I wanted to show you all a few of the odds and ends I've collected in my travels lately, so I thought I would set a fall table in the kitchen. Besides, I love to play with dishes, right? ;)
Yes, those are the same faux flowers I showed you a couple of weeks ago. I did actually get some chrysanthemums to put on the table, but I want to add some little gourds to them and just haven't gotten around to doing that yet.
I set this table with a lot of mismatched china and thrift store/rummage sale finds. The covered casserole (shown above) was a HomeGoods find a few years ago. I bring it out every fall to add color to my table. :)
I bought this handsome canine fellow (above) at the recent Visiting Nurse's Rummage Sale for my dear friend, Robin. He's just visiting my table before I bring him to his new home.
I bought this little black urn (above) at the rummage sale also. I'm not quite sure what I'll do with it yet, but it comes in handy here to hold a little white pumpkin. :)
I set the table with three mismatched thrift store dishes. I only have one of the turkey dishes (above) and two of the country scenes (below). Luckily, there are only three of us eating dinner tonight.
And yes, I placed two more little white pumpkins on top of the wooden candlesticks. They are a recent thrift store find, and an unusual size. All of the pillar candles I've seen so far are just ever so slightly too big to fit them. :(
Woven rattan chargers, cotton damask napkins, mother of pearl napkin rings and Waterford crystal round out the settings. Oh, and my usual array of flatware -- antique bone-handled knives and vintage silverplate forks and spoons.
Happy autumn colors here at Little Red House. The tablecloth is Ralph Lauren. The curtains are Country Curtains. The wallpaper (which I swear I'm going to strip soon!) is Waverley.
So that's autumn in the kitchen here at Little Red House. :)
