Today I am featuring our coastal Maine home in my featured blog series “In My Mother’s Home…”. We inherited this home from my parents last fall and have been renovating and decorating it since that time. Today I’m sharing a pewter tablescape with my mother’s extensive pewter collection.
The pewter has such a warm and cozy feel to it and I just love the warm aesthetics of the old American country antiques in fall decor.
I combined a few of my pewter favorites along with pieces from my mother’s antique transferware collection, glassware, and silverware. I found these silver plate clips that I attached to each dish. Can you see them here in this photo? Any ideas what they were used for?
They were used as ashtrays back in the day, attached to each plate on a table for an after-dinner smoke:)…
Here is an antique pewter glass carousel. My mother used to put this out on her pewter tablescapes with sherry and dessert after Thanksgiving. I just love the character!
Here I used some faux fruit to add some more texture and color to the table. I also discovered the company Cutlery Couture who sells these adorable boutique silverware pouches in various options. I just love them and will be using them in all my tablescapes moving forward!!
I found this large bottle out antiquing a couple of weeks ago for about $30. It adds such a bold centerpiece statement to this pewter tablescape along with a few branches, simply cut from the backyard.

This pewter tablescape is so reminiscent of wonderful days gone by.
