Toile meets transferware on this particular set of salad plates, and the scenes depict various farm vehicles, from hay wagons to tractors. How charming is that for a fall theme?

That got me thinking about hay rides, country markets and farm breakfasts, And here we are, with sunflowers, roses, muffins aaaaannd…

a yellow pickup truck filled with miniature pumpkins and hay bales.


I had a hoot putting this table together.  The truck is an Etsy find. The pumpkins and hay bales are from Hobby Lobby.

I baked up a batch of Gingerbread Muffins to add to the fun.

The plates are Harvest Village Brown by Pier 1. I ordered two sets of four online and peculiarly, one box was short one plate, so I substituted a Wedgwood Aviary Brown plate and kept moving it around while doing the pictures. Mildly annoying, but not fatal.

I ended up returning the plates to Pier 1 as they couldn’t readily lay their hands on another set of four at our local store and I didn’t want to wait for another delivery. They are on super discount right now though, for anyone who is interested. Half price!

There are a couple of tractors.

And two horse drawn vehicles – a farm cart picking up pumpkins and a hay wagon.

I set them up with Cambria dinner plates in Celadon from Pottery Barn (also on sale right now) and used Acacia Wood Chargers for the base.

The flatware is Wooden Handled from World Market.

The amber water glasses are from Williams Sonoma many years ago, long discontinued, unfortunately.  

The Malta Bronze lanterns can still be had from Pottery Barn. I’ve had mine for aeons, and use them a lot.

The little wheelbarrow salt and peppers are also a Pottery Barn item; I got them many years ago. They’re an old friend.

The Plaid Twill Forest napkins from Pier 1 are getting their workout this year. They go with so many table settings!

Dig in and enjoy, everyone! Time for breakfast.
