Welcome Fall

Today is officially fall or autumn or whatever you want to call it and I say come on in!  Our temperatures are still in the high 90's and I guess this is called Indian summer, but I am so ready for cooler temperatures.  I'm itching to get back out to the garden and start trimming back before winter sets in.

Today I did four variations of this table.  I love these little fruit plates so much, I have had them hanging on my wall for umpteen years.  I promise next week to tell you what the maker's mark is on the back, but right now I'm lucky to get a post out today.  Believe me, you will see them again.
This week I paired my favorite green plates with gold chargers and amber stemware that was my mother's wedding crystal.  I brought out some red and green pears and placed them in this gorgeous amber bowl.
I love to use little stacks of books with ribbons tied around them.  I sat my little garden frog on these.  He's peaking out at us.
I also invited my little flying pig from the front porch.  He has his welcome sign ready to greet fall with a bang.
As for this bottle of red wine I put on the table, I don't even drink red wine, but I have been known to buy wine because I love the label.  I couldn't resist this one with the animal lawyers.  After all, I am a court reporter, and I this was too cute to pass up.  Isn't the label wonderful?
I used paper napkins today.  These are fabulous and so perfect for the season too. 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Fall everyone!

Just lovely tablescape. I don't know how you girls do it. I wonder if I could create some kind of junkie tablescape because that's really all I have. You girls are making me want to look for some pretty dishes. I really only have white and I'm thinking I need some color:)

High 90's?! Our heat is out this morning and it's 60 degrees INSIDE our house!

Lovely table setting! I love the graphic design of the wine label, too.

I'd be looking forward to Winter too if I could have a Southern California one!

Very pretty, Maggie! I'm picking up a Tuscan vibe, which is perfect for this time of year. I love Froggie's perch and the red-handled flatware.: )

Love this tablescape. True Indian Summer from the West coast to the East Coast. I am a recent retiree from the North Carolina Judicial System, working with judges, lawyers and court reporters every day, so i can appreciate the wine label. Ha!
