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?

  2. Good morning, Bonnie. As a fellow Alabamian I understand the heat and humidity, but we did what we have to do (lol). Your table is beautiful and welcomes autumn to the South. I love both cloths, but if I have to choose, it would be the floral. The copper pitcher is perfect to hold your flowers, I don’t remember seeing it before. The cheetah plates really speak of fall and cooler weather. I love that you mixed the old and new, it makes for a stunning table. Finding the stemware for your MIL was a wonderful gift that I am sure she loved and treasured. Wishing you a lovely day!

    1. Thanks Pam. Honestly, I will have to look back about the copper pitcher. I know I used it for Garden Club last year but funny I can't remember on my blog. You don't usually use such the same dishes so soon in a blog post but you don't notice so much using different color linens and flowers.

  3. Bonnie, I love your mix of vintage and new pieces at your table! I’m a fan of mixing patterns so I especially love your floral tablecloth as contrast to the cheetah dinnerware. Your copper pitcher makes a beautiful vessel for your flowers and I love how you refreshed your centerpiece with the hydrangeas and pittosporum from your garden. It’s been so humid over the past month but we’ve had a reprieve over the weekend with the drop in the humidity and temperatures. Sadly, it’s a teaser as the heat and humidity are creeping back up this week. Happy to be hopping with you today. ♥
    P.S. You can upload a photo to Replacement’s website and they will try to identify your goblets for you. They’re almost always successful.

    1. So far the vote is going for the floral cloth. I like to mix patterns also so this was a fun table. I also like adding things from my garden to grocery store flowers. I think it softens and looks less like bought flowers.
      The humidity has been between 955 and 98% for a while. That is high!

  4. Ooh, Bonnie, I LOVE the floral cloth with your tablescape. I thought the painter's cloth was pretty too, but the floral is a wow! One would never know of the heat and humidity with seeing those beautiful flowers (well, ok, maybe the coleus, lol) and iced tea at the table. I love the leopard dishes as well. Isn't it great how the 70s and 80s can still work, especially in fall color themes? Love those avocado, golds, rusts and browns of the eras!

    I'll try to identify your glassware for you later. I would love to venture to Scott's Market (not sure if it's still the same as it was a decade or so ago, but still would love the experience).

    1. I am noticing who says iced tea and who say ice tea. Ice tea is definitely a deep south expression.
      I would love to meet at Scott's for a fun day too.I haven't been in ages.

  6. Bonnie, this is a gorgeous table!!! I absolutely love your new floral tablecloth, it really makes a beautiful backdrop for your fabulous table setting. What a wonderful mix of time and patterns, you did a spectacular job of pulling these items together to make an unusual fall table. It is always a pleasure hopping with you. I hope you enjoy this fall season! Take Care

    1. Ann, Thank you. It is fun to mix patterns and more fun when they really mesh. I really have had fun with the cheetah plates.

  7. What a delightful table, Bonnie. I especially love the copper and the sheaf of wheat. I always think of wheat for fall and always bring out my copper. Lovely!

    1. Jeanie, Thanks so much. I always think of wheat for fall also and copper seems to go nicely for fall as well.

  8. Such a pretty table Bonnie. I love the Cheetah plates. I am always drawn to animal print. The floral tablecloth is lovely. Using Painters cloth is also a nice look for change. The copper pitcher filled with a beautiful bouquet of colorful flowers takes center stage nicely. The goblets are lovely. Truly a beautiful fall table to welcome fall.

  9. It is WAY hot in Florida, too, Bonnie! I have a coleus that does the same thing almost daily. It is amazing how a good dose of water and it totally perks up! Isn't it amazing how you can use the same dishes and yet, style a table with a totally different look? I am in love with that beautiful tablecloth, it set the scene for your entire tablescape! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Chloe. I haven't gotten out much to shop but hubby and I took a little day trip and I got to go in Home Goods and I am so glad I bought the floral.

  10. I am wild {forgive the pun 😂} about your table Bonnie! The leopard print paired with copper, wheat, wood, flowers and feathers looks fantastic! Your garden setting is so pretty too, I know it was hot out there while you created this great table! I really like the two different looks you got by a couple of simple switches, gorgeous Bonnie!

  11. I have always loved animal print! One of my very first purchases to decorate a table years ago included zebra stripes and I've never looked back. These Cheetah dishes are divine! As always, you have a beautiful table. Hope you are doing well!

  12. Bonnie, I love the floral. You did a fabulous job of pulling everything together in this tabelscape. I love how the colors really set the cheetah plates off. The centerpiece is lovely and I love the story about you finding the glasses at Scott's. I'm sure your mother-in-law was thrilled with your surprise. Your garden is a lovely backdrop too. Yes, it has been hot! Beautiful table sweet friend.........

  13. Hi Bonnie! I love those cheetah dishes that you have. They are so versatile, aren't they? Your centerpiece is so pretty and I do love those goblets. If I had to choose, I think I'd go with the floral tablecloth. Happy September, Bonnie! It's still so hot here, too, and hard to think about Fall yet.

  14. Oh Bonnie, I love that leopard print china. Your autumn table set in your garden setting is gorgeous and looks like it belongs in a magazine. Your centerpiece in the copper pot is just gorgeous. Enjoy your week, sweet friend!

  15. Bonnie,this was such a delight for me to visit your beautiful Fall tablescape. I am in love with the way you incorporated different things together like you did. I am in awe at how those lovely cheetah dishes look so good with the different things you used. You always show me through your lovely tablescapes different ways to incorporate things. Oh girl, it has been hot here too but not too hot for me to begin enjoying some Fall flavored coffee. LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  16. I love your hammered copper pitcher with the leopard print. Your table is such a feast for the eyes. It has everything. I'm so glad you joined in the hop. I can't imagine being able to dine outside, but your table makes me think I want to.

    1. Barbara, the cheetah dishes came from Hobby Lobby. You know how fast they put things on sale so they went quickly.

  18. Oh Bonnie! Where do I start! Your centerpiece is stunning! I love everything about it! The feathers, the blooms and that gorgeous cooper pitcher. Even though you are not having autumn like temperatures, your table makes me feel like it is a cool fall day! Your cheetah print dishware make me want to run out and find some now! How wonderfully versatile they are.

  20. Bonnie, you are making it difficult to choose between two beautiful tablescapes. I love them both! The first tablescape with the striped orange and brown placemats work so nicely with the copper pitcher of the floral centerpiece. And in your second tablescape with the gorgeous tablecloth, it contrasts exquisitely with the cheetah plates and really makes the table pop too. I find them so striking since they are in such a lovely outdoor setting too. Both tables make a fine and elegant gathering. I hope you can enjoy it outside even though the temperatures are rather hot. Those cool beverages in the classic stemware should help. It is a pleasure to blog hop with you.

  22. I liked your table with the solid cloth, but I loved the table with the flowered cloth. Its exuberance plays off the cheetah plates (which are fab!) so much better. But isn't it nice to be able to have two versions to choose from?

    1. Yes, it is nice to have two versions. The floral cloth got the most votes on this post and on Instagram.
      Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment, Sandra.

  23. Bonnie, love your mix of florals in the copper pitcher, which is the perfect metal for fall. Including a little leopard print was a great idea. As always, your outdoor setting is beautiful ~ even if it is still hot.

    1. Thank you Carol for your sweet comment. I do like the copper pitcher and it will be used a lot this fall.
      It has cooled down and will be fall like next week here. Can't wait.

    1. Thank you Sandra, I've already started thinking about another cheetah tablescape. I have never done back to back posts with the same dishes. Who knew I would enjoy them so much.
      Thanks for you visit.
