Tablescape Tuesday: Garden Patchwork

 ““Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:6‬ ‭

It’s almost like we hit the month of September and autumn just came right on in!  The past three days have been picture perfect with clear blue skies and cooler temperatures here in Northeast Alabama!  Of course, we have been outside taking in these most perfect temps…why stay indoors when you can walk out to near perfect weather?!  As promised more alfresco dinners!

 With the days getting shorter, the table in our garden becomes shaded by five o’clock!

Our Father has provided a colorful world for our enjoyment!  Autumn brings so many rich colors, so I join in the celebration with a color-filled table setting!

I was searching through a linen closet last week and happened to see this patchwork tablecloth.  It brings back so many blessed memories of my Mother.  I am guessing she made this for me 38 years ago and it became the inspiration for the table!  The colors are ideal for autumn!

The Vietri leaf bowl filled with potpourri served as the centerpiece!

With cooler temperatures, soup was on the menu!

The gorgeous light that autumn brings to our Appalachian foothills never fails to impress me!

 The stack includes white charger, mossy green dinner plate, and soup bowl with a fruit rim!

The shadows in the stemware made an interesting photo!

A pair of etched vases with burnt red stems add more color!

Rust colored napkins add a pop of solid to the patchwork cloth!

    Such a pretty patchwork cloth and a beautiful setting! My mother-in-law made a patchwork tablecloth for me as well many years ago except that mine is made of patches of calico in darker colors. I know what a labor of love these clothes are and yours is a treasure.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

    Those Appalachian foothills of yours are beautiful aren’t they. You do live in a pretty little corner of the world. I love your tablescape and love the pretty patchwork tablecloth your mum so lovingly stitched. ‘Tis a pleasure to visit your lovely blog via Stephanie’s ‘Roses of Inspiration’.

  7. I love the inspiration patchwork tablecloth that your mother made. I also love how you combined a summery and fall look together. Your Vietri leaf dish with potpourri made a perfect centerpiece! Love the pictures that include bits of your landscaping and home- beautiful!
