Autumn Tea Outdoors

It's a nice day today...a little chilly, but bright.
I played with a few settings for tea.
I used Denby mugs and the blue plates purchased on sale at Dillards last winter.
The first is a table among the Limelight hydrangeas, which are showing pretty pink in the blooms.
I used a wool blanket as a table cover, with a fishnet overlay.
Then I removed the netting, and changed the location..
I also tried a different look with a plaid throw...
We had pumpkin pie with our tea...
A couple more photos of what's blooming now..the temps are dipping at night, so it may be quite different very soon...
I'm joining Sandi and friends for  Tea Time Tuesday again. See you there!

Hello Millie,
Your settings are all so cozy; especially the one among the hydrangeas. I do love the limelights! Your plaid throw gives your tea table a completely different look which is fun. I will be making pumpkin pie one of these days as I always seem to crave it this time of year. Yours looks delicious with whipped cream. Thank you for stopping by to join me for Tea Time. Hope you have a splendid week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Millie, You always create beautiful tablescapes among your lovely flowers. Have a good evening.

My favorite is with the plaid blanket. Looks very fall-ish. And your flowers are beautiful! The pie looks delicious; we just had pie tonight, kind of an autumn thing to do :)

Millie, these all look so nice outdoors among the flowers. I think I like the plaid table cover best. Love the Denby mugs too. Looks like you have roses yet to bloom. Hopefully the frost won't get them. Have a good week. Pam

Hi Millie,
I love plaid so your setting with the wool blanket made me gasp! Such a perfect setting. I see that you and I had the same idea of tea in the garden. lol! Love your gorgeous blooms. What is the name of your other Hydrangea? I have a Str. Vanilla that has been very pretty this year, a Annabelle, and a new Incrediball I bought last year. It only had one bloom. I love the large blue and pink ones but they don't do well here.
hugs,
Jann

Your garden is still so lovely and perfect for an early autumn tea with pumpkin pie. I like the different looks you tried - each one gives a unique flair to your setting.
