I’m at the table with pumpkins, mums, and Indian corn
in a celebration of Delicious Autumn and
Mikasa Belmont Red Dinnerware!
Gourmet Basics by Mikasa Belmont stoneware is available in a prism of colors~ blue, green, black, and red.
Plates are available in a round, traditional shape or a square shape for a more modern interpretation for dining.
Belmont Red leans towards a warm russet shade, ideal for a table to pair with the colors and textures of autumn; rustic woven placemats, colorful Indian corn and some fall foliage.
Fall is my favorite season and the inspiration for the table
came from one of my favorite quotes. . .
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
~ George Eliot
A favorite urn, with a bird relief and pair perched as handles, serve as a centerpiece for the table. I added a potted mum, some leaves from a maple and a dogwood tree and a bird’s nest.
The mum fits down in the urn with the leaves tucked in to fill in and add color & texture around the pot.
I tucked the bird’s nest in for some added interest.
It’s natural and quick & easy to create in 5 minutes
using foliage and a pot of flowers from the grocery store or garden center
and urn or vase of your choice.
Bird napkin rings marry a pair of napkins in shades of pumpkin and russet.
And a plaid fringed throw is layered over a brown matelasse coverlet,
both used here for a Delicious Autumn and Flavors of Fall Picnic!
