Autumn Outside

Autumn 039

Welcome to The Tablescaper.

Autumn 017

I thought that since the weather was feeling warm, despite the calendar saying it was October, I’d try for one last table outside.

Fall 075

It was warm enough, however…

Autumn 028

…I kept darting and dashing between the rain drops. Believe it or not, this is the third set of towels cum napkins that I used. They kept getting wet.

Autumn 031

You see, it wasn’t a down pour, just a few drops and…

Autumn 024

…it would stop. You’d think you were safe (check out the drops on the pillow)…

Fall 077

…and then it would start in again (you can see more drops on the steps beside the table).

Autumn 025

Fall is such an amazing time of year. The weather can be all over the map, but we’re inclined to start gathering the harvest…

Autumn 016

…and snuggling in.

Autumn 020

Since we’re going to be cooped up indoors…

Autumn 022

…for the rest of the year, I thought it would be a great time to…

Fall 074

…light up all of the candles and…

Autumn 014

…take advantage of the mild weather.

Copy of Autumn 044

Hope that you’re eeking out every bit of the mild weather before old man winter hits.

Autumn 039

I love Autumn Outside. We have mild weather, so outside is still enjoyable. Your Fall table is delightful and inspiring. Love all the pumpkins, including the candles.

Autumn is my favorite time for having bbq's or outside parties during the day, unless it is a little too chilly. Love this tablescape, my fav colors in my fav season. See you Sunday! ;-) xo

Nancy said...

Warm and cozy! I love being outside in the Fall, by a fire, with a cup of something warm to drink. This is so inviting...wish I were there! ;-)

What a cozy spot to enjoy a hot toddy! Alas, we are all so going to miss our yards during winter!

Sanghamitra Bhattacherjee(Mukherjee) said...

Gorgeous autumn table! Love those warm colours. Very inviting setting. Thanks for sharing.
Hope to see you on my blog:)

Alycia Nichols said...

At least you're getting some rain, however sparse! It is dry as the Sahara here. We've not had a drop in nearly a month!!! Keeping our fingers crossed for a little of the wet stuff next week. As for outdoor tables, I do them outdoors until there's an ice storm! ;-) I have done dinner parties on the deck in 40 degree weather with a heat blower going and soft blankets at each person's place setting. There's a coziness about it with the smell of fireplaces going, the sound of neighbors crunching around on leaves in their yards, the rich fall colors in the trees...I love it! As long as no one complains, I'll keep doing it! Despite the raindrops, this is a very pretty setting, rich with so many wonderful fall elements! Beautiful!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

So true about the weather! I love the mild tones of color on this table. So mellow and inviting. I'm crazy about those leaf plates too!

Oh, what we will do for our art! What are a few raindrops when one has decorating to do?

Happy fall!

Fall is my favorite season and the opportunity to dine alfresco is one of the reasons. Your setting looks comfy and inviting despite the sprinkles. Thanks for sharing. ~ Sarah

Daphne said...

What a cozy dining nook! I love how the orange pops against the wicker. Congrats on getting your photos despite the weather!

Gatsbys Gardens said...

This looks wonderful! Sometimes it is more enjoyable in the fall to be outside than the summer.

Debbie@Mountain Breaths said...

Let's enjoy the beautiful weather as long as we can! I love how you have fluffed by using the orange pillows on the love seat. Hoping the beautiful autumn weather stays around a while longer.

Carol said...

Beautiful outdoor decor! So pretty in spite of the rain. Finally cleared and it's getting that chill in the air. Except I still have the summer flowers, the impatiens are hanging on and I am so ready for mums!

lulumusing said...

This morning we woke to our first temp in the 30's so outside dining may be done until next year. I'm glad you managed a last table. It looks perfect for outdoors.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Girl you rock..I'm so glad you stuck it out to be able to share your warm and welcoming space with us. I love the use of your lanterns. I hope your fallish weather is continuing for you. hugs ~lynne~

swedecollection said...

Those orange pillows really pull it all together. Love the orange votives and the leaf plates as well. Summer

Sue said...

Despite the raindrops, you've set a wonderful tablescape. We've been entertaining outside ever since the backyard got finished. It is so nice to be enjoying favorable weather. Seeing your pillows made me think that I need to run off to the store to find some autumn inspired ones. Love those lanterns, A.
~ Sue

Carrie said...

Your warm and welcoming setting is just perfect for enjoying the last of our warm weather outdoors!

Entertaining Women said...

I could spend a whole evening cozied up on your settee...I wouldn't even mind a few rain drops. We're still praying for rain here...hopefully some is coming this weekend. This is OU/Texas weekend...it will be quiet around here for a few days....everyone and their dog is gone. Do you remember that from your time here? Thank you for sharing your delightful design. Cherry Kay

A Perfect Setting said...

Hopefully you have sunshine headed your way. Today was beautiful here in VA, but I feel that we deserve it after so much rain! Your outside decorations are so pretty, and the table is warm and inviting! Your leaf plates are great.

Emreen said...

Your patio looks great and inspiring me to do something besides a centerpiece on the table. Love your leaf plates and lanterns. Everything looks great in spite of the rain drops.Don't you hate that it's trying to rain when you're phototgraphing an outdoor scape?
Happy Fall.
