On The Eve Of Fall!


The inspiration for this week's table was the beautiful rich colors of the tablecloth. I pulled out the gold and purples. The natural thing for a centerpiece was a tray of grapes and fruits.

Since tomorrow is the first day of Fall and it has been a little cooler here, I'd say this is apropos as well as beautiful. Love the purples. The tablecloth is gorgeous and the centerpiece is so fitting.

Everything just goes together perfectly! I just love the golds and purples together. I wouldn't think of them as autumn, but with that tablecloth they definitely look fallish...

Love you,
Jude
