GOODBYE SUMMER...HELLO FALL ON THE FARMHOUSE TABLE!



I married the darling in November.
The year was 1972.
Our wedding colors were shades of Blush and Bashful...
always my favorites!
Today,
I would select the colors of autumn...
deep pumpkin, olive green and eggplant.....
those colors would be just gorgeous for a fall wedding!


The Divine Miss M is coming for a visit...
just by herself!
We cannot even remember when the last time was that
we got to enjoy her without our adorable Luke
and
handsome Jay.
It is a huge treat to us!
As a parent, we treasure "alone time"
with each of our four children!

To welcome her home....
I transitioned the farmhouse table from summer
into just a touch of fall!


I just loved the color and size
of these new placemats from
The Better Homes and Garden collection.
I knew when I found them, that these were just
the colors I would like to use for September!


This is not an elaborate setting...just easy,,,,,,


Don't you just LOVE using new coffee mugs
in the morning that can reflect the seasons?
I bought these a few years ago at Costco
and they are absolutely darling with the new placemats!


 I have wanted a set of
The Pioneer Woman's goblets for some time!
I simply adore these glasses.....
they are going to be perfect for the new
Christmas dinnerware set too!


I think everyone so appreciates someone
showing they make a little special effort
when welcoming you to their home!
Miss M always has fresh flowers to greet us!


I cannot tell you how excited we are!
I would love to hear how YOU are
revealing fall in your home!

  1. Your table is beautiful and the one who will soon be seated there is far more so. I know that you will delight in that visit. I recently took my children out for breakfast, just the two of them (my daughter-in-law and grands were visiting relatives out of state). Well it was so pleasant. And to think you have more time than that!

  2. Your table setting is great. I love that you mixed up the mugs. I do like the colors. I love our family gatherings...but yes, I enjoy private time with each of my daughters. I feel it's good for the children also. Blessings, have a fun filled week. xoxo, Susie

  3. I love your tablescape! The colors of the chrysanthemums are just exquisite. I loved when my grands came and miss not going the extra mile every day. Enjoy your visit! XOXO

  5. Betsy, I'm so happy for you to have one on one time with your daughter. That is so special. Our daughter will be coming for a visit soon and we're excited as well. Your daughter will love the special touches you are adding to your lovely table. I adore that owl mug--He is a great one to welcome the new day. ♥
