Lightly Seasoned. . .

Appearances of Autumn's arrival 
are beginning to catch my eye from our patio doors in 
On Crooked Creektt's Dining Room.

Leaves in the sweet gum tree are changing from hues of lush greens
to caramels and browns before making their descend to the ground.

Although "Mr. Ed" and I are still experiencing warm temperatures,
I put together a Summer~to~Autumn transitional tablescape
titled, Lightly Seasoned.

As a centerpiece,
I filled a cream colored urn with faux green, caramel and brown leaves,
similar to those filling our sweet gum tree, and a few faux green pears.

My over~sized crackle pears set off to one side
while three bronze mercury glass tea light blossoms 
randomly surround the center of the table.

The table runner is natural linen with embroidered oak leaves
in hues of browns, grays, golds with a hint of orange.

I chose natural hued linen place mats with natural linen cloth napkins
drawn up in a wrought iron rustic leaf napkin ring.

Ivory colored dinnerware,
paired with my Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf salad / dessert plates,
compliment my Lightly Seasoned transitional theme.

Our everyday clear bubble glass stemware 
paired with everyday Oneida flatware keep dutiful clean~up to a minimum.

Lightly Seasonedis currently the appropriate term for our meals
On Crooked Creektt. Recently, I've been stricken with digestive issues
and must eliminate many food choices and seasonings from my diet.

 Lightly Seasoned Menu 
Fresh Pear Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing
Chicken A La King
French Style Green Beans
Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls
Iced Tea / Water

As the caramel and brown sweet gum tree leaves begin their descend,
I'll be serving up Lightly Seasoned meals 
on our Summer~to~Autumn transitional tablescape.

Until next time. . .

Oh Pat, this is so pleasing to the eye and so easily transitions into fall. I love your choice of wording - caramel - and the use of the table runner (stunning!), along with the candlelight and Bordallo cabbage leaf plates. It really resonates with me - all of it, even your everyday items! Have a great week starting (with a menu like yours, how could it be anything but??).

The green of your plates is so pretty, almost like jade. Love the crisp white with your plates.

Lovely Pat. I always like seeing your pears. That's a pretty aerial shot. Our weather turned chilly today, out of the blue. I needed a sweater to get to church for the first time. I always need one for inside the church with it's A/C but the outside is delightful today.
