A few people have asked.....

Some have asked me how I use my Mackenzie-Childs Taylor dishes in the Fall....

It's easy....I use softer color fall items as accent pieces and centerpieces, rather than typical vibrant fall colors of pumpkins and leaves.  There are so many different colored artificial pumpkins in the stores this year and many are similar colors as the dishes, pinks, aquas and blues.  
And yes, I USE my dishes, however I do hand wash my M-C ceramics.  They are made to be used and enjoyed, not for sitting in a cabinet!

....this table was set for a lunch with a girlfriend:

Quick and easy, with a touch of fall in the center of my Courtly Check table with a glass top!

Perfect for 'chicken salad croissants' !

They can also be softened for fall by mixing with pastel yellow dishes:

The Taylor pieces also mix and match well with vintage milk glass:

The different patterns in the Taylor line offer a variety of ways to coordinate them with your everyday dishware anytime of the year!

I have also seen people use them at Christmas time and decorating the table with lots of pines, greens and birch twigs.

If you are fortunate enough to own some Taylor pieces I would love to see how you use them year round!

  1. Absolutely beautiful! You definitely should use and enjoy them.

  2. I am so glad you are using your dishes. I am purposing to use the dishes I have stored more regularly. I don't dare start collecting MC...lol...that would be one set too many for My Hero to handle. lol
    Yours are just gorgeous!!! xo Diana

  3. I love this post, and I think the Taylor Collection is easy to use year round. Some of the pieces are more suited for fall, and some more suited for spring and summer. I love Glen Park, Brighton Pavilion, and Stoke Gabriel at Christmas!

  4. So many beautiful pieces Patti and you do a beautiful job with your table setting. I have only a few pieces of the Taylor collection, I’m working on that too!

  5. Lovely Patti! I don't have any MKC plates, boo hoo, they are so stunning! All my MCK is serving pieces, flowers, and animals...I might treat myself to a plate or two for Christmas! I am loving the new fall color palettes people are using lately, much more interesting than boring brown and orange!
