I love dahlias, the last flowers blooming in the garden. I love gourds, their wonderful colors and textures. Do the two go together? Well, for me they do!
With those things in place, it was a no brainer to use these wonderful dishes that look so much like the season and complement perfectly the table runner. I have to share with you the dishes were a birthday gift from a very special friend who saw them at Marshall’s and thought I had to have them. Do you think she knows me well? How lucky am I to have both her as a friend and something new and beautiful for the table!
Picking up the black in the leaf design are these oblong plates from Ikea which are used to separate the mug that will hold lobster stew from the plate. As much as I like to fold napkins, this time I defer to black napkin rings for a little bit of shine.
