Cozy up to the Bar































I just love the Fall season... decorating the table with berries and

pumpkins!!








I have some red and white dishes that I bought at the Charlotte Antique Mart... the vendor said that they came from a convent... it has leaves running around the perimeter. I paired it with my italian handpainted plates with fruit for an interesting mix...












Sometimes we eat on the 'breakfast bar", for a change of scenery...












This plate is "Home Sweet Home" An American Subject . Currier and Ives....






So much fun to play around with different little fall accents...







I made the napkins from dish towels and the white linnen ones with the peek-a-boo battenburg lace came from an antique store.



Have fun with your dishes and whip up some inspiring tablescapes!




You will be sorry if you don't click right "ovah" to the hostess with the mostess...our very own Miss Tablescape, Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch and check out other lovely tablescape posts!

Love the setup on the bar and the combination of plates. I love knowing the plates came from a convent. Don't you wish they could talk? The napkins almost look like a turkey fan!

I LOVE that pop of blue color in your tablescape! I would truly enjoy sitting at the counter & eating a meal in this setting. Your kitchen is beautiful as is your arrangement on the island, too.

Very nicely done!

You have the nicest kitchen! Love the roosters. I'm kicking myself for not buying a similar sunflower pitcher. Like your dishes too! Thanks for stopping by earlier. I always enjoy Santa's visits! ;O)

Dining Delight said...

Just love your kitchen, the colours are right up my alley! How nice that you dress up your bar area for meals there...so often, it is just easier to "throw" out a plate and not bother with the chargers, stemware, napkins, etc. Your decor looks fantastic!

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Your kitchen is beautiful! I love the cabinets!!! Did you paint them & do you know what color they are??? We're on the fence about painting our 1980's oak cabinets or replacing them...

Your tablescape is beautiful. Love the napkins & all the pumpkins! ☺
