Simply Elegant Fall Tablescape

My theme for this simply elegant fall tablescape is Ivory and Gold.....

I bought this set of dishes at the auction   ($7)...no one else would bid on them....
Why?  because the cups and saucers were missing.    That didn't matter to me as I knew some gold cups and saucers would look great with them.

The dishes were made by the Syracuse China Co....and the pattern name is Brantley.   The set includes 6 dinner plates,   6 dessert plates,   6  bread plates,   a large serving platter,  gravy boat,  cream & sugar,  1 large serving bowl,  2 smaller oval serving bowls and gold salt and pepper shakers.
The center piece is simple.....white ironstone pitcher filled with a  cluster of fruit.....
The cups and saucers that I used are part of this tea set that belonged to my mother....

Simple .....elegant....tablescape for fall!

  13. I wished there were auctions around here (Orange County, CA); they have estate sales, and the prices are ridiculous compared to what you get when you can bid! Auctions would be so much more fun! Love the gold/white dishes. They look very pretty and elegant.

  14. Hi Penny: I truly thought I had visited you, but I do not see a comment. I love the tea cups your Mother gave you. I think this is the second time you have shared them. They are stunning. Dishes are back either :) They are beautiful. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha
