Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! I hope that you are having a wonderful week, and enjoying this beautiful Autumn season. Those of you who are in the path of Hurricane Matthew, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
In the future weeks, I will be doing a tablescape series featuring Fall themed tablescapes. I hope to give you ideas for your Fall entertaining and Thanksgiving tables. Today’s tablescape features one of my favorite patterns, Johnson Brothers Friendly Village. I have always loved the pattern, and a few years ago my parents gave me the set as a Christmas gift. This china is perfect to use during both the Fall and Winter seasons.
For the underpinning of the tablescape, I chose a gold toned brocade tablecloth.
The place setting is anchored with gold charger plates. For the plate stack, I chose to mix the Johnson Brothers Friendly Village with my Mikasa English Countryside plates.
Below is a close up of the bowls. I love the scene of the sweet cottage and apple trees.
For the tea cups, I chose to use some antique Limoges cups.
The crystal is Golden Tiara by Mikasa.
A Fall floral arrangement flanked by gold mercury glass candle holders complete the centerpiece of the tablescape.
Fall berries and burnt russet colored candles were placed upon the candle holders.
Thank you so much for joining me for Tablescape Thursday! I hope that you have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend!!!

I love the scenery dishes. I had a set all picked out at an antique store but they were missing some pieces I really wanted so I passed them up but I get a twang of pain when I see yours and how beautiful they make the table. Lovely~
