Soups On





There is a nip in the air, 

and we are welcoming fall.

It's the perfect time to enjoy a cup of hot soup.





I've set a table for 

two out in our sun room.


                   


~ Our Menu ~




Spicy Tomato-Chipolte Soup 

Garnished With Ripe Avocado Bites




Slices of Warm Focaccia 

Right Out of the Oven 




Chilled Chateau 

St. Michelle Chardonnay




Let's Dish 

about the details on the table.


The soup is served in 

simple white French porcelain bowls.




These cute pumpkin plates are 

the perfect accent for a fall table.  

I've place them on Nantucket Basket 

by Wedgwood to set them off 

against the fall inspired placemats.




The detail of the hand painting 

on the pumpkin plates is amazing.  

I wasn't familiar with MSC Mainstreet Collection, 

but if these plates are representative 

of their product line, I'm impressed.





We found the decoupage placemates 

at a Paris shop many years ago.  

The colors and the details are wonderful 

and perfect for any fall table.  

I've used my husband's favorite flatware, 

Talisman by Christophe.




These were made by Siecle, 

but I suspect many of you clever 

DIY readers could make these yourself.




The metal leaf serving plate 


offers another touch of fall.





As do the plaid 

napkins tied with raffia.



The mix of colorful 

flowers fill a favorite medal basket.
