Fall Tea Table

I know I've said it a lot lately ...but I just LOVE fall!!  The temperature has finally dropped down into the 50's at night and the sky is a beautiful blue hue that makes everything prettier! 

  One of my best friends surprised me with a package and to my delight it was a fall teapot!! 

Thanks Valerie!!

My little kitchen table is a perfect place for a  fall tea for two.  We love spiced chai tea and
it smells  so good!

I had found this pretty wire cloche for only $8 and just fell in love with the design and burgundy color!   Cloches just make me think of  Marty...the "cloche queen".  Marty is the reason I now love cloche's with all the weekly inspiration and ideas she shares!  I'm linking with her
this week.   Thanks Marty for being
such a  gracious hostess!! 

My table started with a yellow tablecloth that I purchased in a thrift store in Pacific Grove, California while on vacation.
The runner was clearance for $2 at Wal-Mart last year and I love the extra long length..I also use it on my large formal dining table as well. 

The pumpkin plates were purchased a few weeks ago at Wal-Mart for $3.00 each.   I layered them on
my favorite ivory Target plates for a fall look.

The scarecrow was on the 80% clearance aisle  at Hobby Lobby last year...I bought  several...after all ..they were almost free!!  I always buy holiday items off season..especially tablecloths..the savings are tremendous.  

The cups and saucers were purchased for 99 cents each at Goodwill.  They only had a set of two so into
my basket they went!

The small ceramic pumpkin was purchased at the Dollar Tree this year.

 I have collected lots of silk leaves and ornamental pumpkins and gourds over the years and accent with them all around my home.  I thought the windowsill needed a little something so I used a swag I made and just added some ornamentals.   

My flowers in the garden are revived with all this cool weather and are blooming again!  I love the view from my little kitchen window.  Someday (when all the kids are out of college) we plan on putting in a large bay window for an even better view of our garden ...a girl can dream but until then I enjoy my garden view.    

Enjoy your week and hope you take
 time to enjoy your favorite  cup of tea!

  7. Oh, I just love your table setting. You really have a lot of beautiful fall decorations. I have quite a few myself, but currently they are residing at my Mother's house because I'm having a fall wedding there this Saturday so I don't have as much around the house as normal. Seeing your decorations up make me want to hurry and get mine back and scatter them throughout the house.

  21. I love your tablescape! So pretty! And I L-O-V-E your cloche...can you share where you bought it?

  22. What a beautiful teapot! The table looks so fallish, and the view is very pretty! Today there is a little crisp to the air, it has be very warm and rainy. We don't have a speck of Fall color yet.
    Have a great weekend!

  23. Love your table! I almost picked up a few of those Pumpkin plates myself, they're so cute.
    Aren't you just loving the beautiful weather we've had? I am SO glad it is officially Fall and that we've got the weather to go along with it. I was so ready for summer to pass.


  24. Sonia I agree fall is wonderful! We just went for a long walk tonight and it was a crisp and pleasant 55 degrees. Perfect for walking.

    I adore your beautiful fall table. What a unique and very charming teapot. Everything is pretty and making me smile. The cloche is just precious too.

    Thank you for your kind visit and words on my ideas. My hubby liked all of the ideas and says we can do this. I'm still deciding. Yes, Alex is a 53' pilot in the USMC. My father was in the USAF as well and was a navigator. The military is a small world. I didn't know they were called Jolly Greens. Neat-o!

    Have a great week sweet friend.
    Warmly, ~Melissa :)
