Too Mod Table!

Whew ~ Could I get more orange on this table?
I'm calling this table "mod" because of the era of the tablecloth.
Most of the items are more mid-century.
Using my old stand-by Hazel Atlas (Ovide Platonite) dishes.

I love to swap the dishes and make opposite color settings with them.

This ironstone coffee server, made in Japan, is most likely from the mod era.
It's sitting on a vintage hankie of fall hues.


Luster glasses and Vera napkins round out the setting.

Yard sale  pumpkin S & P shakers for a dollar.  I think they are
really not a true pair.  Still cute!.

Lengthwise view!

The two-tier center tray is Royal Haeger USA.
The ewer vase holding the flowers is just plain Haeger USA.
What's up with that?
The yellow-beige leaf bowl is unmarked, $3 at a consignment shop.
Here's a close up of the "married pair" of S & P's and the Vera napkin.
All of my Vera napkins have been thrifted over the years, and I
own too many to remember where I got them or what I paid for them,
though knowing me it wasn't much!  :)
Just love this mod tablecloth which is perfect for fall!  
A steal for $3 at a local church sale, which we have a lot of around here. 
Mr. Retro actually spied this tablecloth before I did.  Good thing I bring him along!

I won't be able to look at orange by Thanksgiving, but right now it's perfect fall décor.
Doyle helped me today, but really...he just wants to be back in the field!
This week I'm joining:

  5. Cool! That looks like the hippie flowers I painted on some French doors in my first apartment back in 1968. Very mod!

  6. Mr. Retro has a good eye for linen spying! Another fun table. It would be right at home in my very orange house right now!

  7. I love all of your orange - I think we should declare October "Orange Month"!! I remember in the 60s, when decorators said that every room should have a touch of orange! It is always so much fun to see your vintage pieces - love that wild tablecloth, too!

  8. Beautiful table and color scheme. Those dishes are wonderful!

  9. Love the colors and the tablecloth is awesome. I must say that orange two tier tray is the highlight of the table!!

  10. I can't remember going through the orange and yellow era of decorating in the 70's
    I always loved blue & white
    It is Back and hot with the 30 year old gals today

  11. Such a beautiful fall table!! Love the oranges! Fall hugs! Have a great day! xo Holly

  12. Oh my, I remember my Mother using those colors. I still love them and they are perfect for this time of year. Doyle looks very serious. Dianne

  13. I love this color palette and it reminded me of my mom's house. I'm working on my collection. Love this table!

  14. Who knew there was Royal Haeger and just Haeger?? I need to go check my pieces!
    Mr. Retro did a great thing by finding this table cloth! It's very cool.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Erica :) ps. I love to see Doyle in his element!

  15. WOW! I love this dazzling table, have the best vintage linens. I remember them from the 70's, big, bold and now old!
    I didn't realize there were so many Hazel Atlas dishes out there.
    Have a wonderful week...

  16. Pam, this table cloth definitely looks mod to me. Fun, fun, fun! I like how you swapped the dishes. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
