Outdoor Fall Tablescape

There are some of us that really love our Fall issue magazines. We keep them and drag them back out each year to study and savor; taking mental note on ideas that we each year translate into our own homes.  My Autumn publication stack just keeps getting bigger and bigger, and each year my favorite story and photo shoot will always be their outdoor Fall tablescapes and parties. So for the last two years I've gone all out and created an outdoors tablescape and setting that celebrates the season with a vintage party feel.

Departing from the party atmosphere of the last two years, I wanted a simple and quiet getaway by using all white, and neutrals, then letting the subtle beauty of nature complete the moment. Pumpkins, falling leaves, and bittersweet share the setting.

 I always enjoy this secluded spot on our patio, under a very large Japanese Maple.  My old iron bistro set became my stage for a quiet outdoors afternoon of enjoying the crisp air, beautiful leaves, and the company of a few squirrels and birds.

I wanted an elegant touch, so two of my Heisey goblets were chosen for their intricate lace pattern and delicate look. A chilled bottle of my favorite Riesling waits to be poured.

 On our recent trip to St. Louis I found this wonderful large ironstone soup tureen from England. Filled with a hearty stew, and with a loaf of crusty French bread, it's the perfect late afternoon supper. 

The sun started to peek thru the clouds, but the chilly wind let me know that November is just around the corner.

and a wicker flower gathering basket holding linen napkins,
some bittersweet and a white pumpkin complete the table.

what a perfect Fall afternoon

Hope you're savoring every moment of Fall,
