Autumn Table - summer is slipping away

Although the calendar says it's fall, we are still having very warm days. My husband said he read that today may be our last of these hot days. 

Even though it is warm, we are enjoying our deck and I have set a table that is reflective of an autumn table.

 I love putting the blue, rust and orange stack of plates and bowl together. 

The bowl is calico blue by Churchill.

The lidded pumpkin jar simply says made in China but is a great knockoff of the Churchill bowl. I hadn't thought that it was a pumpkin until I designed the table and saw it had indented ridges running up and down plus the stem just like a pumpkin. 

The dark orange pumpkin plate is by Pottery Barn. The bright sun is certainly filtering through the birch trees creating interesting shadows on the table. 

You have seen the blue water goblets around blogland for years; they add such a pretty punch of color to accompany the calico blues.

Also in the stack is a cobalt blue Fiestaware salad plate and a rust color dinner plate by Norfolk. 

The napkins are navy blue Hemstitch from Pier 1 and the napkin ring is also Pier 1. The flatware is by Oneida.

I bet you have already notice the square cloth for the table.  It is an oversized napkin by Ridgefield Home and made in India. It has such a beautiful design and edge. 

Thanks for stopping by for another day of Life in Kentucky -  Judy.

  1. Hello, pretty table setting and dishes. Your table is in a pretty spot. The little pumpkins are cute. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  2. How nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors. It is just too hot here. Love your Autumn table-scape with the pumpkins, orange, and blue and white. A great start to Autumn! Happy Monday!

  3. Hi Judy, how appealing this setting is, the Pottery Barn plate looks like a 3D pumpkin! I adore the mix of rust and blue ceramics just perfect for an Autumn dinner a deux.
    Happy Mosaic Monday.

  4. I love the colors of this tablescape.

  5. Blue is my favorite color and one I don't think of to go with Fall colors. But it looks beautiful...classically beautiful! Hugs!

  6. Great colour combination and with terrific pieces! I really like that large "pumpkin" plate and it is so striking with the blue dishes.

  7. I just love those blue and white transferware dishes. My favorite! And they go so well with your pumpkin coloured plates. A wonderful tablesetting for fall.

  8. Judy, I love the blue and orange/rust. The Blue Calico is wonderful. The pumpkin plate is lovely. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

  9. Absolutely beautiful, love those colors! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Dishing It & Digging It!

  10. This gorgeous Judy! I've gotten to be a big fan of blue and white for fall, and your Calico bowl is fabulous, I can't believe you found a ginger jar to match it so perfectly, stunning with the pumpkin oranges, and so pretty set outdoors-

  11. Wow Judy, this table is gorgeous. I love the blue and white dishes. Your attention to detail is lovely. How fun to be a guest and be able to enjoy this lovely table. Thanks for sharing at DI&DI. Have a great weekend ahead.

  12. Oh I love the calico blue with the orange! I had my hands on the pumpkin plates last week when I got to visit a PB store but there was no sale so I backed off. I do like them though- the color is just right! I like those napkins paired with the sunflower napkin rings (I have those too). The blue stemware is just the right addition too!

  13. Very attractive table settings with a blue theme that reminds me of clear autumn skies.

  14. What a beautiful combination with the blue and orange. I love what Kenneth said - it truly does remind me of a beautiful autumn day with the blue sky and the colors in the trees!

  15. It's a beautiful fall tablescape Judy! I love the combination of blue and orange and the blue pumpkin is so unique! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
