Making Autumn-in-September Memories

Holy smokes. I don't know how it's been around your house, but around here it has been busier than a swarm of bees.

Last weekend there wasn't even a spare second to sit and think much.

We had a birthday party, out-of-state guests, a visit with an elderly aunt and a class reunion breakfast, all rolled into a couple of days. Whew!

Loved setting an autumn table for breakfast.

The fall faux leaf wreath is up again, too, to welcome visitors.

While having a busy schedule does make one a little frantic, it's also wonderful for making precious memories!

I do not entertain but I love to be entertained..ha ha. Lovely decorations for the fall Susan!

Sounds like a very busy time, Susan. Don't forget to make time to rest. :)

I would entertain more if The Man was a bit more into the whole idea. He's never been a social butterfly, although he does enjoy family gatherings. I guess we can call that entertaining, too.

GIRL YOU WENT ALL OUT - THAT WAS GORGEOUS - I Love what you did with it and I am sure your guests did too. You make everyone feel good. I like to entertain but have not in awhile.

That table setting is lovely, and I know you had fun at that reunion. You were probably the belle of the ball.

Beautiful Autumnal table and I'm sure the breakfast was scrumptious too. Lucky guests. Sounds like a very busy but fun weekend.

I do like to entertain and do so quite frequently. It is a lot of work, but the fun of it is definitely worth it. Sounds like you agree.

Your table is lovely. It does seem like things get really bust this time of year. I'm trying to drag out the fall decor and see what I want to keep. xo Laura

I can identify with being busy! Same here! Your autumn table is absolutely gorgeous. =)
Blessings, Valerie

Your Autumn table is so festive and pretty, Susan. I really like the red glasses. It's starting to feel like Fall around here. Yes, I like to entertain, but there's nothing like a quiet night home with your loved one.

Have a sweet September week.

Hi Susan,
Your table looks so pretty! I've always admired your plate pattern, is it called Country Roses? I have the cups and saucers but that is it.
Have a great day!
