    All of these tables deserve to be shared again and again, beautiful inspiration Mary! It’s too hot to dine Al Fresco, I will be setting my table inside!

      Oh my gosh, these are just all styled so well, Mary. I love the Delicious Lakeside (centerpiece), the WS old world tableware, the whimsy of Vicki Sawyer, the soft pallette of the lighter pumpkins and table setting, and all the rich colors you choose in your live arrangements. Can’t wait to see this year’s next week! Let’s hope the cooler temps start prevailing next week. I had to water plants today in the landscape. I think it was the first time my gauge showed DRY on most everything. Not that the cracked mulch & earth and were dead ringer clues….

    Mary, your posts are always a bright spot of my day! Your artistic floral designs reflect extraordinary aesthetics for color and design. I appreciate this collection of table scapes for it’s value as a gorgeous pictorial reference tool. Among all these beauties, your featured post arrangement of the heirloom pumpkin with burgundy, red, pinks, purples and green florals makes my knees weak. You’re the best!

    All your tables are an inspiration! I’m not ready for Fall yet. I’ll hold on to summer as long as possible. I understand those in the South are sick of the heat, but here on LI summer doesn’t come till June, it flies by.
    Hope all is well with you, Mary! I miss blogging but don’t seem to have enough time to get back into it.

      Mary, Fall can’t come soon enough for us! I think all of your Fall tablescapes and the bouquets are just beautiful. The colors are gorgeous. I enjoyed the round up with all the various stylings. I just can’t decorate for Fall until the weather is at least in the mid 70’s. Fall around here just isn’t long enough! I like your calendar regarding Fall that you posted awhile back. You are spot on! These high temps will wear you out. We’re projected to be in triple digits tomorrow and Friday. We were 99 today but well over 100 with the humidity which is wicked. Be careful please when going outside. Stay cool. Clara❤️

    So much beauty and inspiration! It makes my heart hurt to think you may be losing your tree that’s in the background of your lakeside tables. I hope it can be saved!

    Mary, every table is splendid in its autumn finery. The centerpieces are equally gorgeous on each tabletop! It was fun to click and view these fall tables once again. There would be no way I could possibly choose a favorite, each one is a favorite!

    These brutally hot days make me long even more for my favorite season. Happy Wednesday and stay cool 💛

    Thank you so much for this! I’m going to go back over each table setting and just dream😊 Here in Florida it’s just so hot, the only clue that it’s Fall is if we decorate for it. So I’ve been hiding inside in the a/c, putting away summer decor and slowly getting out the Fall stuff. Glad to know I’m not the only one with Fall on my mind!

    Here in the south it’s hard to even think about fall right now! These are all gorgeous! I love your tablescapes – it helps that I have English countryside dishes so I can definitely envision my own table when I see some of yours. I also have the clear French countryside glassware – and I have to tell you I am SO jealous of the colors. I look everywhere for the amber and the red but I haven’t been able to find them. So I live vicariously through your table settings!

  13. August 23, 2023 at 1:17 pm

    We are starting to feel the seasonal transition here in NW Pennsylvania. So this lovely fall inspiration is welcomed.
    I can not pick a favorite. I love each one. 🧡
    Enjoy the rest of your week my friend.

    Always an amazing array of gorgeous table settings! Like you, I am ready for fall and some crisp mornings. However, the temperature is hovering around 100 so for now I’ll have to enjoy fall through your posts. My daughter and I had a great discussion this week of “How early is too early to decorate for fall?”, so there’s still hope we’ll be graced with some early fall vibes. I’m ready for a deluge of fall posts from you; release the pumpkins and skeletons!

  18. August 24, 2023 at 9:01 am

    It’s so wonderful you have such a beautiful legacy to look back on…

  19. August 24, 2023 at 10:04 am

    Mary, each of your tables are gorgeous. So many choices, it is difficult to pick a favorite. Love seeing your pretty centerpieces and tablescapes by the lake. Lots of inspiration for your readers.

    Mary, your round-up of fall tables is simply stunning. You have done such a beautiful job with all these tablescapes and how lucky we are, as your readers, to see all your creativity. Just wow! I love them all but the tables with the lake in the background are definitely favorites. You have so many gorgeous flower arrangements. Thank you for sharing all this fabulous inspiration and I hope cooler days are headed your way.

  21. August 26, 2023 at 9:46 am

    Me, me, me, Mary, I’m beyond ready for Fall! Thanks for getting me in the mood, even though it’ll be awhile yet here. However, I can dream!

    Oh my! A feast for the eyes! Every tablescape is a true work of art! Thank you for your endless creativity. Fall is coming fast. I have seen a tree down the road already changing colors and while I love fall, I want a few more days of summer, but in the 70’s please. Happy weekend!
