I incorporated Fall into the dining room this week by picking up this luscious bright orange from the linens to the centerpiece.

The tablecloth, made by Divine Designs (from One Kings Lane), features a rich tapestry of color and a vibrant pattern.

I chose bright orange gerbera daisies and red mokara orchids for the floral centerpiece.

The bouquet is flanked by pumpkin table accessories from Garden Cottage, Harding, NJ and crystal votive holders from Orrefors.

The napkin rings and these dreamy lightweight, silky wave napkins in bright orange are from Divine Designs on One Kings Lane.

For this place setting, I chose these elegant plates, made by G.L. Ashworth & Bros. of Hanley, Staffordshire, England, in the late 19th century. The pottery was founded in 1784 and became part of the Wedgwood Group in 1973. Ashworth made earthenware and ironstone. The printed mark on these plates date them around 1880. The pattern is called Persiana-featuring a bird flying towards a rustic table with intricately-patterned flowers and leaves.

The Waterford crystal stemware is from Think Twice Consignment (Gillette, NJ). The silver is Wallace Windsor Rose pattern (1948) and belonged to my husband’s grandmother.

Happy October!
