Join me today on our front porch in the Mountains of Vermont, and let’s set the table together with all things vintage and Autumn inspiring.

Set the Table with Vintage Autumn Warmth

Seasonal Flowers

It’s still early autumn here in Vermont. The leaves are just starting to change and the temps are falling.

Over the weekend our neighbors stopped in to enjoy an outdoor fire pit with us and brought over these freshly cut autumn flowers in a mason jar from their flower garden.

I love the simplicity and brilliant colors they add to our outdoor porch’s vintage wallpaper table, the table we will set today with autumn’s vintage warmth.


Vintage Dishes

I like to keep our outdoor porch table settings simple, being outdoors on the porch and all.

Today I’m setting the table for a Classic Beef Stew that I made earlier in the week on a chilly rainy day. It’s sooo delicious! And my husband made homemade mashed potatoes to go with it.

Keeping with the color theme of these fall flowers I chose green and blue collected vintage dishes from around the house. The Limoges china bowls for the Beef Stew were a bargain find while I was out “Thrifting with the Gals” this past spring. See more of them in the post, Spring Table Setting Ideas | Green with Envy.

Along with these favorite mismatched green champagne flutes. You’re going to love them!

Over the summer I found these 4 blue charger plates that I am using as the foundation for the vintage green and white Limoges bowls. You may see more of these blue chargers in the post, Just 4 Blue Dishes on the 4th of July.

A Basket of Apples

Apples are a signature element of autumn.

A basket or bowl of apples on your table adds so much warmth.

No matter what meal you are serving.

And this time of the year Vermont’s local farm stands offer up all the apples one can muster. It’s also apple picking season here in Vermont, a traditional autumn family activity.

Here’s a short video of a Vermont roadside stand that I stopped at earlier this week:

Placemats or Tablecloths?

I love collecting vintage tablecloths. But honestly, I prefer placemats. Especially if I am setting the table on a vintage or antique table like this one.

Here I used a collection of red placemats that I have had for so long now that I don’t even know where I found them…

Don’t you just love all the warm colors that accompany autumn?

As I decorate our front porch for fall, I’m also adding purple Aster planters, sunflower arrangements, a coffee table fire pit, cornstalks, and more. You may check it all out in this recent post, 7 Ways to Add Autumn Spirit to Your Front Porch this Fall.

How about a Fakery Bakery?

This year I discovered these “Fakery Bakeries” made by my friend Dawn over at Everything Dawn.

On my table here today, do you see that amazing-looking Pecan Pie?

Doesn’t it look delicious?

Did it fool you? It’s not real, the pie is one of Dawn’s creations.

I absolutely love having Dawn’s handmade pieces on my tables and on my kitchen countertops. They add all the ambiance without having to bake a thing.
