Athena Ironstone Fall Tablescape

This will most likely be my last FALL tablescape for the year. 
I must admit that I'm getting hooked on doing tablescapes though! 
They really are sooo much fun!

This tablescape was inspired by these ironstone dishes, the pattern is called Athena.  They are still available at Pier One Imports
The Ironstone centerpiece vase with the little cutouts in it came from "Target".
I'm not sure if it's still available or not.

The berries and greenery in the vase came from a bush in my backyard! 
Don't ask what kind of bush... cuz I don't have a clue what it's called lol!
But it sure has gorgeous orangey colored berries on it this time of year,
and they go excellently with these orange napkins from Kohl's!

Most of the other items are T/S finds of course! 
Including the this wonderful runner and leaf patterned tablecloth.


The beautiful sage green placemats were a gift from my blogging friend Cathy!

I was so excited about finding these beautiful vintage amber colored stemware! 
They are a perfect compliment to the amber tone in the dishware and tablecloth.
This is the dinner plate.
The gold chargers were a gift from several years ago.
I love this yummy smelling mosiac glass candle I bought last year at Kohls,
I do believe they also had them this year as well!
I also love this very cool ELIXER amber glass vintage bottle I found while
treasure hunting!
Of course you know I had to include a Rooster... 
This cute ironstone tureen was another T/S treasure!
One last look! 
Oh, I almost forgot about mentioning the cute little Sun shaped frame
I used as a trivet, I thought it went well with the Star shaped chargers and
added a bit of a Celestial feeling

The cute little ironstone dish and cutout votive holder when put together 
 kinda look like a flower don't they?!

Girlfriend, I have really enjoyed all of your beautiful autumn tables!!! The table that you are sharing with us today is gorgeous! Of course, you know how I love all the rich, warm colors! I love all of your table linens...they really are sooo perfect for the season! Ohh...and your new salad/dessert plates are soo pretty! They just "pop" against the the warm colored table linens! You did a beautiful job with the centerpiece! You know, I think that the orangey colored berries are Bittersweet...hmmm, I think! Whatever they are...they're perfect!!! I just love pretty berry stems and garlands! Thank you sooo much for sharing your gorgeous table with us, my friend!

I just read the sweet note that you left for me! Thank you so much for coming by and thank you for all the kind words...you just make my heart smile, sweet friend!!!

It is so lovely Sherri. The ironstone is amazing and really makes a beautiful table. You do tablescapes so well. I really am lousy at it, so it really inspires me.
I will be thinking of you while I am leafing through my own issue of Victoria.
hugs to you...

Hello Sherri,
your plates really have an outstanding decor. I would have bought them also if I could. And you made a fantastic tablescape with them. I love the placemat and the golden star. Just exactly the matching colors and perfect with the rusty red of the napkins. And I love this gogeous centerpiece with all this pretty berries. Great tablescape, very festive. I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Greetings, Johanna

Wha a pretty table! You have captured that lovely autumn feel with the gorgeous colors. Each detail is lovely.

Mimi said...

Sherri, your table is lovely...the amber glassware goes so nicely with those gorgeous salad plates.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

What an absolutely perfect table setting you have created just in time for the holidays. I just love all of the different textures. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Alycia Nichols said...

I have never, ever, ever seen star-shaped chargers. They are so cool!!! Your sun-shaped frame goes along perfectly with them!

Marlis said...

Love your table.. this is really exquisite. I lounged with Victoria last weekend!!

Sue said...

Sherri, You are just going to town on all your tablescapes! I've seen that plate pattern at Pier 1 and liked the Tuscan look a lot. Those amber colored glasses are very pretty and add that extra pop of color on the table. And of course, I have to say that we both have the same chicken tureen! Mine has been around for 20+ years and he gets pulled out of the pantry to grace the table every so often... Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and get to be with your loved ones. hugs, Sue

Wonderful warm colors and the berries from your yard are such a wonderful treasure. Love the green placemats and the layered table linens. The starburst chargers are pretty cool, too! Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

Hi Sherri...first of all..thank you for your warm and encouraging comment! Things have already take a turn ..hopefully for the better this morning. At least Thanksgiving is looking better and I am not so depressed.

The berries on your table look like the ones in my back yard. Mine come from Heavenly Bamboo bushes lining my fence. I am not sure..but they do look the same.

Your tablescape is wonderful. It reflects your warm and caring nature...I love it! The dishes...the different fruits and berries..all of it.
HUGS!

Love the dishes with the blue. It's a nice way to cool down all those warm fall colors a bit. Hmm... blue, white, stars, celestial? Would it be stretching it to say, Have a Heavenly Thanksgiving!? I bet you've got some heavenly recipe's that include almonds!
Do have a great Thanksgiving, and stay warm, the seasons have definately changed now!

Happy Thanksgiving Sherri!
Your table is so pretty and festive. I really like the Pier One dishes and I recognise those placemats too. Yesterday afternoon I cooked a turkey and the fixings and we've been eating on the go. I knew we couldn't have a sit down meal, but that just fine with me.
I slept in Heather's room last night and when I woke up she looked so good. Her cheeks were pink and rosy like before her illness took hold. She can come home once she is switched over to oral pain meds.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think things would turn out so good. Take care my friend and wishing you and your family well.
Hugs, Cathy

Barb, I just tried to come by and visit your blog and got a message that you had to be invited to view your blog now, and your post title was "Saying Goodbye"...
I havent been blogging due to a death in the family. Now I feel like I've just had another one!! I hope you'll please e-mail me, and I hope everything is okay with you.

Love, Sherri
