  9. Autumn Table Setting for...

Need some inspiration to get your home ready for Fall? In addition to the Autumn Table Setting that I am sharing, there are links to 28 other bloggers and their brilliant, fall-inspired ideas.

What better way to prepare for the first day of Fall than with weeklong Fall Fest!

I am thrilled to be joining my friend Angie, Postcards from the Ridge, in her 5th Annual Fall Ideas Tour! This year we have 29 home bloggers  sharing their favorite ideas for mantels, tables, and porches, as well as some wreath and DIY/craft ideas. Every day has a different topic so you’ll want to see what’s new each day.

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see a sneak peek of their ideas!

So, I remember when I was younger, my mom and her friends would have ‘coffees’ at each other’s home from time to time. Simple treats and coffee or tea were all that was needed to encourage fellowship among this group of young moms. 

I love that idea and have decided that I want to make an effort to reintroduce this ‘coffee’ idea with small groups of my friends. So, welcome my friends! Grab a muffin or a scone and a cup of tea, coffe or cider and let’s catch up!

Some of these links may be affiliate links and I may earn a small commission off of the sale of these products to help defray the costs of operating this site, but the price you are charged is not affected. You can see my full disclosure policy here.

I ‘shopped’ my house for every single piece of this table. I purchased the Pumpkin Harvest plates last year and was looking forward to using them again this year. They are perfect for my Autumn Table Setting and will get regular use from now through Thanksgiving.

 

I picked up the small milk bottles several years ago in various antique stores while on a wedding anniversary trip up through New York state. They get used throughout the year, holding wheat stalks in the fall and zinnias in the summer.

The copper mugs were also purchased last year from World Market. They have been used for warm cider in the fall and Moscow Mules in the summer! Apples, thinly sliced with my mandoline, are a perfect addition to mugs filled with cider. Just make a thin, 1/8″ wide, cut halfway through your apple slices to let them easily sit on the rim of your mug.

Of course at ‘a coffee’ you expect…coffee. But, I’m also serving tea and spiced cider today! This recipe for Mulling Spices makes it easy to prepare spiced cider anytime.

These pumpkin cookie cutters make the perfect napkin rings. I knew all those cookie cutters would come in handy someday! I couldn’t even tell you where or when I found that white ceramic pumpkin…but it is a handy piece come fall. And I purchased the rust linen runner and napkins during my Williams-Sonoma employment days. 

I agree, these Apple Cider Muffins really are tasty! And yes, their Apple Filling center is a lovely surprise and makes them all the more perfect as a fall treat with a cup of coffee or tea. Make sure you grab the recipe before you head out.

    What a lovely table, Lynn! As I was reading, I kept thinking to myself, “What a great idea” as a read and scrolled through your post. Using cookie cutters as napkin rings is such a good idea. I have so many cookie cutters for various holidays and your idea is another way to really enjoy them. I also have several glass milk bottles that I’ve never used. I need to pull them out and start using them for flowers. I really enjoyed your table!

    My mother also used to host or go to friends’ homes for “coffees”. I remember she would get out the china and make something small but yummy. They would sit and chat for a couple of hours while sipping and snacking. Your setup is perfect for coffee/tea/cider and I’m going to have to try some of your recipes. Love the plates, copper, and rust linen pieces. Glad you’re on tour with us again!

    I love that you are resurrecting “coffee time” in a virtual kind of way. Those cookie cutter napkin rings are genius! I may have to steal that idea the next time I set my table.

      I hope you do ‘steal’ the idea! It’s a fun idea. I am always on the lookout for vintage cookie cutters and now I have another way to use them.

    Oddly I socialized more over coffee when I was a young mom…. no internet and stuck in one spot probably feeding babies, and you should reintroduce it, it was relaxing, and a good reason to set a pretty table!

    I love the wheat, I think it creates a quintessential fall look. Perfect for the harvest feeling and embracing abundance for this time of year.

      So right about the wheat! It is so easy to use, but unfortunately, my cat can’t seem to get enough of it!

    I remember those days of my Mom always having fresh baked goods at the ready for impromptu coffee visits. Your post brought back fond memories! Love your idea of using fall cookie cutters for napkin rings – might use that idea for my Thanksgiving table next month (Canadian). Thanks for the recipes 🙂
