Pheasants by the Fireside...Part II

*
*
*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
A couple of days ago, I shared a few photos of an autumn table that I set in my living
 room for Marty's Table Top Tuesday party.  Today, I thought I would share the rest of
 the photos with you.  I hope that you enjoy!

Part II
*
*
Here we are...with a warm and cozy table set for two...in front of the fireplace in my living room.
*
Okay...I must admit...my fireplace is not real...it's a faux fireplace! Sorry, but we'll just
have to dream about a warm fire warming us as we dine. Warm fire...or not...an autumn
table set by the fireplace still makes for a sweet dining experience!
*
This is the fireplace mantel all dressed up for autumn. It makes a beautiful backdrop
for my cozy, autumn table for two.
*
*
I brought in a small round table just for this autumn dinner for two.  The two
 burgandy chairs usually flank either side of the fireplace...they'll make perfect seating.
*

The Table Linens
*
Layers and layers of rich autumn fabric cover the table. The first layer is a long cream
colored damask fabric that puddles over onto the floor. Next...a shorter, dark brown table
cloth with autumn colored embroidered threads...that give it a "plaid-like" appearance.
The top layer and finishing touch...a cream colored tapestry table runner with long
gold fringe on either end.
*
Two dinner napkins are layered on top of one another as well. An olive green and
khaki checked napkin serves as the bottom layer...an embroidered "goldenrod"
colored napkin sits on top.
*
*

The Table Centerpiece
*
Since the table is small, I kept the centerpiece simple. A tall olive green and bronze
candleholder with an "earthy" brown pillar serves as the focal point of the centerpiece.
An autumn pheasant joins the mix...along with a few sprigs of autumn florals.

The Place Setting
*
"Brookshire" by Johnson Bros.
*
I am using Johnson Bros. "Brookshire" china for the place setting. The Brookshire
pattern works beautifully for an autumn table. A band of dark green can be found on
each piece of the place setting...and different types of birds...such as ducks,
geese, pheasants, and feathers...decorate the rims.
*
The Place Setting...
*
A brown charger plate with embossed autumn leaves (Walmart)
Brookshire dinner plate,
salad plate,
bread plate,
bowl,
and a Brookshire cup and saucer completes the place setting.
*
Bamboo handled flatware, a new purchase, is making their debut on this autumn table today!
*
*
An autumn pear in the Brookshire bowl...at each place setting.
*
*
I love the pheasants on the Brookshire cup!
*
*
A single amber colored stem for the beverage.
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*Voila...there you have it!  "Pheasants by the Fireside"...an autumn table for two!
*
I hope that you enjoyed!

Beautiful table setting Chari! I love the richness and warmth of the colors. I'd have a faux fireplace in every room of my house. They just make so much more cozy in my opinion

Hope you are well.

You, dear sweet lady, are such a genius at glorious decor! The table setting is so lovely and inviting! Don't let that pheasant eat the pear! ;) I would love to have a meal at one of your gorgeous tables!

Hi Chari,
What a gorgeous table by the fireside I love the pheasants, I had my heart set on finding some after I saw the last table setting with a pheasant on it. I couldn't find one though, so I will just love yours.
Your dinner ware is beautiful, I love them, too.
Love and hugs, Cindy
