Are you looking for simple Thanksgiving or autumn decorating ideas? Let me share with you a few simple tips and tricks to help get you started.
After a visit to Vintage Market Days Vermont this past weekend and eyeing all the brown and white transferware pieces, it inspired me to dig out my mother’s antique brown and white transferware dishes for a simple and easy autumn Thanksgiving table setting.
Vintage Brown and White Transferware
You may see more of this heirloom collection in the post, Brown and White Antique Transferware Dish Collection when we first inherited our home in Maine.
You can find brown and white transferware dishes at your local thrift shops, flea markets, and quite a few sets and pieces are also available on Etsy.

SHOP VINTAGE BROWN AND WHITE TRANSFERWARE
A quick stop at a local thrift shop and I found a few blue glass plates for .50 cents a piece. The color blue pairs so well with brown and white transferware dishes.
So, this isn’t an official Thanksgiving table. I just liked the color combinations for autumn and was inspired to share them with you here today.
We have actually enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinners dining out for many many years now with family and friends alike.
Vintage Inspired Autumn Mantel
Empty vintage frames, salvaged windows, small mirrors, and brass bookends layer nicely on a vintage mantel in the dining room.
They are such beautiful and warming autumn decor accents.

Late Autumn Mums
Can we talk mums? Late in the autumn season, you can score big on leftover Mums at the nurseries.
I bought these orange mums for $5.00!!
An Old White Farmhouse Basket
I love this old basket I found too.
It’s been outside on our deck all summer and it was time for it to come inside for the winter.

Ann, I love brown and white transfer ware and since we are having a large group for Thanksgiving, I will definitely be adding it to our table. Love all the vintage items…wish we had the same resources you do in Maine here….not very many good vintage or antique stores. Thanks for sharing. It’s always such a treat to see your home.
Mary you are the sweetest. Thank you!

We had the same brown transferware when we were first married, 46 years ago. How I wish we still had it. I LOVE the round white basket. I have never seen anything like it.
