It’s early November and everyone seems to be getting ready for Christmas earlier and earlier, don’t you feel? But If I start decorating too early for Christmas, all my greenery dries out, makes a mess, and I can not wait to take it all down, as I need to change things around way too often, ha! Therefore, for now, I’m still in the late Autumn and Thanksgiving decorating mode. And while I was at the coastal Maine home last week, I started to eye my mother’s vintage transferware set and how beautiful it would be to create a simple Autumn or Thanksgiving table with.
A quick stop at the local thrift shop found me a few blue glass plates for .50 cents apiece. I love the way they look with the transferware. And that is how this super easy table setting was created. This will not be our Thanksgiving table setting, just something that I wanted to put together, as I loved the colors and the dishes together so much!!
I also picked up a couple of empty vintage frames, a small mirror, and two brass geese to layer my vintage mantel within the dining room, while I was home in Maine antiquing with a girlfriend. They add such a warm accent to the mantel.
And can we talk mums? Later on, in the Fall, you can score big on leftover Mums at the nurseries. I bought these orange mums for $5.00!!
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.
I think it’s amazing what a few collected dishes scattered on a table can do for a space!
