September Breakfast Table

The breakfast table needed a 'change
of clothes' for Fall. I knew I wanted to
 use the red willow dishes.
I started with the wood board you 
saw in THIS post.
 I love using my tea set for the centerpiece.
I added a wine basket lined with a fall
fabric wine tote. The bottle top has a 
wine pour spout that's also an 
aerator. I found it at Walmart.
I knew I wanted to use the rattan chargers.
I'll use the red striped napkins and the 
fruit painted napkin rings.
There were a few things on which I couldn't
 decide. Should I use red plaid flannel placemats ?
Or should I use the straw with the red fabric
edge? Should I use the small tin trays?
I could also add a white plate to lighten it up 
and make it look less wintery.
I wanted to use the apple and pear
salt and pepper set on the board.
But, I could also put them in a small
 Longaberger basket. It goes with the wine
 basket at the other end of the board.
Or I could put them on one of the painted trays.
Or keep them on the place settings for
a bread and butter plate.
Or just stack them on the end of the board.
I found these vintage trays in a North Carolina
 thrift store. I think they are little 
snack trays to be used when playing bridge.
 Battery operated mini lamps have red striped 
shades that I found thrifting years ago.
Apple and pear painted Dollar Store
wine glasses. Mini jam jars look cute and 
when they are empty, I will use them
 for a quick project. 
 Decided on this version for now.
A little bit of apple red for September.
In the mood for more apples?
How about Apple Cobbler? It will make your
 house smell wonderful!

  4. Oh, I just love it. Red is my favorite color, and you did a great job with it. Your tea set is so pretty and so are those snack trays! Take care - Dawn @ We Call It

  5. Absolutely crazy, about those plaid place mats!! Your entire table is beautiful and I really do not think it would matter, which placemats you used! Darling salt and pepper shakers and stemware - everything is just perfect and I cannot wait to try that cobbler recipe!

  6. Love the tablescape. The red dishes are so pretty and everything goes so well together. Either place mat looks good. Red is my favorite color and have it in almost every room in the house.
    I am your newest follower.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. I like your final choice for September!! Love the napkins fanned out like that, they look great! I will be looking for those beautiful plaid placemats in another post! Those are really cute :)

  8. Your pink willow is gorgeous...very envious here. This table is beautiful.

  9. Your table looks so cozy and inviting. I really enjoy seeing how you change up the areas of your kitchen with each season or holiday. Thanks for sharing all your creativity! Love your blog.....


  10. What a great early Fall table! I love the Sna dP and the glasses that match so perfectly. The mats (both) are great! Now I have to go get that cobbler recipe!!!
