Copper adds warmth and pairs beautifully with autumnal colors!

I love it polished to a high shine, hammered with texture or weathered and burnished to a warm patina.

    Absolutely stunning! I was always a hot summer girl but as I move through my 60’s I have become an Autumn loving gal. Safe to say I will never be a winter girl! I can’t imagine how relaxing it must be to sit by the lake eating dinner at one of your beautiful tables! Peace.

    I always enjoy your posts showcasing your past gorgeous creations. And since fall is our favorite season, I look forward to this email probably more than usual. Sigh…can’t wait to try to put one together after our heatwave subsides. Thanks for brightening my morning!

    How I love your table setting and so many of your table dishes. Fall is just such a beautiful scene of God’s awesome creativity, and I for one am so thankful.

    I love fall and your favorite Halloween season is coming up. Your photos are lovely.
    Beautiful harvest, autumn and fall tables to enjoy. I am so looking forward to seeing your fabulous fall table on Sept. 6th. Happy September May.

    Happy September, Mary! There is so much autumn eye candy in your round-up. I love every table, especially those that are lakeside and the pontoon picnic is perfect. Blooming pumpkins, fall dishware, and linens set the stage for my favorite season. It was 60 degrees early this morning! Have a lovely day!

    Hi Mary ~ cozy post and what is it about all these colors that just say fall is on the way ? I’m transitioning to some sunflowers 🌻 and apples 🍎 and a few pumpkins. We are going to the Keys for our 40th wedding anniversary then I will be full on autumn mode when I get home. Hugs, Dorinda

    Never know which of your tablescapes I love most but these Autumn settings are all so beautiful and this is my favorite time of year. This morning in N.C. is just perfect for doing some garden cleanup and maybe some porch decorating. Happy 😊 September.

    Oh, so many beautiful tables and centerpieces, so full of inspiring ideas! I love the George Eliot quote (and that delicious autumn tablescape, esp the florals). I do believe the softer side of autumn is one of my top favorites from you. It’s just so calming. Looking forward to next week and seeing what you bring to the table!

    If only fall could last a bit longer…sigh. I enjoyed this post so much I went out and clipped away in the garden to create a fresh centerpiece. The first photo of your post was the perfect inspiration! As a fellow boater I must add that the fall picnics on the boat are serene and a bit magical; my favorite time of year to be on the lake. All of the table settings are beautiful and are so representative of fall: a lit bit of something for everyone to enjoy. What a perfect way to start September. Happy Fall, Mary!
