Plate, plate racks, pumpkins-Autumn Bliss

Hey welcome to my blog...if you are visiting because of Autumn Bliss make yourself at home!
I have visited many blogs because of the Fallish HOme Tours and Fall Parties there are. Visiting so
many blogs has not overloaded me it has just amazed me there are so many talented neighbors all
over the USA that are interested in the same things as most of us! Yay...how fun this is.
I  equally have gotten some amazing ideas over at Pinterest....which is Interest with a p in front of it. And it is like a bulletin board online that you save your favorite pictures that you are interested in. Recipes, tablescapes, fall decorations...oh my...it's like an online magazine of your favorite things! Yay once again!
I've seen a great deal of black and white and orange....sooooo....I found the orange salad plates....boxes of them which I only bought two...at Salvation Army. I added them to my collection and came up with this semi-Halloween tablescape.  
I hemmed the napkins, the tablecloth is just black and white checked fabric...the placemats are Christmas on the other side and black on this side...WHO KNEW?   

The lantern is from Home Goods and was on clearance because the glass was broken on 3 sides...WHO CARES?

Blurry goodies in my little jars all Halloweenish...

The easiest fall decor ever....is inexpensive trays from the thrift store spray painted in fallish colors and then stacked....love how easy this is.

White ironstone pitchers with the orange plates...ended up being too much for me and I took it down after I took the pictures.   hahahaha....I do love the color pumpkin though!
Thanks so much for coming by. 
Go here to see my other posts when you get the chance...
Be sure to visit THE NESTER and  THE INSPIRED ROOM  for more
Autumn goodness!
And I am also joining in with Marty for her wonderful Table Settings @ Table Top Tuesday

Wow the orange plates with the polka dots are a great combo! Lucky you finding them at S.A..I never see anything interesting at ours! I like your lantern (I bought one with glass missing too!) I love your pitcher collection. I have one all white one now and a similar rooster!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comment.

Really LOVELY Fall colors! The little ivy trailing down the side of the shelf is just the right touch to keep it soft. I love the entire look!

Great table scape! love all of your fall touches. So funny that you got overloaded by the orange and white ironstone, that happens to me all of the time. I tinker with things about a million times and still am not satisfied lol. Thanks so much for visiting.

The polka dots were the perfect touch. I think the whole thing looks great. I wouldn't have changed a thing.
