I made you some cupcakes but they didn't turn out well, sorry. I'll be remaking them into cake pops which will correct the problem, very dry. I have to find the recipe I used a few months back, it made absolutely delicious cupcakes.
I was so excited to put together my first truly fall tablescape! The trees outside are cooperating, some more than others, and providing a lovely display of fall colors.
I love these little critter candles and they certainly look right at home on my table.
We're going to do that, right?
You call it lazy, I call it preserving the delicate balance of mini-imitation gourds and leaves.
(I found the website of the company that makes the LED garland; sullivangift.com but I bought these at local kitchen store)
There are tiny faux pumpkins under each of the brown glasses. I tried to get a better picture but it just didn't work because the glass is dark and reflective. At the end of the post you'll see what my fall tablescape looked like last year, the picture of the pumpkin under glass was a bit more successful.
I love the little faux pumpkin & gourds. I'm going to look for some more once this kind of fall decor goes on sale.

And now the moment you've been waiting for... my fall tablescape from last year...
try to stay awake...
Isn't it thrilling! We all have to start somewhere and it has a certain charmingly simplicity but as I've discovered over the past few months I really like the cluttered table look much more.
In reading various blogs I know a lot of you were still dealing with temperatures in the 80's & 90's but I hope things have started to cool off for you. Even though the summer seemed very short here in the PNW, I'm happy to be able to (comfortably) wear my favorite sweatshirt and jeans again.
Here's hoping you're having a great day!
I'll be linking up to Tablescape Thursday* at Between Naps on the Porch, Seasonal Sunday's at The Tablescaper and Cuisine Kathleen.
