I envisioned a primitive table with lots of pewter for that early American look, but I have no pewter pieces! So I remembered the 1997 issue of Country Living that inspired my dining table...
...and found an add for none other than...Pfaltzgraff Heritage!! At that point, I knew it was meant to be!
Here is the inspiration table from Country Living, November 1997...
...and my version...
I grew these orange pumpkins, and thought the brown and white combo would be nice with the orange accent.
I used Imperial Glass "Old Williamsburg" amber goblets and Mikasa "Italian Countryside" flatware.
Napkins were purchased at Marshalls several years ago and you all should recognize the napkin rings from BBB.
These dinner plates are on the smaller side, which I actually love. At 10 1/4, it is the perfect size for the portions we should all be eating, plus you could always use a larger dinner plate as a charger, which opens up a lot of options.
The salad plate is more of a dessert plate size at 6 7/8, but the bowl would work well for salad or soup. They do sell a luncheon plate that would be perfect for salad, and these pieces are really affordable.
Everyone needs a set of white or cream, and this is a lovely set to use alone or to mix and match.
I know, you want to get down to the details!!
