Autumn Fancy


Hello friends and welcome to a Fall Tablescape Blog Hop sponsored by Chloe Crabtree@Celebrate and Decorate and Andrea Hundley@ Design Morsels.
 Join me in the garden for a touch of fall this September. Our temperatures here in my garden do not feel like fall but there is cold ice tea to help you cool off while you scroll.

I'm mixing vintage and new with 70's or 80's placemats, 40's goblets, vintage napkins, and new cheetah dishes. My tablecloth is a painters cloth.

My centerpiece is a mixture of grocery store flowers with some pods and feathers added placed in a copper pitcher with a gold handle. The gold handle ties in the gold cutlery.

I loved the mixture of pinks, yellows, and oranges with a little green for the flowers.

The goblets are from the 1940s. I found these glasses at Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta for my mother-in-law a long time ago. She had a few pieces and talked about hoping to find more. At that time, I went to Scott's fairly often and was so excited to find several sizes in a set of eight. I could not wait to give them to her for Christmas because I knew it would be a wonderful surprise. I wish I knew the name of the pattern and if anyone knows please let me know.

I did a summer tablescape with these same dishes in July. It looks so different using other colors and flowers.

Surprise. Fast forward a few days and I found this tablecloth and wanted to give it a whirl. 
My wilted coleus in the background look just like I did setting this alfresco table. Ladies, it is hot in Alabama!

After four days some of the flowers were spent so to fill in I added limelights and pittosporum from my garden.

Which look suits your Autumn fancy? Floral or solid cloth?
