Happy Thursday! I’m at the table with botanical fruits and dining alfresco in celebration of my favorite season!
An Autumn Harvest Fruits Tablecloth provided a foundation for the table.
And an wood pedestal adorned with acorns, elevates a medley of fruit, including pumpkins, as well as leaves and hydrangeas. . .
Making an easy 5-minute centerpiece for the table.
Mother Nature has yet to get the fall memo here in North Carolina with our summer-like weather, but the Autumn Blaze Maple is showing the first bit of color.
I collected a few maple leaves to add to the placesettings and tuck in the centerpiece among the fruit.
A set of four Botanical Fall Fruits Plates provided the inspiration for the table. . .
With Pears, Figs, Grapes and Olives.
Botanical Fruit salad plates are layered on Mikasa English Countryside dinner plates, with an embossed fruit and lattice borders.
They’re served up on tree slice chargers, paired with bone-handled flatware, for an organic touch and to add some warm texture to the table.

“Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.”
