Tablescape Thursday

I have a new fall tablescape to share this week. Thanks to Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch, for hosting so we can share our fun addiction to tablescaping! Click on her name for lots more inspiration!
I'm using the Limoges salad plates a friend gave me with purple ruffled edge plates (from Walmart) I was concerned about the purple not photographing good, as so many times it looks black instead of purple.

I call this a harvest tablescape.

The centerpiece is a rustic tray (from TJ Maxx) displaying the orange Mercury glass pumpkin, beaded fruit, and purple candlesticks and candles on a purple scarf.

I was excited that my Green, purple, and orange goblets lended themselves well to this color scheme!

Four different fruit scenes adorn the salad plates. The one above has plums, the one below has apricots:

This one has yellow pears:


Which is your favorite plate?

I really like the orange and purple together!

I thought it would be fun to show the tablescape I did last year with these same salad plates.

Which is your favorite tablescape using the Limoges plates?

I hope you enjoyed my harvest tablescape!

God Bless!

Katherine, I just love the bold colors that the plates inspire. I am definitely in love with the pear one. Such pretty goblets and of course I love the purple ruffled plates, I ate on them tonight. I am so glad my sister told me about them last year when they were at Wal Mart

Gina said...

Very pretty tablescape! The colors are great. Your Limoges plates are beautiful & I love your goblets.

I get so caught up with the oranges and greens that I forget how absolutely perfect purple is for fall! It makes me think of bunches of grapes cascading over a basket.

This table is really lovely, and I love the salad plates.

Hi there, Katherine! The purple photographed perfectly!!! I can never get purple to photograph right. It always turns out looking either black or a weird blue. You did a great job!!! The Limoges plates are beautiful. They can go with so many different things...what a wonderful treasure!

I love this table, Katherine...beautiful. Those salad plates really showcase beautifully against the purple plates. Guess we share some of the same tastes...I have the same purple plates and stemware! Have a great rest of the week...

I love purple with orange/fall settings! I had a post a couple of weeks ago about how I acquired my eggplant color napkins that I had to have! Very pretty!

Limoges and Wal-Mart -- who'd a thunk it? Beautiful table. I like the purple scarf in your centerpiece. My favorite plate is the apricot.
