Fall in the Rose Garden

Now that the weather has cooled down, my rose garden is putting on  a  gorgeous early fall display of flowers.   I cut a fresh bouquet this morning and thought I would put together a fall tablescape
The dishes that I chose have pretty pink roses on them (of course!) but they also have some warm fall colors too!

I have the table set for H and I to enjoy our lunch today.   

The plates have a hint of fall and I placed a pumpkin at each place setting to add another touch of fall,

I placed the roses in milk glass vases.....

The roses with 80-120 petals are my favorite, but I love them all.

There was only one white rose, but isn't it gorgeous!  I don't know if you can tell how large it's almost 4" across.

I have a cute little "pumpkin head" couple joining us for lunch....

This is the boy...a close up of the girl is at the beginning of the post.
I had to wear a sweater to the yard sales Saturday morning, but it was nice and warm in the afternoon (70's)  None of the leaves have changed colors yet, but there is a "feel of fall" in the air.....til next time....


  1. Your roses are splendid Penny - and those plates, gorgeous! I have a set of violet dishes I use at Easter so the darling one you have caught my eye right away. The plate with the rose basket is so sweet too. What a beautiful table you've created!
