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.
