Soup's On Ya'll


I love the cooler weather we are having this week!  PERFECT for soup and it was on the menu plan.  I am delighted to feature more of my thrifty finds from our yard sale weekend and a stop this week in the Goodwill store on  Tablescape Thursday. Fix yourself a glass of sweet tea, pull up a chair and I will tell you how I decorated a shiny frugal autumn table.  Then you can stroll on over to Rhoda's Fall Inspiration Party for more ideas on fall decorating.

The centerpiece is my 'new' beautiful white soup tureen.  Isn't she elegant?!  A nice little elderly lady parted with her for the incredible price of $4.  Of course, I was tickled pink as she is my very first tureen!  I sat her in a newly spray painted black metal tray (Goodwill - $2.22) and surrounded her with (Dollar Tree) garland and gourds atop a festive table runner.(Ross - $4.99).  The prices are in parentheses, cause my Momma would just kill over to think a proper Southern daughter is disclosing such information to dignified folks as yourself.  So if you see the little curve ... you have the option to blink past the pricing.  *wink*

Of course my soup tureen fit for a queen should have her very own ladies in waiting to assist in the setting.

A cute little bird house (Goodwill $2.02) dressed in new black spray paint beside my yard sale find votive candles.


Complimenting the other side, a second lady in waiting, bird house decked out in new paint.  She also reigns from the Goodwill store ($1.21). 

When my Goodwill white dishes heard the Queen tureen was coming to dinner, they wanted to be included as chargers.  Dainty designed brown salad plates made their return visit in honor of the Queen's autumn reign.  Debuting for this setting are the green soup bowls speckled with brown (Ross) and previously purchased white yardsale napkins.  Completing the ensemble are my everyday silverware and (Dollar Tree) glass goblets. The only thing left to do is...

serve up Taco Soup (click for the recipe)!
MMm Mmm Good

I hope you enjoyed your visit around my thrifty royals.  Be sure to visit all of the fashionable tablescapes over at Between Naps on the Porch with our hostess Susan and stop by Rhoda's "It's Fall Ya'll" Party.

  23. Wonderful job combining TT and the fall party, Sherri!! I don't have a soup tureen so I can just imagine how you felt when you found one (and at that price~~~in case Mother is listening!!) It's beautiful. I also love the brown plates and the bowls. They look like you bought it all as a set!! You did great, girl!! And I want to thank you for always stopping by. I missed you when you were gone~so happy to have you back, Sherri!

    Happy Fall Y'All!!

  28. Great table! I have yet to acquire my first tureen... you got a great one! I'm not sure I'm quite ready myself for all this chilly weather (high of 51 at my house today!), but you're absolutely right about soup being a good response. Moroccan Chicken Soup is on my list for next week!
