Hello everyone. Happy Monday! The weather is still warm here on the East Coast and that means that the open-air dining continues for us. And believe me, we are going to enjoy every second of warm weather. Winter is just too long!
This spot under our weeping willow tree provides plenty of shade while allowing enough of the sun to peek though the branches. It is the ideal backdrop for setting a cozy fall table alfresco on a casual Saturday evening. A picturesque spot for an intimate gathering with friends
The inspiration for this table were the colorful accent plates I chose for my place setting. Decorated with large flowers in orange and violet and detailed with elegant leaves and lavish gold accents. The burnt orange tablecloth allow the plates to stand out while the willow chargers add texture and contrast.
I always pay attention to the details – what I call the table jewelry. Copper drinking mugs and candle holders add a little bling and shimmer to the table.
And remember the seasonal touches such as pumpkins and flowers to give your table . For this table, I used a planted Celosia for height, dried hydrangeas from our garden, small pumpkins placed randomly to create my centerpiece.
Classic Black and White Gingham Plaid Pattern Napkins layered with add whimsy and a touch of country.
Isn’t this a lovely setting for dining with friends? I truly love the relaxed feel of the table – engaging and welcoming!
I hope I have inspired you to create your own cozy autumn table.
Wishing you a blessed and happy week.
