Fall Dinner Party for Eight

As we all enjoy the Fall Season, I thought it would be fun to set the table for a Fall dinner party for eight. The party is in celebration of my son-in-laws birthday and the Fall decor is perfect for the party. I have used the burlap tablerunner and centerpieces in a previous post, (Burlap and Candlesticks on the Dining Room Table), but I haven't used it in a tablescape; so hope you enjoy this new post.

The dishes are from an old set that had belonged to my Mother.


 I have always admired the dishes and the Fall leaf design on them. The dishes are from Harmony House, West Wind pattern.





The flateware is 1847 Rogers Brother "The Colony" which had belonged to a great Aunt of my husbands. I had forgotten about it and found it in one of the drawers of my China cabinet. I polished it and was impressed how nice it still looked.





Thanks for visiting my Fall Dinner Party for Eight.

Beautiful tablescape! I love everything you incorporated from the burlap, to the mercury pumpkin, feathers, glass and Fall colors! I'm a big fan of mercury this year and used it as part of my dining room centerpiece, as well! Hope your celebratory dinner was/is fabulous! *Becca* (new follower by way of No Minimalist Here)

I also love fall diner parties, and recently attended fall themed dinner party at venues in Atlanta. My whole family was there to attend party and we enjoyed dinner. The tablescape ideas were just amazing and will use such decorating ideas in my home parties.
