    They are a classic so just add some fall colored placemats and napkins. Then a fall centerpiece. Go elegant and minimal.

    I would use solid napkins or chargers whatever you decide to use (charges are $1 at the dollar store and comes in all colors) use your fall floral or candles and enjoy the holiday

  • I would keep it simple with a tablecloth to match and some candles.

    A cream color table cloth or place-mats with mossy green napkins. Elegant carved crystal stemware. For a centerpiece, pine boughs and cream colored candles. A solid color charger plate to bring out the rose in the dishes.

    No problem, Antique Roses for a Thanksgiving Meal, how wonderful! Decide on one of the colours to have as Tablecloth, Table centre, Candles etc. or go for Silver or Gold or Bronze! Have a wonderful time, but do be safe!

    Antique rose as in color or pattern with roses on them? Make a middle of the table decoration with pumpkins and squash and some ivy entwined thru them. The plates don't have to match Thanksgiving. Use colored napkins and even glasses you get at the dollar store. Giving thanks is more important than plates.

    Are the dishes rose colored (light pink) or do they have a rose pattern?

    Do you want to use the dishes only for decor, or will you be actually using some of them for food serving during the meal?

    Posting a picture of the dishes would enable us to instantly see what you have to work with.

    Hello. Can you post a photo of your dishes? They might go nicely with copper colored decorations.......possibly linens.

    I would use the antique rose color in other places on your dining table. You can add candles, ribbons, and bows in that color to incorporate it into your decor.

    If you have access to colorful fall leaves (or faux ones) they can be added to the table (on a runner) and place your beautiful antique dishes on the leaves. You could also add candles to antique saucers or bowls.

    Hi! My rose dishes are my favorite dishes. I find they work well for any occasion by switching out the table linens and centerpiece. Enjoy them!

    Set the table with the plates

    You could do this to leaves in the color of your choice:

  • Oh gosh, lucky you, they sound beautiful. I would use them as your place settings, I would set them with gold flatware (you can use plastic if you don't have stainless ones...they are sturdy and look real.) I would use small glass vases at each place setting with roses, cream colored candles on brass candlesticks.
