Fall is in the air and I am thinking about decorating the house and ... of all things ... dishes. I have a minor dish obsession and I change my dishes almost as much as I change my shoes. Changing dishes is so easy to do and it keeps me from feeling bored in the kitchen.
I start with two set of basic dishes; white and taupe. To mix things up I either add a colored dish or funky fun salad plate or bowl.
I hate matchy, matchy so here's the fun part, I stack/stagger the plates starting with the charger, the dinner plate, next the salad plate, and then sometimes finishing it off with a pretty bowl or an item on top of the salad plate. I mix the style of water goblet and wine glass to add interest. Add some great linens, flowers and candlelight and you have a gorgeous table.
It really doesn't take much effort and it keeps each season or occasion special and interesting. Luckily I have a great dish storage area in our basement. On one new construction project I made a dish room in my wonderful client's basement and at the time I wondered how someone could ever fill it...I'm well on my way at this point. :)
Enjoy a few fall table setting photos - enjoy!!

Simple setting with wicker charger, soft blue for an accent and a trailing of nuts for that fall feeling.
