Autumn Lunch for Two

We had another gorgeous autumn morning today.   I took my coffee and walked around the yard......snipping a whole basket full of flowers!

I made a big bouquet....
for our table in the kitchen where we are having our lunch today.  

All the flowers came from our yard, but the babies breath is left over from what I purchased last week at the grocery store for $4.99.
I had quite a few purple flowers, so I decided to use a purple/pink/autumn theme for the table.

I layered the place mats and the plates....

and will use this Chocolate pot to serve out hot tea.

We are having "made from scratch" banana pudding for dessert!
Yummy!!!!!

Halloween is "creeping" up on us this week.....are you ready!   I have started planning our Thanksgiving. dinner ......and H is checking the lights on the Christmas tree's!   Happy Hallothanksmas!

  17. Gosh, I haven't had good old fashioned pudding in years! I wonder why not, it's so good. I can't believe you still have roses in your garden Penny and that arrangement is gorgeous. I also love baby's breath; which I also haven't seen or used for years. :)

  18. I bought a chocolate pot set like that for my mother in law years ago. I always thought it was so beautiful and she did serve me hot chocolate in it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lovely romantic setting. The lace trimmed pumpkin is perfect! Isn't it a joy to cut flowers in your own yard? I am losing older established plants - peonies, a rose and some lavender to some thing we haven't been able to identify - virus or insect - but a little corner that is sunny in the morning and shady in the afternoon as turned out to be perfect for a cutting bed - zinnia, daisies, so far. You've inspired me to google growing baby's breath - would be nice to have that at hand. Have a great week!
