It’s finally Friday and I hope your week was a good one. October seems to be flying by for me and this morning I was finally able to put the finishing touches of Autumn on my dining room table. In this room I was going with a totally new look using many of the blue willow china pieces I already had. It’s the softer look of Autumn and I’m liking the more simplistic feel.
Last night I picked up a bag of small pumpkins to add some color contrast and more Autumn feel. That’s really the only item I purchased for the tablescape, everything else I already had. The linen table runner was spruced up with a wide burlap ribbon and doilies were used through out.
The pieces are not from a matching set, they’re all orphans I’ve rescued from yard sales, estate sales or thrift stores. But, I like the eclectic look of mismatched pieces.
I also used a teacup soy candle I had in inventory to add a wonderful Hazelnut Coffee scent. This cup is available in my Etsy shop, just click here.
Remember the decoupaged paper and lace pumpkins I made? Check out the tutorial here.
Love the look of blue willow, lace and burlap.
This soup tureen is a great center piece and the wooden candle stand give the table height.
I’ve had these Reader’s Digest books for a long time and I’ve retired them from my craft booth displays to now be used in my home decor.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my new Blue Willow Autumn look and would love to hear what you’re doing different this season. You can click here to take a look at my more traditional Autumn decor and my faux mantle in my family room.
