A Fall Table with Metallics and Mikasa Alexandria Dinnerware


I’m at the table with a softer take on fall, with the shimmer of metallics and Mikasa Alexandria Dinnerware.


A new pattern exclusive to Mikasa, Alexandria provides a modern interpretation for dining with a neutral palette of bronze, beige and golden brown.


Golden leaves bring a subtle touch of nature to the table, surrounded by a crackled border of espresso brown, adorning the rim of the dinnerware for a mosaic effect.


I gathered some glass pumpkins, hurricanes, and votive holders in a varying metallic shades for a centerpiece.


 Bronze and silver mercury glass, along with amber and harvest gold in the stemware, add some shimmering color and a soft luster to the table.


 A jacquard tablecloth with a leaf pattern provides a little sheen and a neutral foundation for the table.


Gilded silver chargers frame the plates with a beaded edge to pair with beaded napkin rings and with the beaded edge of the napkins.


The hammered surface and beaded edge of Halston Flatware by Mikasa adds a faceted shimmer.



And amber luster leaf pumpkin hurricanes provide a soft warm glow with candles for the table.




Mikasa Alexandria is crafted of stoneware, featuring a reactive glaze. Each piece of the handcrafted collection exhibits variations in color and pattern and is microwave and dishwasher safe.

    Hi Mary, great job co-ordinating this beautiful table. Everything relates to one another so well. The dinnerware is lovely and is stunning on the perfect tablecloth. I can see this collaboration as the ideal Thanksgiving setting. A different take on the more traditional colors. Unexpected and quite classy!

    My first thought was what a beautiful tablecloth! Second thought was, I love the tones of metallics that give this table that zing of elegance.
    You have the knack for showcasing china patterns perfectly. I like this fall table.

  34. October 3, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    This is so pretty, Mary. I do love the tones of the plates. I like a quiet color palette and then the metallic just give it such a beautiful elegant feel. That flatware is beautiful too. Love your tablecloth!

    Lovely table, so inviting! The serving set, beautiful and practical, would be great for sharing my mom’s broccoli casserole. Broccoli spears, garlic, cheese and mushroom sauce and crushed croutons for a crispy top; it’s always a favorite on my family’s thanksgiving table.
