While the calendar says September, we’re still having summer weather, fortunately with some lower humidity. A teaser of fall-like temperatures are on the horizon for the weekend.
I set a transitional table reflecting the summer weather we’re still in the midst of and to enjoy the last of the summer annuals. Petunias~ still blooming after a long, hot summer and some fruits in season~ plums and local muscadine grapes from the Farmers Market.
I picked up these Royal Stafford plates a month ago at T. J. Maxx ~ each plate costing less than my former daily Grande Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte. I’ve traded my Starbucks habit for a dish one .;)
Originally thinking I would use them in the spring, I decided I could enjoy them now, accessorizing with amethyst goblets and napkins and using an assortment of deep rich purple & plum-colored fruits for a centerpiece. . . my favorite kind of centerpiece~ one you can eat later!
Petunias are scattered among the plums, red and champagne grapes and local black muscadines~ enjoying the flowers while they are still blooming.
My two-tier server used before here, is lined with salad savoy leaves for color and a foundation for the fruit.
