If I had to pick a color that I would call my least favorite, that would probably be orange. That being said, I'm open to try new things and in looking around my storage shelves for some table accents for a dinner party I found some of my favorite color and something that I use...

vintage aqua bottles filled with flowers in rust for thanksgiving

in my home often often. My favorite color if you haven't guessed by following the blog (or are new here) is aqua.

At this time of year the brown transferware comes out of hiding for use. It belonged to my husband's late mother and it's somewhat nostalgic for him as he recalls growing up in Switzerland with this set being used in autumn as well.
