Fall Tablescape

I brought this gorgeous set of dishes home with me from the auction Saturday and couldn't wait to do a tablescape with them!
There were several serving pieces in the is the covered vegetable dish and a large serving platter....
Before I show you the rest of the dishes,   I wanted you to see this pretty grey pumpkin that I got at the "patch".   I really like all the different colors of pumpkins you can purchase now.
OK....back to the dishes!    I got a service for 8......6 pieces in each place setting.....made in Japan by Harmony House....and the pattern is called Wembley
On the left is the photo of the dishes when they were at the auction.   On the right is the photo of the dishes safe at home!
I was doing a happy dance when I got the bid at $40.
I also got the bid on some pretty silverware.     They are made by Sheffield,  but I couldn't ever find the pattern name.    
I have the additional pieces of china and silverware displayed on the pass thru between the kitchen and dining/family room....
I got a setting  for 6 plus all these serving pieces.

Since it's the first day of October,   I added a touch of Halloween to my tablescape.      Did you spot the crocheted "web" on the pumpkin,   or  the spider in the sugar bowl?     It's time to get the spooky stuff!

  13. Hi, Penny! You really got a great buy on the dishes! $40 is a small price to pay for such beauty! That's less than $1 per piece!!!!!!! Oh, got some serving pieces with it, too, right? So that's even LESS!!! Wow! You really had cause to do the Happy Dance!!! The silverware is gorgeous, too. I really like the initial on the handle.

    Enjoy your new treasures, and Happy Fall!

  14. Penny,
    OMG!! These dishes are drop dead gorgeous!! Stunning!!


  15. That's one classy spider in the sugar bowl. This is probably strange, but I love the slender tines on the forks. My rule is a good fork must have pretty tines. Thank you for sharing at Make It Monday.
