Practicing for luncheon...Number 3

Fall is just around the corner and I love those autumn the Number 3 tablescape looks forward to that wonderful season, with a more casual feel!  We are sticking to the same menu, though dessert might have some of the flavors of fall-maybe apples and cinnamon.

Gold, red, and white...and more a more casual setting-no table cloth either

The white plate for the onion mushroon tart, square plate for salad, and clear footed dish for shrimp cocktail...oops...I forgot to put out the cocktail forks  :-(
Another square plate on the upper left with a casual cup.  We'll have dessert and coffee...
A last look...hope you enjoyed it!
The dish on the dishes... 
  • The white plates are Royal Albert "Old English Garden".  This is a discontinued pattern but I found these on ebay
  • The square floral plate I found at T.J.Maxx for less than $2 each
  • The  flatware is my Reed & Barton "Rathmore"
  • Gold damask napkins are from Linens and Things several years ago
  • The white cups also from Linens and Things
  • Red placemats from Big  Lots (and I wish I had bought several more!!!)
  • Clear footed dishes from Walmart MANY years ago
  • The clear pitcher holding grocery store flowers has been with us so long, I can't remember its origins
  • The round placemat is from T.J. Maxx last year...there were only two...I wish there had been more!!
  • The beautiful Waterford Marquis crystal glasses are from Joanne (the best officemate ever!!!)
  • Napkin rings from Oneida
I still don't have a date for this luncheon and am not sure I am done testing tablescapes either...Thank you for stopping by...


  1. You've done such a nice job with all the tables. I think I like the color scheme here the best. Your glasses are so pretty.

  2. Oh, this is one of my favorite of all the tables you have those red dishes...I have some just like them.

  3. I love the autumn colors too. Can't wait for fall weather. Your lunch table looks really nice.Love the red and yellow!

  4. How very pretty! you table takes on the red hue in the photos! love square plates but so far have none.

  5. Tess, these fall colors really appeal to me, too! I am ready for cooler weather! Your table looks great, and the white plates really make your fall colors the star. Thanks for visiting my table this week!

  6. This just keeps getting better. I think that you'll use all of them. Thank you for sharing your charming designs. Cherry Kay
