There is something about an orange and green color combination this time of year. It really puts me in the mood for fall and the foods we love in the fall. How I love these soup tureens, large and small! I love the shape and the curved lines design. I decided to set a table without a tablecloth so the wood would show for once. It is usually covered up. Our dining room furniture was made by Stickley. The green place mats came from Pier 1, they have this place mat in many different colors and when they go on sale or clearance, they can be a really good buy.
I bought the pumpkin plates and soup tureens at Pier 1 several years ago and they are some of my favorite dishes.
They are a nice size for some hearty soup or a bowl of chili.
If you aren’t serving soup, the pumpkin plates are fun and really make a statement by themselves.
The dinner plate also came from Pier 1 several years ago. It was part of their Spice Route collection and the color was called Clove. I use this plate often in the fall. They still sell this plate in what they call Salt (off white), Sesame (beige) and Paprika (orange-red) and it comes in a square plate or round.
These rattan chargers were among some of the first tablescape items I bought several years ago. I think I bought them at World Market but if you google rattan charger you can find them several places.
The green plastic goblet came from Pier 1 several years ago. Can’t remember where I bought the amber glass goblets, if anyone recognizes the pattern, please let me know.
The flatware is Madeline Green flatware and I bought it at World Market some years ago. You can also see it in my Happy Fall tablescape. I use this flatware often this time of year.
I think the napkin rings came from Pier 1 several years ago. I bought the plaid napkins there or at HomeGoods. I wanted a bit more color and pattern on this table and these napkins work well with the greens and oranges.
I love these little pumpkin place card holders. I have had them for a while. They came from Crate and Barrel a few years ago.
The large pumpkin soup tureen and pumpkin platter provide an easy solution for the centerpiece for this table.
It’s fairly easy to find small salt and pepper sets. I have had these a long time, can’t remember where they came from.
Here are the same dishes in a table setting from five years ago with a very different feel. A busy tablecloth and a few other different pieces really make a difference. I think I like the setting from this year better.
Time to find some delicious soup recipes!
