Friendly Village Fall Table

Although our other blog is definitely not "Autumn-themed," Pat wanted to use the new charger we just bought (from Pier  this season1.......just had to have it - we are sooooo addicted to dishware........)  It seemed natural to use Johnson Brother's "Friendly Village" dinnerware to go with it.

Flatware is called "Woodland" by Cambridge - Pat found it at Tuesday Morning several years ago

One of Pat's favorites.....a "Cinnabar" Fiesta(ware) chop plate used as a charger

We probably spent more than we should, but this charger is really neat - and should be really, really versatile.

Keeping with the "woodland" theme, Pat used "Woodland-Brown" glassware by Fostoria

Matching tea light holders are actually rustic napkin rings

With my favorite "Friendly Village" bowl

Where it came from:
Faux Wood Charger - from Pier 1 this season
Charger - "Cinnabar" Fiesta(ware) chop plate by Homer Laughlin from Replacements
Dinnerware - "Friendly Village" by Johnson Brothers from our Mother
Flatware - "Woodland" by Cambridge from Tuesday Morning
Glassware - "Woodland - Brown" (1976-1981) by Fostoria from Pat's collection
Napkin - Handmade by Pat to match charger
Ivory Tapers and Faux Wood Tea Light Holders - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Wood Candle Holders - from a local thrift store

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:


  1. One of my favorite dinner patterns and the one that graces my Thanksgiving table every year! You've honored it beautifully and I love those chargers (worth EVERY penny!). Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  2. LOVE that wood charger! So homey for fall....Thank you so much for linking up and sharing at Dishing It & Digging It. We enjoy seeing your creativity each week! :)

  3. I like your wood-look charger but it's the Cinnabar one that really makes this place setting a star. It pulls out those bits of burgandy in that china so beautifully. Lovely table!

  4. I love this china (I have a set I always used for thanksgiving until I bought a set of Lenox Westwind which is now my Thanksgiving china). Both beautiful patterns!
