Sunflowers and Checks Tablescape


Fall is a lovely time of year.  I am looking forward to cooler temps and some rain. Living in California, we are bombarded with fires and smoke. 
Welcome to another tablescape blog hop for welcoming fall.  Chloe Crabt from Celebrate and Decorate  has put together another group of talented bloggers who will be sharing their lovely Fall tables.  Be sure to click the links toward the bottom of this post. My table is full of cheer with sunflowers and checks.


I set this table up in our Breakfast room where the ceiling is painted red.
I have added my Mackenzie Child's Courtly Check plates,  mugs and saucers, & napkins along with the lamp shades.

Beautiful bouquet of sunflowers sets the stage for this colorful table. A Buffalo Plaid tablecloth compliments the yellow and orange. Sunflowers are such a cheerful and happy flower.  They are very plentiful in the stores now.

I am using orange and yellow sunflower plates and bowls that sit on each courtly Check dinner plate.

The Mackenzie Child's lamp shades sit on top of some silver candle holders/


Orange and yellow flower placemats coordinate with the bowls and plates.
Black flatware from Horchow goes nicely with the black and white. I added some orange and yellow napkins to the Courtly check napkins for more color pop.




Chair sashes with sunflower pillows complete the look.

  1. Good morning Linda. Your table makes me smile and to enjoy breakfast in this beautiful setting would be amazing. I always enjoy your chair sashes, they never disappoint. Your collection of MC Courtly Check is stunning on your table with the mixing of napkins and the flower placemats. Your red ceiling makes the setting even more beautiful.

    It is always fun hopping with you!

  11. Hi there, Linda! When my husband sees something engaging or thought-provoking, he always says, "Well, who'd a thunk it?" That's what I thought when I saw the title of this post - BEFORE I'd even scrolled to see your pictures. I simply adore this table. It's like playing checkers with sunflower blooms. LOVE it!

  14. Just gorgeous Linda! There’s nothing cheerier that sunflowers and they’re perfectly paired with your black and white checked elements. I’m lovin’ those flower petal placemats framing your placesettings and your Courtly Check lampshades are spectacular! As always it’s a treat to have a virtual seat at your table. I hope cooler temps and rains prevail to help put out those devastating fires, keep safe. ♥

  15. Linda, Cheerful and happy table. Sunflowers are perfect with MKC plates and mugs.I love the pops of orange, gold, and yellow with the black and white check.
    Your sunflower pillows and chair sashes are great accents.

  16. Linda, this really is a cheerful table setting. The red ceiling and the sunflowers on the table's center immediately draw the eye up. I do love how you've incorporated your MC dishware and napkins with the sunflower pieces. The way you doubled your napkins made me think they were solids with an MC check border - nicely done! The lampshades on the candlesticks are a brilliant touch too. And those placemats are super cute - they look like they're crocheted! A great segue from summer to fall, and hopefully the end of the fires in your area.

  27. Linda, I find myself smiling while reading your blog post regarding your sunflower fall tablescape. It is bright and cheerful and definitely something that is needed since it is cold and rainy here in Wisconsin. We needed to turn on the heater last night. Your lovely tablescape reminded me that the fun of not yet over and we have pleasant time yet to come. I am such a fan of MacKenzie Child's pieces and you used them beautifully in your mix with bright orange and yellow and your gorgeous sunflowers. Such a playful combination and one that sets a happier mood. I can easily see this tablescape for summer and fall. Beautifully done. Stay safe and cool and my prayers are for everyone in CA with the wildfires.

  31. Linda, first, I’m loving the black and white check tablecloth. It is a wonderful base for all your beautiful dishes. The flowers in the vase makes a stunning centerpiece. The sunflower ties on the chairs are really a special touch.

  32. Any meal eaten at this table would be a real treat. I'm a huge buffalo check fan and was instantly drawn to the tablecloth. I love the sunflowers, they are so cheerful and the chair decor is an extra special treat.
