Indian Summer just might be the perfect season...warm days, cool nights and lots and lots of color. Makes me want to set an equally lovely table for Fall.

I fell in love with these gorgeous dishes years ago at Bloomingdale's.  The pattern is Constellation by Joseph Abboud.  Full of texture, with earthy brown rims...

and shiny golden centers, these plates always make a grand entrance in October. They are just colorful enough to mix and match with all sorts of linens and accessories.

I particularly like layering them with these woven placemats, all set atop a rich brown linen tablecloth.  

The rustic glassware is called South Beach, also by Joseph Abboud.  

My very versatile candle centerpiece this time holds shiny gold tea lights.   

This table runner is actually a fabulous silk scarf from J. Jill!  Yes, tabletop decor is sold everywhere.  I love how the embroidered flowers pull out the colors of my patterned napkins from Crate & Barrel.

For a final touch, I've woven a garland of tiny orange and gold berries through it all.  Enjoy.  Don't forget to follow me and my fellow tablescapers each Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.


  1. Oh my, this is simply dreamy. I loved it.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Much love.

  2. No wonder you fell in love with the dishes. They're terrific as is the whole table!

  3. I definitely love those dishes. I'm not familiar with the designer (glad to know his name since I'm a dishaholic), but I am just wild over them! Nice job with this tablescape.

    Happy Tablescape Thursday to you...

  4. My husband would ♥♥♥ those fabulous dishes...he prefers deep dinner plates, he calls them manly plates! Gorgeous tablesetting.
