Frankoma & Apples

Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Several months ago I found some vintage Frankoma Plainsman Dinnerware at the Goodwill. Some were not in very good condition but I dug thru and found 4 dinner plates and 4 small bread plates that were in good condition. They came home with me and into my dish closet they went. I really liked them but wasn't too inspired by them.

Flash foward to our recent trip to Minnesota. We took a day trip to the Mall of America and I found the Marshall's there. As I browsed the dishes there I found the CUTEST salad plates and thought of those Frankoma plates that I wasn't sure what to do with.

Not only was I totally drawn to these Citrus Dot Collection salad plates by Home Essentials And Beyond, I KNEW I planned to draw out the red in the cinnamon colored brown Frankoma and couple with red table linens. The placemats and napkins are well used and been in my collection for a long time.

I cannot think of red in September without thinking of APPLES. I filled a small cloche with Braeburns and set them atop a shaker box.

And since things seems a bit sparce, I added an apple to each place setting.

The glassware is a combination of vintage pressed glass stems and some large iced teas from Dollar Tree.

Basically a very simple table but it reflects ME!

Editing to add to Marty's Fall Cloche Party. I don't have all my fall decorating done yet but I wanted to add this fall table, cloche and all in for the fun! Thanks for hosting Marty!
