Fall Tablescape

This Fall is something to celebrate, especially after such a HOT summer. I'm even hoping for a COLD winter with lots of snow so that all the mosquitoes will be gone and next summer there will be fewer of them. I don't know about you but  it seems like every time I go outside for  5 minutes, I come in with at least 3 mosquito bites. I'd put a long white sleeved shirt on if I was going out to work in the garden, but I always thought I could get away without being bitten if I was only going out for 5 minutes. 

WRONG!

Ah, but I digress...

I've changed up the Breakfast Table decor to incorporate more muted tones of blue and green, with some brown and orange thrown in for good measure.

I keep the Breakfast Table simple. 
Y'all know it doesn't have to be fancy or perfect to be beautiful, right? 
I used my second favorite salad plates that I found many years ago at Marshall's. The dinner plates are Mikasa, Italian Countryside. They go with everything. Gotta love that!

Just use whatever you have, and if you don't have much, take a walk out to your yard and see what pods or nuts are out there. Just remember to freeze any nuts you bring in for at least a week in order to kill any critters!

See, simple....not too cluttered.


There you have it....Fall in the Breakfast Room.
I'm looking forward to making chicken stew next week. What are you looking forward to this Fall?

    You asked about the stuffing I used for the pumpkins. You are right, I pulled it out of a pillow. I don't know where you buy this kind. it really is very soft. Hugs, Marty
