Heart and Home: A Fall Tablescape

In honor of fall's arrival I've planned a little luncheon for you, my friends.

I thought we'd have a casual meal in the kitchen, overlooking the creek and the redwood trees. Of course I'll light the candles!

These sunflowers, fresh from the farmer's market, add a sunny touch to the table,

while the green and clear glassware, and crystal boboche sparkle in the clear afternoon light.

Pale green, and a touch of orange and yellow in the linens complements the colorful hand-painted rooster plates.

The colors create a warm and cozy ambiance, and set the mood for a lovely meal.

Come in and take a seat at the table,

enjoy the view,

Relax and be my guest

for a quiet luncheon celebrating the first days of Fall, here on the redwood coast.

Posted for Susan, and all my friends who love Tablescape Thursday, at BNOTP.
Until next time,
