~Autumn Inspiration and Simple & Sweet Fridays #86~

I love this time of year, especially in the garden.
Decorating with rich seasonal shades.
Create the perfect centerpiece using flowers, pinecones and
Adding height makes it a stunning tablescape. 
A beautiful purple cabbage makes a delightful focal point!
Fresh picked flowers from the garden.

Surround your centerpiece with gourds, pumpkins and squashes.
Your table will have a luscious palette of Fall colors.
I finally tried a recipe I've been wanting to make.
~Ricotta Stuffed Squash Blossoms~
I harvested the blossoms from our garden.
The filling is ricotta, zest of lemons and zucchini.
The batter is flour and buttermilk.
It's a delicious Fall appetizer!
One more week till Halloween!!

Looking forward to all your creative things you've been working on this week!!
