Hello sweet friends !
Most of you know I had my two daughters and three grandgirls, who live away from us, one in the other side of the pond in Spain and the other three hours drive from us.
What I wanted to explain was that while I was shopping for Baby Shower stuff for my daughter Sofia's, I also ran across this gorgeous, inexpensive dinnerware, in an 'Autumnal-botanic' pattern I loved immediately and of course, I couldn't help but get it and take it home with me to join my dish collection, lol..
Therefore, I used it in the table settings when our girls, grands and SILs were here to sort of feel like an early, (at heart) 'Thanksgiving' because we were 'all together' for a change and it was such a blessing for Alejandro and me.
I arranged the flower centerpiece on my "Dutch-Imari," hand decorated bowl because of all the orange hues and I thought it blended beautifully with my new Fall china.
With that said...here is my 'Thanksgiving at Heart' table setting !
|I never had a 'real' china for the 'Autumnal season' and we loved this ceramic one I ran into while shopping for the Baby shower. |
Not expensive either... at all !
In the back it says, 'HomeLife.'
|It even has little acorns and a butterfly !|
|I'm so happy we were eight just perfect for this setting.|
|I used my pure Egyptian cotton linen and open hand work tablecloth hubby gifted me so many years ago. I love the contrast of the oranges in the dishes against the crispy white.|
|As you can see, here is my first Fall in the dining room. I need to do the other buffet in the formal dining room, as a table setting comes and goes.|
|It's very difficult to take pics of my plate rack, as it is behind the two doors leading to and out of the kitchen. The fridge is in front, so it makes it practically impossible to take a 'complete' front shot of it !|
|I decided to use the new Fall china on an everyday basis till after Thanksgiving in November. |
I could pair it sometimes with my orange rim dinner plates, as you see here.
