Today is all about a simple and sweet autumn table and floral arrangement- and the best part of this table today? This autumn table was created using recently thrifted treasures.
Autumn Table & Floral Arrangement
Bold and beautiful flowers are perfect for autumn- and though they are not my usual go-to colors- I do love them during cozy season. This arrangement was all about a mix and mingle of farmers market blooms, grocery store flowers and some clippings from the yard.
The secret with a mixed and mingled arrangement is to simply do that. Mix and mingle. Whatever colors or flowers are talking to you work beautifully. Keep what you like and leave out what you don’t. I originally was not going to use this rich red that came tucked in with the farmers market flowers I bought. But, as I played with the flowers- I decided to tuck a few of them in and they were a lovely little accent. Bold- but when used sparingly- I feel like they work.
Especially with the other rosy and autumn toned colors tucked in. Peach garden roses, blush spray roses, dahlias, queen Anne’s lace, grasses and much more = a burst of autumn sunshine.
Table Setting Secrets
I tucked all the flowers into a vintage champagne bucket that was a $5 thrift store find – and even better- the elements in todays table are also thrifted.
This beautiful old cotton crochet lace tablecloth had me at hello. I didn’t know how much it was, or even what it was as it was wrapped up with 2 other cloths and taped so that you couldn’t really tell. But it was in the $1 bin – so it came home with me. I am in love with it.
The brown Franciscan goblets probably look familiar. I have that set of green that I absolutely love and when I bumped into this large set of brown- they went in the cart. They were the most expensive part of the table at around $12 for each set of 3 – but I argued with myself that if I waited for the half price day- they would likely not be there and I would probably kick myself for not grabbing them when I found the set.
The brown transferware plates and tureen were also thrifted- I have been collecting brown and black transferware for a few months and these plates were all stacked together and marked $1 each. They are not the same patterns or sizes- but I love them mixed on the table. I will share the other pieces I have in another post.
