FABBY: My Fall Breakfast Room

Hello sweet friends!

I started a little Fall right in our breakfast room, specially cause this part of the house is where we spend so much time during the day, along with the kitchen and our bedroom.

 I usually pass by these three rooms, back and forth all day long and so I like to see the buffets and the round table in the breakfast area, sort of different most of the time and at present it's got a Fall mood.

I also fixed the breakfast table for a Monday's lunch for four with my Oriental vintage bone china dishes and I will start by serving Cream of Pumpkin soup.

I will of course, be changing around the vignettes with my tool box and dough bowl until I get to the Christmas  season.

Meanwhile let's enjoy a little Fall with some orange and a few little gourds.

Welcome Fall 2015 my dear friends.

I hope some of you are having cooler weather at your neck of the woods.

I did some moving around here at my antique Belgium buffet; using ducks, mercury glass and silver pumpkins... and in center stage my beautiful Shannon crystal stand, I bought a couple of months ago... some of you might remember.

While shopping for containers for my pantry last month I ran into this cute wire fruit basket, now as a Fall arranged centerpiece for my table.

My daughter Alex brought me from Miami a box of three cute white owl votives.

In the frame it says "Welcome Fall, The Season of giving Thanks."


Orange Portuguese glass candle holders and a setting for tea time.

I have set Thanksgiving tables over the years with this vintage Oriental dishes with orange flowers and butterflies; paired with orange rimmed plates.

Some more cute white owls here from my daughter Alex.

Love the pretty mercury glass pumpkin my sweet daughter Alex just gifted me from Miami.

These Oriental vintage dishes are so light, because is 'bone china'... with such a translucent porcelain and it's lovely how you can see through the teacups, specially.

I bought this china from a lady very many years ago and it's a full set for eight place settings.

The sterling antique heirloom bowls are holding white pinecones I painted two years ago. One on each side of the buffet.
Ready for a Monday Fall luncheon,
starting with a 'Cream of Pumpkin soup' we love.
Metal soft yellow sunflower napkin holders and small dessert bowls too.

At your left on the floor lots of leaves from my indoor plants I forgot to pick up, so now we can say there's also 'fallen' leaves indoors, lol..

Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

  17. Everything you do is so elegant and pretty. I love the little owls, and the mercury glass pumpkins add just the right sparkle to your elegant vignette!

    I like your message. Autumn is the season for giving thanks!


  18. Dearest Fabby,
    Loved this post and you end with a great dose of humor about the fallen leaves.
    Isn't it the truth though when we take pictures we only notice those beauty flaws when they're uploaded onto our screen...
    Your Belgian buffet has been showing us many lovely faces over the years.
    This setting is a very pretty one; like all others.

  19. I *adore* your fall touches, Fabby - and your china is perfect for the season!

    Your mercury pumpkins are especially pretty, too! Hugs! ♥

  20. Bonjour chère amie,

    Je suis très heureuse de te retrouver... Cet été je n'étais pas très présente sur les blogs !
    Je découvre avec ravissement de magnifiques photos. L'automne est à l'honneur.
    Je t'avouerai que je n'aime pas particulièrement cette saison qui me rend mélancolique. Pourtant les couleurs de l'automne sont belles mais je sais qu'elles vont mourir...
    Cependant tu as mis très en valeur ton intérieur et il y règne une sorte de fête joyeuse ce qui me réjouit.
    J'aime beaucoup le cadeau que t'a fait ta fille. Ces petites chouettes sont charmantes.
    Ta citrouille est également sublime.
    Ton service à thé incite à une belle pause pour une dégustation agréable...

    Je t'embrasse affectueusement,
    Gros bisous ☼
