Golden Hued Tablescape. . .

While the Summer rains continue here On Crooked Creektt,
I continue to bring a touch of Autumn to our dining room
with this golden hued tablescape.

One of my favorite blossoms from the garden
is that of a pumpkin blossom! 

This faux pumpkin blossom, in its previous life, was a swag.
Wanting to use this vibrant orange blossom in my centerpiece,
I took sections of the swag apart and used them as sprigs
inside a Terra Cotta clay pot and saucer.

My golden hued tablescape 
began with a soft, buttery yellow damask  circular tablecloth.
My Chili Pepper golden hued dinnerware rimmed in brown
rest atop orange floral scalloped quilted place mats. 

Our everyday beaded stainless flatware
and everyday clear bubble stemware 
keep a simplistic place setting for our daily meals.

The co~ordinating paisley print napkin
is gathered within a wooden napkin ring.

A golden hued cloth napkin, set on the diagonal,
further grounds the centerpiece 
and brings in a bit more of Autumns rich tones.

Beneath the centerpiece,
are two handmade star shaped trivets.
I purchased these at a Craft Fair Booth last Autumn.
They are perfect for sitting beneath a hot serving dish or platter.

The Summer shower has subsided for the moment.
Beyond the patio doors, 
the sun is shining brightly upon the Gardens On Crooked Creektt.

"Mr. Ed" was able to snap a few photos of the Pumpkin blossoms
from his experimental  Container Garden earlier this morning.

Once again,
Mother Nature has provided the inspiration for simplistic dining.
