Welcome through my red door!
I’m popping over to Tabletop Tuesday hosted by Marty at A Stroll Thru Life, Centerpiece Wednesday with Karin at Style Sisters and Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch this week.
When I was a teenager, I knew I wanted a green, red and white kitchen. And ever since I’ve had my own kitchens they’ve pretty much been those colors because I’ve always seemed to have a fruit theme in them. So I have a lot of fruit accessories flowing through my kitchen, table area and family room. I haven’t gotten tired of it yet, maybe someday I’ll change it. But some room will have to be able to house my tiffany lamp. I’ve dragged it to every house I’ve lived in for the past 20 years and don’t want to give it up!
I didn’t need to search to find inspiration for this table setting! It was everywhere…a no brainer!
A friend gave me the apple votive candle holder in the terra cotta pot. I elevated it in a Henn navy blue painted basket and filled the basket with silk grape vines and faux apples.
The fruit patterned placements were also given to me by a friend. I’m easy to buy for!
I added a little cluster of glass grapes to one of my Home Goods pitchers.
Another gift from the same friend that gave me the placemats were the rose and clear glass dessert cups and plates sitting on top of the white fruit trimmed dinner plates. They belonged to her mother and I’m honored to have them! She knows me so well!
The blue sponged napkin rings are from Henn also, as well as the…
watermelon shaker tray. I told you on my first tablescape that you would be seeing Henn sprinkled in most of my settings! I didn’t point it out, but it was in my last two also.

I had given this little service bell to my grandmother many, many years ago and I got it back when she passed away.
You can sort of see the fruit pattern on the white plates I bought about 20 years ago from the Horchow catalog. But you can also see the beating the flatware is getting, I’m guessing from the dishwasher. Never noticed it before! The camera doesn’t lie!
Oh, that’s better!

I don’t know why I put the teapot on the table…I don’t have any teacups for the tea! I just love this pot!

Looking around the room, in the distances, you can see other fruits that make up my kitchen, eating area and family room. But don’t look too close…I didn’t get all my messes cleaned up!
Thank you so much for stopping in. I hope you enjoyed your stay. See you soon!
