A Transitional Outdoor Table for 2

The first few signs of Fall are in the air. The mornings are cooler and the air is different somehow. I admit I LOVE Fall. Everything associated with Fall makes me happy: apples, cider, football, making the first batch of chili, fires out on the patio; it all is fabulous to me. Not to mention decorating for Fall! Pumpkins, mums, etc. Love it and am antsy to start but am enjoying the final dregs of summer. These evenings are beautiful and perfect for enjoying our dinner outside. So, I cut some flowers from the garden, placed them into a new pitcher and set a colorful table!!! It is not summery or Fallish  just "transitional", to me.
 I built the table around the colors of the salad plates. I chose the polka dotted pitcher and then realized there were dots all over!
 The edge of the dinner plate, the design on the salad plate.

 There are little dots on the edge of the green napkin too.
 I paired the green napkin with the patterned black and white to tie in with the pitcher and the iron base of the cement leaf.


 The green flatware compliments all the othere colors.

 I cut some limelight hydrangeas, zinnias, and purple stems of the butterfly bush.

 the hydrangeas are changing color now.
 The zinnias are so vibrant!


 I added the yellow bowls to bring out the yellow in the salad plate.
 We had a chopped Italian salad for dinner. I had mine with cranberry viniagrette and Joe had Italian dressing.


 Can you see the cranberries in the dressing? It was SO good!
 
Thanks for your visit. I will be joining these parties:

  1. Hello Pink,

    Happy Monday. I did feel that cooler air and fog this morning as I was driving to work. Fall is slowly making its spectacular appearance. I do love all the bright and pretty autumn colors and you have certainly put together a gorgeous pre-fall table. The blooms are inspiring.

    Have a great week.

  6. Signs of fall are here as well, and I am not ready! Your table would be a good one for any season, and I do like your patterned plates.
