The weather here this weekend was glorious – sunny and mild during the day, with the evenings getting that crisp fall feeling. If only Fall lasted longer! But, it’s not too chilly to entertain outside, so I decided to change things up and head outdoors in honor of today’s fall tablescape link party at The Lettered Cottage.
I used a lot of nature-inspired elements, and it made for a great look. I picked up a bunch of these gorgeous ruby-velvet looking flowers at a local farmer’s market, and they were a great inspiration point (although I can’t remember their name to save my life at the moment!).
Some mini-pumpkins are a must-have. I picked up some white ones too. So cute. I wanted some bigger ones, but they were selling them for 59 cents a pound. The little ones do just fine for now.
I can’t resist adding another photo of these ruby-red lovelies. They’re gorgeous! And the guy who sold them to me said that if you let them dry out, you can plant the seeds. I might need to add these beauties to my yard…
Are you planning any fall entertaining this season?

Hi, Jenny! I think the prediction was that pumpkins would be a bit pricier this year because of the drought. I don't know that we can expect the cost to go down much. 🙁 Are those bright ruby-red flowers cockscomb (a.k.a. brain celosia)? Whatever they are, the are fabulous all clustered together like that! I really like them with the brown ribbon!
