Mums Lead the Way to Fall

September has arrived, a bridge between summer and fall. And leading the way towards fall are the glorious mums blooming in gardens and yards! I couldn’t resist following them so I set a table with a beautiful bouquet as the centerpiece.

A Wisteria Garden Table

Welcome! Come join me in the garden room where I've styled a table built around the beautiful wisteria-patterned tablecloth that I received from my husband and my daughter for my birthday. A garden inspired table is always a delight to set, especially this summer when it's just been too hot to actually dine on the deck or patio. 
 
The tablecloth has an off-white background, covered with trailing vines. The wisteria blossoms are done in pretty shades of blue and lavender/lilac. The tablecloth is accompanied by linen napkins in a lovely cornflower blue which they also gave me.

A Tropical Beach Tray: Dreaming of Travel

Where do you dream of traveling to? Top of the list for my husband is a beach — the more tropical the better! So I styled a tray to tide him over until we get the chance to vacation at the beach!

Summertime Blossoms on the Table

I'm delighted that you're joining me today for a tablescape that captures the feel of early summer starring summertime blossoms!

  
I found my inspiration in lovely vibrant linens that I purchased back in February when spring — not to mention summer! — seemed far away.
