A Little Decorating for Autumn

Don brought me a big bouquet of sunflowers - so I thought it was time to decorate the buffet.  The little pumpkin soup tureens on the right he found at a yard sale - the ones on the left he gave me for our anniversary in September.  Now I have enough for the whole family when they come to dinner.  Hmmm, what kind of soup should I make first?

The cabbage tureen I've had for several years - the little pumpkin in front of the sunflowers was found at a yard sale for 50 cents yesterday.  Later we saw one for 5.00 at another yard sale.

 Cute little elf in front of the sunflowers was from a yard sale several years ago.
 Let's add an autumn pitcher

 And a nice big pumpkin pitcher  behind it
Some pale pumpkins from the Dollar Store last year

 And now pear shaped serving dishes on the left

 Add a few faux acorns

And I think we're done
How is your autumn decorating coming along?

I love pumpkins. Love their colour and all their different forms. I also got some in the house for decoration. And within a few weeks, I can make delicious potage of them.

It looks pretty and you have some sweet pieces for fall. It's great that you have 2 sets of similar soup bowls. They are cute! I have my decorating done for a week now inside and out. Our Thanksgiving is a week from today!! Have a beautiful day.

Beautiful decorations!! They look so lovely all displayed together. I love the white pumpkins and the idea of pumpkin soup bowls too, you must use those a lot in the autumn I imagine. Hope you enjoy looking at your decorations - I did! xx

You're ready to go! What a beautiful bouquet, surrounded by autumn friends. What I want to do for autumn is clear out all the clutter I've let accumulate over summer and put away all the odds and ends that never seem to find a place to live!

Very nice! I think I love the little cute elf the best!

Everything looks great together! I have pumpkin tureens for soup too. I use them every Thanksgiving for squash soup and they are wonderful! I didn't get them at the prices you did, though! By the way, I keep forgetting to say I love your fall header with the bounty of pumpkins and the great trucks!
