Blue Willow Autumn Table

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.

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.
