New Colors for Thursday Parties!

Welcome to my new colors!  I'm linking to Tablescape Thursday and Thrifty Thursday!   Make sure you click through their buttons on the left of my posts ... so you can see all the other posts.  As always, special thanks to our hostesses.

Here's a peek at the new color on our old house!  Our little brick ranch is 50 years old this year!  We've owned it over half that time and the shutters have always been blue ... some shade of blue!  Butterschotch gold is a vintage color ... and a big change for me, but I love it.  It is clearly a perfect autumn color ... but I already know what I'm going to do for Christmas, spring and summer decor on the porch!  Thought that through before I chose the color!  I know I'm goofy, but we have to be prepared!

You're about to view a collage of a cake and coffee tablescape on the front porch!  The sunflower plates and mugs came from GW and they were just $3 ... can you believe that?   The green glasses came from a garage sale, but they were free!  I bought a doll collection, which you will see in future tablescapes and the gal threw the glasses in for free!  You know by now that I don't need the things that I buy at GW or junking ...  and chances are they will go back to GW in a year for somebody else to buy and enjoy.  I enjoy the hunt.

The forks are from a set of flatware from Pier1 and the rust napkins came from Old Time Pottery.  When I have the cute decorative boxes from sets of tableware, I frequently use them on the tables.   I'll be setting a cake in an old avacado green platter on top of the boxes!  Hope you enjoy!  Make sure you click through to the party hostesses and click through to visit my website and see the details about my Autumn Affairs Cookbook ... I can ship it anyplace ... just $18 includes the shipping.

  8. Hi Debbie...

    First of all...I would just like to say that I love your new butterscotch gold shutters! That's a gorgeous color! Your autumn table looks so beautiful! I loved that you decorated the little shelf under the table with autumn pretties...that's awesome! They looked beautiful when looking down through the table glass! Love, love, LOVE your sunflower plates and cups! I liked that each of the backgrounds on the plates was a different color! Very vibrant and festive! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely autumn table with us! You have a beautiful view!

    Warmest autumn wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design
