Welcome autumn!

gathering...

We were so lucky to have my sister and brother-in-law visit this weekend.  It called for a celebration.  The weather called for having it outside.  It was the perfect evening.  Dinner around this table always makes me happy.
We had our annual soup party.  Because we were a small group this year, we only had three kinds of soup, tortilla, albondigas, and chili (which I know is not officially a soup but it fit).
Unmatched vintage silverplate, a weathered crate, lanterns, plaid and pumpkins - these are a few of my favorite things.  Don't you love that one in the center?  All those bumps!
















Leaves are from our oak trees that won't change color until January.  Other things just gathered from the grocery and ground.                                                                                                                                                                                 





Dessert (apple pie, brownies and roasted marshmallows) around the firepit with the stars in the sky.  Oh, how I love this time of year!  I hope you are enjoying your autumn too.

There are some beautiful fall tablescapes at Between Naps on the Porch.

You definitely do the most gorgeous, creative and original tablescapes ever! (And I'm still basking in the joy of actually meeting you. For reals!)

Oh how I love YOUR table! I wish we could be eating outside but it is 54 degrees with VERY windy conditions. But we have had an exceptionally warm Fall so I am not complaining. I love your lanterns and that beautiful runner. The centerpiece is gorgeous, and yes, I love bumpy pumpkins:):) Have a beautiful weekend!!! I am hosting 9 ladies here tomorrow, then all the Fall will get put away and out comes Christmas:):)

What a great table- love the weathered crate and the pumpkins. The menu sounds like it was great. We're all bundled up here and waiting for snow although it's actually been warm (for us 60 deg.) lately and heading for the 20's by the weekend. Brr...
