*~* Fall is in the Air*~*

I just love the Fall season... decorating the table with berries and pumpkins
I had sworn off getting anymore roosters, but this one had to come home with me. He adds so much color to the tablescape...
I have some red and white dishes that I bought at the Charlotte Antique Mart... the vendor said that they came from a convent... it has leaves running around the perimeter. I paired it with my italian handpainted plates with fruit for an interesting mix...
Sometimes we eat on the 'breakfast bar", for a change of scenery...

This plate is "Home Sweet Home" An American Subject . Currier and Ives....


So much fun to play around with different little fall accents...

I made the napkins from dish towels and the white linnen ones with the peek-a-boo battenburg lace came from an antique store.
Have fun with your dishes and whip up some inspiring tablescapes!

All your pictures of the table/eating area are beautiful. I like how you put the napkins together.

If I had any pretty plates and decorations, maybe I'd try. Nah, my kids make too much of a daily mess on the table for this, but yours sure does look great. I LOVE that rooster! Gimme! Gimme!!!!!!!! He's soooooooooo gorgeous!

Justine :o )

I love it all! So pretty. I am so trying to accumulate more fall items so I can decorate and tablescape too. LOVE the cobalt blue accents.

All of your photos are fabulous. Such pretty dishes and, of course, I love your new rooster.
It is such fun to play around with dishes...thanks so much for showing this pretty breakfast bar, all decorated for fall....

The color mix here is great. Love the way you combined the different dishes.
So glad I was also able to see the post from last week. I didn't see all of them last Tuesday. It is a good thing I was eating my breakfast, a split toasted English muffin with melted cheese slices on top. That was some spread you had. Everything looked so delicious; if I hadn't already been stuffing my face, I would have had to shut down the computer and fixed something to eat. I really enjoyed both posts.

Hey! Well, it looks like you have been having fun this week! Oh, your home is all dressed up for fall and I love it! The way you have everything arranged is lovely and so creative....I know how much fun you had putting this all together. There's nothing more I'd rather do, than to dress up the home in a different attire! It keeps it fun and interesting. I get tired of things fast, so the change of seasons gives me a needed change and gives me a chance to look at different pretties! LOL! I love what you've done. Have a great week!
xoxo,
Queenie!
