The End of Summer

Remember all those dishes I found at the Goodwill a couple of weeks ago? Well, here is an end of Summer tablescape
incorporating my new finds with some old favorites.

 I started with this tray that my darling husband brought home from New Zealand for me
 many, many years ago.

 I added this charming hen casserole dish, some wooden candlesticks, and a 
bouquet of sunflowers that same darling husband recently brought back from Seattle.They dried quite nicely!

 Here are those awesome wooden chargers I found for $1.50 each at the thrift store.Next I layered the Adams Empress dinner plates and an Arabia  bread and butter plate. The brown linen napkins belonged to my grandmother Emily. All are set on table runner I made out of leftover drapery fabric.

 These beautiful goblets are made by Lenox. The pattern is Antique Brown. I received them as a wedding gift.

 A few random pitchers and crocks give great texture to the table and are great for serving sauces or gravy.

And now aren't you ready for the days to get a little shorter and the nights a little cooler?
