Have a Rosy Fall... Tablescape!

Happy Wednesday Friends! Remember this gorgeous estate sale find? It's a little heavier than my usual table linens so I thought it would make a lovely transition into fall...

If you told me a year ago, that I would be adding rosy accents to my decor, I might have been skeptical!  Don't get me wrong, I like pink-- I wear it often and have some in my bedroom and studio.  I just didn't quite see it for my living and dining spaces but that was before I found Rosie, my prized vintage sofa...

Ever since I saw how she complements my gray walls and turquoise hues, I have been smitten and definitely more open minded about her rosy shade which leads me back to the table runner and the inspiration for my fall tablescape.   Recognize that sugar bowl?

You may remember, I hinted that I had a plan for these recent transferware treasures--found on the same day but different sales! I am always amazed at how things come together when I mix my thrifted goodies.  

Vintage transferware

I often pair my china with vintage thrift store dishes and I really love the transferware with the table runner.  Even though the shaker was missing its mate, I grabbed it for .50 and it makes the perfect succulent vase. Tiny golden pumpkins add sparkle and pick up the gold in the runner and china.

Curious about those ivory legs in the background? I have had this yard sale serving stand for ages.  Here it serves double duty--adding height and also creating a unique and functional display for pretty cups for coffee with dessert.  Do you spot another recent Friday's Find feature?

Here's a closer peek:

Did you notice the tiny leaf place card holders? Originally on clearance from Target, I used these every Thanksgiving for years!

  1. This is all so pretty, Cecelia! It really is fun to see thrifted items come together! Looking forward to seeing more!

  2. That made a very pretty runner and looks like you had the perfect dishes to go with it. Looks really pretty.

  3. Love your apple dishes. You sure have many thrifted treasures!

  4. You always have beautiful tablescapes, Cecilia but this one may be my favorite! Love the transferware and your rosy runner! Perfect touch. As much as I love color, I find I'm crushing on taupe. To me, it's the perfect neutral. I'm actually thinking of painting my lower kitchen cabinets in it. Bruce is going to roll his eyes if I do. He says he has to keep moving or I'll paint him too. Lol. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  7. Your fall decor is just beautiful! I love the way the table is set and the pretty China. TFS.

  8. Sweet Cecilia, your fall tablescape is simply lovely and your dishes are so perfect for this wonderful season. You certainly know how to make a guest feel welcomed and I know anyone that sits at your table has a delightful time. Hugs to you!

  9. Cecilia, I love that runner and it certainly does hi-light sweet Rosie! I really like the pink tones mixed in with your aqua. I too love it when treasures seem to come together. Seeing your pretty plate reminds me that I found some similar ones last year and I haven't pulled them out yet. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
