Saying Goodbye to Summer

Wow, I just never know how a tablescape will turn out.

Today's started out as an ode to fall and ended up as a goodbye to summer!

Thank You to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursday.

This week officially bid welcome to fall, although in my part of the country temperatures are still hovering in the muggy low 80's. So I gathered a smattering of left over summer flowers and created today's tablescape.

Please forgive the darker, grainier photos. the sun had been out all day up until the time I went to take pictures, but that is life...
All dressed up and no place to go!

The napkins get graced with pearls.



The last of our homegrown tomatoes...

The small clear glass votive holders were my thrift store find of the day! There were five of them including candles for .50 piece!

The center piece is simply maiden grass and day lilies!

Every table can benefit from a pop of color!


I love the shape of the little white pitcher.



As night falls..


Thank you for joining me for Tablescape Thursday.

Make sure you head on over to Between Naps on the Porch for inspiring ideas!


Join me tomorrow for Art Work Friday!

Sometimes a tablescape is a little like a book--they create themselves! I love your centerpiece-I always like grasses for their texture. I am envious that you saw sun today!

Very cozy and cute! I wish I'd grown tomatoes. My plant died in the heat.
