Grapes Harvest Vintage Tablescape

At this time of year Virginia wineries are harvesting
their grapes.  This amazing vintage Fallani & Cohn tablecloth (designed
by The Ryans) was perfect for my grapes harvest table.

My kitchen has a grapes theme décor, so I gathered up my pitchers,
salt & pepper shakers, and large compote bowl and went to work. 


The wonderful pitcher on the left is Fitz Floyd from 1988.  A Christmas gift
from Mr. Retro that I treasured then and still do now.  Gorgeous!

Purple Moon wine of course!  Vintage amethyst candlesticks.
Two vintage amethyst glass pitchers.  The larger pitcher on the
right belonged to my grandmother, another item I treasure. 
Vintage Fenton dolphin footed bowl.  
Vintage Vera napkins and plain white plates....yard sale find,
because one always needs plain white plates. 

I dressed up these boring  typical wine glasses by painting paper
doilies purple, topped with a lilac paper circle, & added a purple
flower embellishment.  Good use of my crafting stuff, heh? 
I've had the little shot glasses forever, the maker a mystery.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my vintage grapes tablescape. 
I am joining the tablescape challenge at
  Kathleen challenged us to do a fall tablescape using lots
of purple, no orange.  I gave myself an "A" for this months challenge! ;)
Thanks so much for your visit.
