Step into autumn with Johnson Brothers’ Autumn Delight china dinnerware. Explore the vintage charm and fall decor ideas in this blog post.

Is autumn a season for vintage? Yes, although I shop and decorate with vintage year-round, autumn is the time for all the fabulous outdoor vintage markets, craft fairs, antique shows, auctions, and more—especially here in New England!

Bloggers’ Best Fall Home Tour

Today is day five of the Bloggers’ Best Fall Home Tour, hosted by my friend Kelly from The Tattered Pew. I am so excited to join 29 lovely ladies who are opening up their fall homes to you this entire week! You will find each linked at the end of this post.

If you are joining me from Jen over at Noting Grace, welcome! Isn’t Jen’s Amber and Gray fall decor simply amazing? And I adore her chunky knit yarn-covered pumpkins, too!

Welcome to our Home in Vermont

In Vermont, we are lucky enough to be able to visit a vintage market every single weekend during autumn. The crisp air, infamous foliage, sweaters, hiking, Oktoberfests, it’s all here. And definitely our season for vintage!

Favorite Things to Do in Autumn?

My favorite thing to do in autumn is shopping at Vermont Vintage Market Days, hosted in early October out of Rutland, Vermont. I never miss it! Check out a few of my visits over the years:

Johnson Brothers Autumn’s Delight in the Fall Season

I found this vintage Johnson Brothers’ Autumn’s Delight dishware set for $65 thrifting in Maine over the summer. I purchased it for our favorite fall season, autumn, at our home here in Vermont.

With friends visiting this weekend, it was time for this Autumn’s Delight collection to make its debut on my favorite second-hand table on the porch. I hope you enjoy the combination of vintage dishware, thrifted bistro chalkboard, and this second-hand wallpaper table.

If you are interested in purchasing this vintage pattern, Replacements, LTD is my go-to website for old dishware, along with eBay and Etsy.

Welcome to the Porch

This front porch has a magnificent view of the Green Mountains of Vermont, and we spend the majority of our time here at home during the New England seasons.

Over this past summer, we had this porch refinished with new columns, support beams, and flooring. We’ve also added a fire pit, patio, and natural stone steps out front. You may see more of these plans and progress here.

Can you identify my little mistake here? Oops… Somehow, I dropped the C in welcome on our little bistro chalkboard.

Vintage Wallpaper Table & Johnson Brothers

I found this wallpaper table while out Thrifting with the Gals over this past summer, and it just works perfectly on our long and narrow front porch.

When I found this Johnson Brothers’ Autumn Delight table set thrifting, I knew it would complement each other perfectly in the fall, a wonderful season for vintage!

I love the moody lighting and colors of autumn.

Johnson Brothers Fall Table Setting

A few simple and small orange pumpkins and a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers from my neighbor’s flower garden set the scene.

Oh, and a stack of blue vintage books for a little added height.

Apples for color, and raspberries are hand-picked from the garden for snacking.

Little apple and pear glass bowls were found at a yard sale.

Champagne flutes aren’t just for modern tables; they add beautiful charm to a rustic setting.

Placemats or tablecloths?

I often struggle between placemats and tablecloths on my tables, especially outdoors.

I first tried the table without either of them, then moved quickly to a colorful placemat, accentuating the Johnson brothers’ Autumn Delight dishware.

I love coming out to the porch for these mountain views every morning. It’s so peaceful and warms the heart.
