Fall Tablescape-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

I recently posted a review of some of my previous Fall tablescapes, but I didn't find this Fall tablescape when I was preparing the review - probably because I had listed it as a brown and white tablescape. So, I'm reposting an extra Fall tablescape from October, 2013.

The chargers are “Lace” by Kennex, which I bought at J.C. Penney about four years ago.  The dinner plates are by Gibson.  I’ve probably had them for six years.  I bought them at an outlet store.  The soup bowls (Mammoet, Hotelporselein), which I bought at an estate sale some time ago, are on top of the etched glass dessert plates that I used in a tablescape a couple of weeks ago.

Both the crystal water goblets, and the milk glass goblets (which I’m using for wine) were purchased from estate sales at different times.

I tied the white, restaurant napkins with brown and white herringbone ribbon that I had in my stash, and attached an acorn ornament that is part of my Fall d├ęcor.  I ordered the faux bamboo flatware online a few years ago.

After the soup course, I’m serving baked potatoes with our dinner.  Small brown and white pitchers will hold melted butter.  This pitcher, which I purchased at a flea market, is Berkeley Pattern by Sterling China Co.

This one, purchased at auction for $8.00, is Brier, Royal.

Our centerpiece is our first course – soup, served from a tureen I have had for a very long time.  I think I bought it at a junk store.

After the soup course, I will remove the tureen, and replace it with this beautifully painted faux pumpkin that I ordered from Celestina Marie Designs Etsy.

Celestina is so talented.  I love this painting, and I love bringing it out every Fall.

Thank you for visiting me today.

I love the white with the brown. I always think white makes any table so elegant. The goblets and tureen are so beautiful. Hard to see fall come and summer leave, but this is so pretty.
