Vintage Inspiration Friday # 9: Setting a Fall Table

I can't tell you how long I've wanted to do this,
and how badly I've wanted to share these photos
since the day I had this fun little outing.

Each year Country Living and Country Home Magazines
would put together these fantastic outdoor table settings for Fall;
those magical tables and settings
have been my inspiration for these photos.

Our subdivision is adjacent to a lovely large lake and park,
with many acres of picnic facilities, gorgeous landscaped hills,
dense forests full of deer, and bike and running paths...

The perfect place for an impromptu sunset dinner for two.

(notice the old ceiling tiles that I used for placemats?)

Thanks so much for sharing my fantasy...

You should have seen us rushing across the field
 trying to catch the last of the gorgeous light.
My husband with a dolly loaded with a table
 and my two newly painted chairs...
and a trash bag full of leaves
pilfered from our neighbor's gorgeous maple tree!
And me with the picnic basket and a load of other "junk"
under each arm.

We were quite the team. LOL!

When we got there we were both out of breath
and to my horror they had just mowed and mulched,
so not a leaf to be found.

That is why the leaves are only in front. ha ha!
right where we dumped them.
oh well,
we had a lot of fun!

Thanks so much for coming by,
hope you'll join in for
Vintage Inspiration Friday.
Any Inspiration is welcomed.

I'd love for you to grab the button and share with others
