer at Tyler Florence's store in Mill Valley (Northern CA.)
The ivory handled flatware is from the French company Comptoir de Famille.
The Cranberry Vinaigrette in one of the pair of cruets I received as a gift several years ago.
The hydrangeas are long gone from the garden this year ~
these are fakes plunked into the matching creamer to the Ma Maison set.
Napkins are from Sur la Table, and tiny pumpkins courtesy of Ma Nature. :D
Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends.
I'm joining Susan for Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
Thank you for hosting us, Susan!
