Fall with Vera

I haven't been able to post since my internet provider has upgraded I can no longer upload pictures and my mom, dog and now me have been ill.  I have been wanting to post this table for a couple of weeks. I think.... I have lost track of time.

Every season is the season to have friends over. We were so happy when my friend agreed to come over. Of course, I had to set a nice table for her.  I used the Vera linens that I found on clearance last year at Macy's. I do have to admit that up until I found this runner and napkins, I didn't care too much for the Fiesta color in Cinnabar. Now I wish I had more.  LOL. I made chicken tacos and Spanish rice. I waited to make the rice until my friend came over so she can try to make it for her family. It was fun as she was taking pictures and taking notes. Sometimes when she asked why I did what I did my response was: "because that is the way my mom did it". We would crack up because she does somethings just the way her mom tells her to.

My friend has influenced my fall decorating. It is "our" holiday. We keep buying things for each other. It was her and all you wonderful bloggers that got me addicted to decorating for fall.
The Fiesta colors are in Cinnabar, White, Chocolate, Sunflower, Persimmon, Yellow and Paprika. 

I used my Franciscan bowl to hold the flowers.

I've used the same napkin rings, glasses and salad bowl from my first fall table.

Thanks for stopping by. I am linking up with the The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Be sure to stop by all the other blogs to see what they are doing this season.


  1. Love your runner and napkins. You have set a very attractive table. I like your fiesta ware and I agree great fall colors. Sounds and looks like you enjoyed great food with your special friend. Glad you were able to get past some difficulties and post this tablescape. Thanks.

  2. Love your runner and napkins, they look great with the Fiesta-enjoy:@)

  3. Monica! What a lovely setting, and a delightful story to go with it! I really had to chuckle because there are things I do purely because that's the way my mom said to do it! I really enjoy seeing "our" dishes in use!

  4. I hope you're all feeling better, Monica. The Vera linens look super, and yes, the right cloth can make you feel differently about any Fiesta color!

  5. Thank you all for visiting and leaving a comment. Things are better all the way around. Thank you. These dishes do make me happy.


I would love to hear what you think of my dishes. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you come back to visit again soon.
