Table Settings For Autumn

As promised, I've been pulling out some of my old chocolate-colored Fall tablepottery dinnerware.  And like I suspected, it looks super with our new updated table linens, especially for fall.

Can't you just picture whipping up some piping hot oatmeal to warm up your kids before school and serving it in these dishes? The Cajun table linens from Park DCajun place settingesigns help complete that warm, homey look, along with the unique glass napkin ring in persimmon red.

If you love pip berries, this Berry pattern from IHF will bring yoBerry place settingur table into fall in style. Olive and rust combine in a basic check border that surrounds a nubby linen insert embroidered with pip berries on the vine. The traditional textured star napkin ring completes the primitive look.

Before you ask, I'll go ahead and tell you that the dinnerware is a Pennsylvania Dutch motif commonly known as "Daisy and Dot". It was manufactured by Western Stoneware from the 1950s to the early 1960s and is marked with the Marcrest logo, a brand name created for this line of dinnerware. More information on the history of Daisy and Dot can be found at this website.


  1. Beautiful table settings! You are so creative. I love the dressed up pitcher, especially. Thanks so much for the reference to my website, :-) I'd love to add your pictures to my site with a link back to you, if it's ok?! Rita

  2. Thanks, Rita! It's fine with me if you'd like to use my Marcrest pictures on your website; a link back is very much appreciated.

    By the way, I LOVE your collection! I'm sure I'll be using your website as an identification reference as I bring more pieces of Daisy and Dot into my shop.
