Mixed Metals...

Since my dining room has been "under construction"
 
I haven't done a tablescape
in a very very long time...
 

I thought it was about time to dust the dishes off...
 




 
these new plates
 were a summer garage sale find...
 
the gold rim
 makes them hard for me to think about using
 in any season except fall...
 


the garden bouquets are getting smaller...
 
these precious blooms are tucked
 into silver salt and pepper shakers...
 
I think the gold tones in the tarnished silver
mix well with the gold rim of the plates...
 





a silver platter and a gold rimmed china platter
pair up for the base of my centerpiece...
 



 
a potpourri of roses,
 fresh and dry
mixed with local acorns...

 
soft fall light...
 


candlelight...
 


 
fall roses...
 
Tonight I am joining...
a New Party Hosted by Sandi at The Rose Chinz Cottage
and
 
Thanks for stopping by....
