Orange & Blue For Autumn

I can't not talk about orange and blue. What a great color combination! And not only that, what a great way to display your blue and white china but with some orange pumpkins or gourds during autumn. 

Whether you collect blue English transferware, Blue Willow china, or my favorite—amazing Flow Blue china— autumn is one of the best times of the year to show off your blue china by pairing it with the warm orange and yellow tones of the season. 

Right now I have the plate shown here (flea market find, two for $4!) displayed on a table with a few mini pumpkins on top. And that's it—plain and simple, no froufrou, no glitter, no ribbons, no magic dust, just a mini celebration of color. As a matter of fact, if I were going to add anything else at all to this look, it would be a bed of two or three fall-colored autumn leaves below the pumpkins, and that's it. 

I love looking at and being inspired by amazing and creative tablescapes (and I have a new blog post coming soon showing a few of my favorites!), but to tell you the truth, they're really not my personal style for my own home. 

Unless I am dressing up my table for a one-time special event such as Thanksgiving, I keep my table pretty much straightforward and simple. Sometimes I just don't have the time to put into it, or the extra money to spend on it! 

Plus, the more stuff I put on my table, the more nosy my cat gets - and he has to take a really close look at everything. 

How do you decorate your table for fall?

Have a great week!
