I'm entertaining thoughts of Annual Vacation with "Mr. Ed".
"Mr. Ed" works so~o~o very hard entertaining me with the process of all the many 'projects' I have going on in my head at any given hour of any given day,
that our Annual Vacation is in fact more of a respite for him. . .
and a couples retreat for the two of us.
This Annual Vacation date is an entire week later this year,
so that we may visually savor all the beauty that the area foliage has to offer.
With those same amazing Autumnal hues of gold, green, orange and rust,
I set an Autumnal Carpenter's Box tablescape.
Featuring "Mr. Ed's" handmade tool box filled with glorious hued hydrangea
and maple leaves combined with "Mr. Ed's" Trout Fishing dinnerware,
I'm entertaining thoughts of Annual vacation!
I placed half of the brown and gold stripe linen cloth napkin on the table.
Allowing the other half of the napkin to drape off the side
of a linen honey gold tablecloth appeals to a more casual approach to dining.
I added our wooden handled flatware that was purchased
for daily use during our 'tours of duty' while residing in Germany.
I began layering the Rainbow Trout print dinner plate. . .
followed by the Rainbow Trout print salad / dessert plate. . .
and completed with a mug of the same printed motif.
I adore the richness of the brown rim
atop a creamy ivory background lined with a band of green.
The center of each plate, whether dinner or salad / dessert,
features the Rainbow Trout "Mr. Ed" nets each year.
Along the band, is a fly rod complete with line test and a selected fly.
To fill our Rainbow Trout mugs to the brim with steaming hot beverage,
I chose my Pumpkin Tea Pot and Autumnal creamer and lidded sugar bowl.
To accentuate the petite size, I placed it atop a wooden lazy susan.
At each end of the carpenter's box,
I placed a marbled fretwork teardrop shaped candle holder.
To balance the table,
I placed fresh seasonal fruit of Gala apples, ripe peaches
and my all time favorite, a Boch pear.
One of the most unique features of this wooden bowl
are the three tiny knobbed feet beneath that hold it one inch off the tabletop.
Inside, I placed a vibrant orange cloth napkin
with soft creamy ivory, yellow and green floral motif.
