Are We Skipping August?




Nah...but Whisperwood Cottage is having a contest, and today is the last day!



They are looking for Fall Decor.

Don't worry, I know we have a whole month of August, and till Sept. 20th before Summer ends, I am not going to rush it.

An informal Fall dinner was had at this leafy table.  A wood lantern, nubby textured cloth, and Fall colored dishes and glasses set the scene.

A more formal dinner was served at this table, Fall wreaths adorn the white porcelain pumpkins.

We have to have some Fall foods for these autumn tables, and apple pie is one of my favorites!

  1. I love looking at your autumn tablescapes. Living in humid,hot,south Louisiana, I ALWAYS wish to skip Aug.(June,July,Sept. and about half of Oct.) I'm also crazy about acorns and noticed the first photo you posted had such a cute acorn fabric tablecloth. Autumn is the favorite season of most of the people I know- we are just sooooo happy to be rid of the oppressive heat of summer.

    1. Hi gmm! It does look like acorns on the fabric, but it isn't. Don't tell, ok? :)

    2. These eyes are over a half century old (is that considered "vintage" ?) and I guess they aren't as reliable as they once were. Really thought they were acorns. Cute nevertheless!!!!

  2. It is a bit early, but it does let your mind wander. I don't remember the copper and peach rose one. It's beautiful!!!

  3. It may be early, but I am ready for fall! It only takes a week of temps about 105 to convince me that I am ready!

  4. I am ALWAYS in a mood for fall, my season, I am more alive than at any other time, believe it! But I am NOT skipping August!! My birthday month. As far as talent scouting, with you and Alma in the running, no need for those scouts to look any further. xo

  9. Glad we're not skipping August! Whew. I still have stuff left to do on the old sand pail list. I probably won't get to it all anyway...
    Loved your peek into fall tablescaping, though. Fall is my favorite season. I'm just trying not to rush anything this year.

    I pinned one of your festive pie crusts. I still haven't done it, but I pinned it.

    Did you decided the theme for the challenge and I miss it?
    I agree with both of the ones I saw suggested. If we don't do back to school in August, I think we ought to consider it for September. We could expand it to college themed tables, etc.

  11. Kathleen, you are always amazing. I could never choose a favorite. But, those white pumpkins and that apple pie - gorgeous. Oh, and the copper table, too.♥

  12. Make summer go away....I can't have hot flashes and over 100 degree temps....I'm dying over here....Your pictures reminded me that fall will be here before you know it.....as soon as September hits we drop about 20 degrees......In any case hope your enjoying summer by the water....Sue

  13. Very pretty, but too soon for me!

  14. I should bite my tongue, but with the hot summer we've been having I'll actually look forward to crisp, cool temps again. I do love autumn - it's just what comes after that makes me shudder so I'll stick to summer for now after all.

  18. What a treat to revisit some of your glorious Fall tablescapes, loved them all.

  19. Kathleen, you are a master at tablescaping. Every one of these photos is just beautiful (of course, the apple pie has my mouth watering - it's a work of art with those pretty crust leaves on top). I love those plaid napkins. I think I remember those wreaths around the individual tureens. I loved them then, and I love them now. And that pretty summer table at the end is perfection too. You rock! laurie

  21. Still 90's during the day here but cool enough to open the windows at night. Your beautiful tables have me itching to get out the bins of fall decor but I'll wait. Not looking forward to the cold and snow we get in the fall here :-) thanks for sharing at the party this week Kathleen! I love seeing what you have to share :-)

  22. I love the lavender hue tablescape in your header photo, Kathleen. I've been traveling, but will be home tommorow. Lots to blog about once I get a chance -- family news, etc!
