I have been trying to enjoy the last of our summer days, but with all the posts of pumpkins and such, I’ve had Fall on my mind. I put together a quick and easy table setting for Fall and thought I would share with all of you.

I love mixing old and new pieces into anything I decorate. By mixing your items, you will spend less money and it always adds a certain feel to the design.

My biggest suggestion in keeping table setting costs down, is in my blog post How To Set An Easter Table.

I Love Dishes!

A few weekends ago, my husband and I went to an antique mall on the west side of the state. It was fabulous! Some of you already know that I have a LOVE for dishes. While we were there, I spotted these Currier and Ives plates for $4 each. They are entitled “The Old Grist Mill”. You may think they look a bit wintry, but the name intrigues me, the color was perfect, and I have been anxious to use them.

I think they are perfect for my fall design!

I started with these burlap chargers I bought from my local craft store.

Burlap chargers!!

Who knew?

They were so inexpensive and I can think of so many ways to use them. So worth the purchase!

Don’t you agree?

The Linens

The striped napkins and the plain linen table runner are both neutral in color, so they can be used for many different occassions.

The napkin rings say “Blessed” and I sure feel that way! It was only right that I use those.

The glasses came from my mother. She gave them to me when we were cleaning out her house to sell.

Who else recognizes this pattern?

I don’t know how old they are, but I can remember her using them when I was little. The leaves on them made them feel so appropriate to use.

On top of that, they brought back sweet childhood memories.

My centerpiece was created in literally five minutes. I bought three white pumpkins the last time I went grocery shopping and started with those. You can buy faux pumpkins if you prefer. I added some eucalyptus greenery, some wooden pieces and a little pop of yellow, that I already had.

Easy, festive and inexpensive.

This is my simple table setting. One for everyday living.

I hope I’ve shown you how easy it is to gather new and old items to create an inviting space.

I really enjoy putting together a pretty table.

I hope my guests who come enjoy it, too.

  1. Love those chargers and dishes! I have a thing for dishes, too. Storage has become an issue. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. This is so pretty and love the burlap. Small white pumpkins are the best. I enjoy using what I have too but my creative side grabs me for new projects often.


  3. I think I pinned this to 3 different boards!! This is so warm and welcoming – it would work for Friday night chili, or Thanksgiving dinner! I love the mixture of inherited pieces, thrifted pieces, and a few new additions. Beautifully done!
