Fall greetings from Long Island, where it is still pretty summery! I’ll take it as long as possible, the cold will come, it always does!
Tonight is the all white dish Fall table. ONLY ALL WHITE dishes can be used, no trim, borders, etc.
I know, it was hard. A few times I had something I was going to use, and then realized it didn’t comply!
Who made up these rules??? lol! But it is a CHALLENGE!
You could use one other color for your linens, utensils, glasses, etc. and charger. Of course, clear glass and regular silverware is allowed. Big of me! :)
I picked GOLD and these pierced edged white dishes from Portugal.
This week’s poem dedicated to all those who are Sweet…and Savory too!
The saga continues!
The Witches don’t like this table
It’s white and very mild,
You know they’re into MISCHIEF
And like things pretty wild!
Their tricks are not so darling
They turned Blogland’s icing BLUE,
They left those bakers SNARLING,
What a witchy thing to do!
Some think that they are funny
Quite persuasive, that’s for sure
But when you get to know them,
Enduring them’s a chore!
Oh, they’ll get their comeuppance
That old saying is quite true,
Only do to others
As you’d have done to you!
Some bloggers got together
They’re planning an attack,
So Witches do get ready
WE’RE GONNA PAY YOU BACK! :)
White Battenburg Placemat, .99 store I thought about a tablecloth…but decided I liked the contrast of the wood. Yippee, now I didn’t have to iron!
Gold charger, CTS last year
Gold flatware, Mace’s Place years ago, by Pfaltzgraff
White pierced dinner and salad from Portugal
White porcelain lidded pumpkin bowl, 1.99 CTS 5 years ago
White lace edged napkin, Horchow sale
Gold leaf napkin ring and leaf name holder, WSonoma Outlet a few years ago
I sprayed a Fall leaf garland gold…had the paint. Garland was from $ Tree . Used that as a wreath around the bowls.
Bonus, I now have gold fingernails! I sprayed those little $ Tree pumpkins gold too.
White butter domes from CTS last month.
Gold butter spreaders , gift from The Tablescaper
Gold trimmed etched stems from Pfaltzgraff outlet years ago. 1.96
Thin rippled water tumblers were my moms, so they are really old!
Centerpiece…gold mesh ribbon looped around a pierced compote filled with gold filigree spheres, mini white pumpkins and a gold candle, an extra gold leaf tucked in.
Leaf porcelain dishes filled with GOLD Dove candies.
My round breakfast nook table is oak and over 35 years old. It is solid, and we bought it unfinished and dh stained and poly’d it. He has refinished it few times. I have been known to give it a quick sanding and coat of poly when he is gone for the day if I feel the scratches are showing! Don’t tell him, he doesn’t trust me to do a good job!
It has a leaf, and dh made another to add in so we can fit 8 and a highchair, or 10 tight, if I use smaller chairs. I can fit 14 at my dining room, so between them both, we are set!
I know some of you don’t like Oak, but it is staying, and I would never paint it!
It has seen much use and abuse, 5 gkids banging toys on it, markering it, etc. It has heard lots of laughter, and tears, and good and bad news has been shared at it. So along with my solid brass, it will stay! :)
I must say, this WAS a challenge, fall colors kept wanting to creep in! And the plates I was originally going to use had a trim, so I had to change.
Thanks in advance to all those who took the challenge, and those who come to look and see what people did with it! So many creative bloggers out there!
Skillet O Rama PART 3
What’s in the pan this week??
Crispy hashbrown cheesy egg and Bacon Bake
I made hashbrowns and baked them till crisp in the pan. Added the eggs, cheese and bacon and returned to oven till all melty and crisp. You can see the crisp edge on the potato, yummy!
