Summer's Last Hurrah

Monday, September 19, 2016

Happy Monday, My Lovelies!  Is it turning cooler where you are?  It seems a bit cooler in the morning here in Central Alabama, but it's still hot with afternoon highs in the nineties!

Before the first day of Autumn on Thursday, I thought I'd set one last summertime table in our breakfast room.  Later in the week I'll begin putting out the pumpkins, squash, and acorns!

We're having burgers tonight!  That's what the giant platter's for.  I'm going to assemble them in the kitchen and serve them outside if it stops raining!  :/

Everything on the table is MacKenzie-Childs except the tablecloth (World Market) hurricane and candle (Pier 1),  and blue vase (Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic).

Have you decorated for autumn yet?  What about Halloween?

Until next time...
