Autumn Blessings

Welcome, dear friends! I am so excited that you are visiting today, because you are in for a real treat. Today, I’m joining several of my blogging friends to bring you our autumn tablescapes. Our hostess is the talented Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate. A list of all of the participants can be found at the end of this post.

With our temperatures being in the mid 90s with high humidity, I decided to move my tablescape to the breakfast area of my kitchen. I had every intention to do an outdoor tablesetting, but I just couldn’t handle the sweltering heat.

The pretty autumnal orange roses and sunflower was the inspiration for my tablescape. I adore the traditional fall color palette. The Country French tablecloth with colors of red, green, and yellow compliment the color scheme.

Each place setting consists of a green straw placemat for texture topped with a Mikasa English Countryside plate and cute pumpkin salad plate by Better Homes and Gardens. Rounding out the setting are French Country red napkins in a traditional pattern, Reed and Barton flatware, and Godinger Dublin crystal glasses.

Sweet friends, your visits and gracious comments always make my day. Be sure to visit the other tables on the blog hop. I know you will find lots of beautiful inspiration for your fall tables. Take care, and have a most blessed day!

  7. Shannon, Your table is so charming. It was so creative to surround the vase of flowers with the apples and eucalyptus. I was immediately drawn to it. Then my eye went to your apple plates.

    Have a lovely day and a wonderful week.

    Shannon, your tablescape is lovely, and it really speaks autumn to me. I'm crushing on your pretty place mats w/ woven edges. Would you care to disclose where you found them? I've never seen ones like that. Hugs!

  29. So pretty Shannon, very cozy and inviting. Your tablecloth is the perfect foundation for the pieces you've assembled. The plates are so pretty and I'd be tempted to use them often. Beautifully styled!

  30. Shannon, no need to burden yourself with the heat and humidity when the tablescape inside is as welcoming as any can be! I have those salad plates and I loved how they resembled the more expensive version by Pottery Barn. You've styled them beautifully with your textiles, and the centerpiece of food among the flowers is delightful. Happy September!

  31. Shannon, it has always been my desire to collect French-inspired tablecloths. I love the mixture of patterns like the napkins with your lovely tablecloth. I immediately feel that I am in the French countryside. It really blends beautifully with your lovely floral centerpiece with its bright pop of color and it is all tied together with the subtle sage green color and pumpkin plates. Although it might be very hot outdoors, I feel like I am in the midst of the scenic beauty of France seeing your lovely table. Stay cool.

  32. Shannon, your pumpkin plates are so pretty and I love your floral centerpiece–such a lovely fall tablescape! Pinned & tweeted! Happy Fall!

  33. Shannon, once again you have set a beautiful table. I love the colorful centerpiece and your darling plates. I understand about setting the table inside. And, today, it's poring cats and dogs.

  34. Shannon, your fall table is beautifully set for the upcoming season. Your floral centerpiece is so pretty, I like the way you adorned it with the eucalyptus and apples. I am with you in liking the traditional colors of fall, and you have captured that wonderfully with a French county flair! It is always fun to hop with you. I wish you cooler weather to enjoy!
