Summer Transition to Fall Tablescape

 
It's September and the air is actually getting somewhat cooler outside, so I decided to start adding warmth to my table. This will be the first of my series of Fall tablescapes.


 

I thought this Bavarian Tirschenreuth dinnerware in Dogwood pattern would be perfect for the transition, not too summery but not too autumnal.
The stems of the goblets are actually moss green in color too, but it is not too evident in these pictures
I love this vintage tureen transferware, very fall-ish in color. I bought it from Richard Crowell's store a long time ago.
Aren't those ghosts so cute? Not too scary at all. They are from Goodwill.

 Lacy orange tablecloth with maple leaves.
 I don't know the pattern name but they are silver plated.
 Squirrels S & P shakers from Walmart

 I love this pair of very heavy iron art nouveau candlesticks holder. I bought them from an antique store in Natchez, I think for $8. Score!!!


 I thought I would use these asparagus and artichoke (at least, I think that is what they are) napkin rings but the rests are still unpacked and I could not find them so I added some rustic butterfly rings too.
 I started adding some Fall touches on the buffet too.

 I still do not have all of our tea sets here so I just took a white medallion teapot to mix with my Dogwood cups and saucers.


Thank you so much for your visits and thanks to the hostesses throwing the parties. Your efforts are always appreciated.

Beautiful tablescape for Fall, specially the great oranges and tone hues thru it all.
Your small details are adorable, like your S&P squirrels and acorns napkin holders.
Looks like you're getting so accustomed to your new home Chris, as it's always looking like you. The china is lovely too.
Hugs,
FABBY

Very nice! When you're tired of the candlesticks, I'll take them off your hands! Ha! Visiting from Rustic-Refined.

Your tablescape is just wonderful, Christine. You do have a way with table settings and making them special. I love the pheasants, and the attention to detail on your table is fabulous. Thanks for sharing and joining me for tea. Enjoy this first week of Autumn.

Precious fall tablescape! The ghosts are very cute but not scary. Your tureen has lovely fall colors. The candleholders are truly elegant and wonderful accents. Have a grand week. Hope you take a peek of my post Orange Bursts Upon Autumn Tea!

What a gorgeous table! I love the fall colors mixed with some playful elements, too.
It can go from now all the way to Thanksgiving with just a few tweaks! Love it.
