~Fall Inspiration and Simple & Sweet Fridays #127~

I know I'm thinking about Fall early,
but our pumpkins our growing in the garden and it makes me think of
I just bought the new issue of 
The Country Journal. 
They had a beautiful Fall tablescape in it and
it inspired me to create a little Autumn too!
I used some burlap landscape to use as a tablecloth.
I love the Rustic feel to it.
I added some sunflowers for some color.
I also added some Bee Skeps, Pumpkins and Candles.

I used my dishes from William Sonoma.
The French script on it and Roosters are my favorite for a 
Fall Tablescape.
Some pretty etched glassed I found at Home Goods and 
orange pumpkin dessert plates add more Autumn color.
Looking forward to dining outside for Fall.

I wanted to share with you our chickens 
are laying about 2 eggs per day so far.
We named the dark one,
Dora, the Explorer because she loves to jump up on our table and say hello.  The blonde is Lucy Lou, because she reminds me of a Charlie's Angel. Always doing different stunts.
They're a wonderful addition to our family.
I'm getting used to getting up at 6am to open up their cage.
With a cup of coffee, it starts my day with a smile.

Rooted In Thyme


  1. Beautiful features and I love the burlap table. I'm not ready to think about fall, but I will pin it so I can use the idea in October or November. Although, it feels like we have had summer for over a year now.

  2. I'm not ready for Fall, but I love your sunflowers. I have some in the garden that are ten feet tall and still have not bloomed.
    It sure has been fun watching them grow. That burlap table cloth is very creative and I love your dishes . . . country charm to the max. Have a great day.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  3. Thank you for hosting! Love the Fall inspiration!

  4. oh boy that table is gorgeous.....belongs in that magazine for sure!

  6. Thank you for hosting! Have a great week!

  7. How fun to have chickens, Jody. Love the names. There is nothing better for breakfast than a fresh, organic egg. Your table looks amazing, just beautiful. Fall is my time of year and the colours are so gorgeous. Your burlap table-cloth is very charming. Enjoy your meals outside. Deb

  8. I'm totally ready for Fall, unfortunately here summer has no intention of leaving yet :)
    Thank you for the party!

  9. Dear Jody and Stan,
    Your Fall tablescape is so pretty. I've been amazed at the number of Fall posts that I've seen in the last week!
    We're still in Summer mode here :0) Like most people though, we LOVE Fall too . . . and I can't wait to welcome its beauty.
    Thanks so much for hosting!
    Have a great week(end),

  10. I absolutely LOVE your tablescape and your beautiful arbor! So creative!

  11. Your outdoor table is just so pretty and perfect and reminds me that fall is just around the corner. I love the chickens too and how nice of you to have fresh eggs everyday! Have a wonderful week and thanks for the fun party.

  12. Thank you thank you for featuring my bee table I was quite surprised and honored to see it on today's post

  13. What a beautiful table you have created! I am ready for fall! I love it! It's exciting your chickens are laying! Thanks for hosting!

  14. Wow, I love your autumn table. This is just beautiful.

    Have a great weekend

  15. Gorgeous! I saw that use of the burlap landscaping material and loved it also. You did a fabulous job. I wanted to pick some up for Fall. Thought maybe Home Depot would carry it. It has been nice and cool here with rain so Fall had definitely been on my mind. Trying to hold off till Sept. before pulling out the goods! However at a thrift this morning I found an old green fertilizer spreader with orange wheels. Can't wait to fill it with pumpkins! Happy to be joining the party this week. Love the features! Don't know why, but often when I hop over my computer freezes and I can't scroll down. After several tries if it still won't let me I finally give up. Made it today on the third try.

  16. Gosh, your fall tablescape is beyond rustic beautifullneous! It is so cool how you "tucked" up sections. I mean it is breathtaking. Even though I am not rushing to welcome fall I now have some inspiration. Thank you so much for featuring my Lemon Curd Triffle!

  17. Thank you for hosting your party, Jody! I can't wait for fall, and I'm in love with your rooster dishes.

  18. Thank you so much for featuring my pasta. I am thrilled and honored.

    I am in love with your plates. I am trying to be more discriminating with dishes, but I could not resist these.

    As always, thank you for hosting.


  19. Your table is actually absolutely gorgeous! The pool behind it is pretty inviting right now!

  20. Such a lovely table setting. Have a fantastic week, and thanks for hosting.

  25. How beautiful. I love fall, it's my favorite season. I have to really restrain myself from decorating for fall too early. Such beautiful colors to work with. I usually try to hold off until after Labor day, but that doesn't always work. Thanks for hosting.

  29. Gorgeous Tablescape and decorations for Fall. I've been trying to get in the mood to change out some décor, but being in the 100"s makes it hard!
    Thank you so much for the feature, I am honored! ♥

  30. Love the fall table.. So many pretty things here!!! This time of year I always get itchy for some fresh decor. I think I will trade my patriotic table settings for sunflowers this week. Have a great weekend.

  31. Your tablescape definitely says fall and quite wonderful.
