We still have a few blooms going on the south side of the house. They bring a little unexpected color to the table I had planned.
I've had this vintage tablecloth tucked away for a long time because I've been telling myself I was going to sew something from it. But it's perfect for the season, so I'm going to mend my ways instead.
I like the way the print surrounds the dishes on the table, and the subtle color of the leaves and vines.
My newish napkins coordinate nicely.
The silverplate soup spoons are also vintage, as is the stemware. (That's a vintage ceramic electric insulator you see being used as a candlestick. The only white one I have ever seen.)
The main colors have faded from the cloth and given it a wonderfully aged look.
I love the look of ironstone on display, but I love using it on the table even more. All the men especially like the heft. Here I am using a small platter as an underplate for vintage soup bowls.
One of my new finds is a set of porcelain leaf relish/butter-sized accent plates. I love the repetition of the motif.
I keep saying how soft these napkins from Pottery Barn are, but I'm sure I'm going to wear these out in no time, I love them so much.
The flowers and one simple candle sort of dress things up, but this is just a homey fall supper table for two. . . .
Gotta go! Soup's on!
Ciao! for now!
