A Taste of Autumn with Beautiful Xavier Gold

Noritake Xavier Gold Dinnerware, Perfect for Autumn-Fall Dining

Welcome to the 730th Tablescape Thursday! It was late evening when I completed this table setting. It’s definitely getting darker out a lot earlier these days, isn’t it?

Autumn Table Setting, 2022


With the cooler temps at night and the first day of fall behind us, I was in the mood for a tablescape with an autumn feel.

Fall Table Setting with Magnolia Centerpiece, Pheasant Vase


Not sure why but I always equate pheasants with autumn. No fall foliage in my yard just yet, so I filled Mr. Pheasant with magnolia. I should have tied a fall-colored ribbon around his neck! lol

During my recent garage renovation, which involved a lot of moving of cabinets and dishes, I rediscovered my set of Xavier Gold china by Noritake. I was so surprised to see it’s still available since I’ve had my set for quite a few years. You’ll find it available here: Xavier Gold by Noritake.

Fall Table Setting with Pumpkin Soup Tureens


Wouldn’t you know, the dark red napkin in this place setting is turned where you can’t see the pretty, embroidered fall leaf.  At least you can see it in the place setting on the right.

I paired Xavier Gold with pumpkin soup tureens, a find in Pier 1 quite a few years back. I really wish Pier 1 would reopen!

Xavier Gold is such a beautiful pattern for autumn, I absolutely love it! The chargers were from Horchow back in 2008.

Here’s a closer view showing how beautiful this Xavier Gold appears in person. I love the gold rim–so pretty contrasting against the gorgeous autumn colors in the pattern. I need to invest in some gold-colored flatware, that would be stunning with this china! (China is available here: Xavier Gold by Noritake.)

The leaf-covered water/tea glasses are from Dollar Tree several years ago. The amber goblets were a find in A Classy Flea many years back.

I’ve had these birdie napkin rings for ages–so long, I no longer remember where I found them. I rarely use them but I really like how they look in this fall setting.

Autumn is officially here and I’m starting to get excited about the upcoming holidays. I pulled out a bunch of winter throws and a few more of my autumn favorites today and started spreading them around the house. It’s time for a bit of fall decorating! Are you starting to embrace fall or still holding onto summer?  Honestly, it felt like summer here today with temps in the 80s, but I know the cool nights we’re experiencing right now will soon continue right into our days. I’m looking forward to sharing some fall decor with you real soon!
