Autumn Into Fall DIY Centerpiece
Vintage English Countryside Johnson Brother’s China and Buffalo Check Napkins

 This year I created an Autumn into Fall Elegant Farmhouse Tablescape. It is both elegant with cut crystal and vintage Johnson Brothers English Countryside Dishes, and farmhouse with brown and white buffalo check napkins, and galvanized tin lantern. The secret: it’s also an affordable fall centerpiece.

Although the brown and white gingham napkins were the initial inspiration, I knew they would pair well with my vintage Johnson Brothers Olde English Countryside dishware.

Vintage Dishes and Lace Tablecloth combine for an Autumn Into Fall Elegant Tablescape

The table is anchored with a vintage white tablecloth that has an exquisite five inch lace trim. Yes, it is a round table cloth on a rectangle table. I break almost all the rules, so that’s no surprise to you! I love that you get a good look at the lace as it borders the ends of the table.

The center piece is super quick, easy, and inexpensive. We love those words, right?  I used a galvanized lantern that I’ve had for a while as the base. Instead of using a predictable candle, I loaded it with fruit, vegetables, plants, and fairy lights (a modern day cornucopia)! You can find a step by step guide to re-create this fall centerpiece on the link to this blog post I wrote: Budget Friendly DIY Fall Centerpiece

The candlesticks, floral vases, chargers, and water goblets were crystal clear; they add an unexpected fancy element to all the earthy browns. When the lighting was perfect for photographing the table, and I had no flowers on hand, I headed to the front yard and clipped some low hanging branches from our Japanese Maple. You can see they are just starting to show off their beautiful fall color.

You know by now, that the chandelier can’t go unadorned. She got REAL fancy this fall with a feather boa all her own. I think it’s stunning on her. What do you think?
