A Little Bit of Autumn on the Table

At the close of a long hot summer, the appearance of the pumpkin heralds the welcome arrival of autumn. ~ Kari Spencer 

Hello my lovely friends and welcome to my little blog! 

Today I'm sharing a little tablescape with you. It was raining hard so it was dark and dreary out when I took my pictures. You can see the tamaracs in our back yard are changing colour.

I had planned to gather some leaves from our yard but it was not a good day to be out so I settled for faux. I have the chandelier on because we need the lighting.

I started with these lovely hydrangeas and a few little pumpkins. 

Then I brought out some blue and white transferware. I think the blue looks wonderful with orange, don't you?

The teacup is Johnson Bros. Old Britain Castles.

The pumpkin soup tureens with their matching plates were a gift from my son last Christmas.

He found them at Sur La Table in Colorado where he is teaching and doing research at the university. I love the embossed pumpkins adorning the rim of the plate! He gave me a set of four plates and four soup tureens. A meal is always more enjoyable when you have fun dishes, don't you think?

The blue dinner plate is The Victorian English Pottery EST 1819 by Edward Challinor in England. The cream napkins have a leaf design and I'm using my mother's vintage wedding silver. Oops, I just realized I forgot the water goblets.

My son chose these soup tureens because he knows of my fondness for little white pumpkins. He is so thoughtful! We have enjoyed chili in them and today we're going to have a hearty home made creamy vegetable soup served from this soup tureen. 

Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things. ~ Chaim Potok

The teapot of course is Blue Willow and it's made by Churchill. 

Just a simple little tablescape for two, nothing fancy.

I found this on the internet and thought it perfect to end my post with.

Have a beautiful day everyone and thank you so much for your visit.
