Blue Willow & A Floral Pumpkin Centerpiece for an Autumn Table

Welcome to the 472nd Tablescape Thursday! We've decided to skip fall and winter here in Georgia this year. As you can see, the trees are still green and leafy in my back yard, and yesterday was in the 80's. Today we'll reach 85! I'm really not complaining, though. I love summer and love the heat. I wonder when fall arrives, if it will just hit all at once and all the leaves will change and fall off the … [Read more...]

Dinner in a Country Lodge

Welcome to the 469th Tablescape Thursday! It's still warm here in Georgia, but some David Carter Brown plates I purchased recently have put me in the mood for a bit of fall fun.   I almost placed this table setting in the dining room since it has more of an autumn feel with its red walls.   But in the end I decided to stay on the porch since it was so nice out with temps in … [Read more...]

A Woodland Table Celebrating the Beauty of the Northwoods Forest

Welcome to the 416th Tablescape Thursday! We're still having beautiful weather in the 80's each day, but the table I set for this week has more of an autumn feel.   Have you been wondering what's happened to the seat cushions I normally have on the chairs around the table?

Autumn Table Setting with Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Welcome to the 372nd Tablescape Thursday! I've heard a rumor that there's this thing called "sunshine." It's supposed to be really bright, but I think it may be just a myth. How is it in your part of the world? I hope you're seeing some sunny days. If I don't start seeing some pretty soon, I'm going to have to buy one of those light machines like Police Chief Celia Bachelor used in the show, Men in … [Read more...]

A Table Setting to Welcome Autumn

Welcome to the 4th Tablescape Tuesday! Fall is definitely in the air here in the Atlanta area. I blew all the leaves off the deck on Saturday and was shocked to see how many more had accumulated by Sunday morning. This will be my first fall on the porch, since the porch was just finished in early spring. So you know what that means...time to go shopping for some fall goodies for the porch, including fall … [Read more...]
