Welcome to the month of September

September marks a change - a change in schedules as children go back to school - a change in weather - a change in the air and a change in the way we decorate our homes.

I am a person who loves variety so change is a good thing for me!  I don't enjoy looking a the same ole same ole!  I love to eat different things - and move through all four seasons with different decorations in my home!  Different dishes, table setting, etc

I still have some Queen Anne's Lace blooming but much of that is gone - actually I have gone ahead and pulled out many of the old bloomed out plants - of course making sure to control where past seeds have dropped and I see plenty of plants for next year in the baby stage.

The little tea set is part of the "Games Series" and the Worcester Group. It is perfect for fall and perfect for Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea.


  1. Your garden tea is just perfect. Love the dishes for fall. It's always good to take a walk in your garden.

  2. Hi Bernideen,
    oh whow! Your garden is still flowering so much and the bouquet is lovely. The china is to die for. Sooo pretty. And the cute napkins. There are (as always) so many nice details on your table. Thats a way to have fun in September. Thank you for sharing this delightful tea and for hosting this nice event.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  3. Hi Bernideen! Oh, what a lovely place to have a spot of tea! Those dishes are just beautiful and your garden is amazingly beautiful!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelai ;)

  4. Your flowers are still beautiful, I just love looking at your tea garden...
    What gorgeogus dinnerware, so fitting for this time of the year, when oranges, and browns take their turn on the table.
    Your tablecloth is exquisite, lots of handwork went into making that beauty.

  5. What a wonderful autumn looking tea! I love your tablecloth and napins, so perfect for this time of year along with your lovely tea set. I have been hunting for any dishes in the brown transferware pattern. It says fall to me. Thank you for hosting your tea party this week.
    p.s. Your garden looks great!

  7. Another beautiful post and your garden continues to look so welcoming.
    I am not ready to leave summer behind quite yet...
    I love your tablecloth and dishes, Bernideen.
    All good thoughts from Ruthie at:

  8. Hello Bernideen
    I love your fall dishes and those napkins! Wow, how gorgeous are they. Nice to see some colour from the garden still in the background.

  9. Bernideen, your dishes are lovely and perfect for Autumn. I am not quite ready to leave Summer behind just yet though.
    Hubby, my son, and I took a lovely walk on the beach yesterday and today we had to light the pellet stove because we're getting dumped on by Issac. We do need the rain however so I'm not complaining!
    The garden in your header looks just beautiful with the vibrant flowers. Thank you for joining me for tea today.


  10. A very nice tea in the fall garden! I'm in the mood for fall foods -- stews and such and hearty tea breads like pumpkin and butternut squash!

  11. The garden looks pretty. It seems quite a few Americans decorate for the seasons. Not something we do here, just for Christmas and not always for that.

    I am sure the muffins are great but I cannot imagine just what Pumpkin muffins would taste like. People are just about getting into making Pumpkin soup though I have not tried it. I guess it must be something like Squash. Generally here (until recent influence from the US,) pumpkins have just been to make lanterns from.

  12. How lovely your garden is and the tea table just perfect. I love the napkins and dishes. I will be back next week to post as I will be doing a teatime post then xx

  13. thank you so very much for sharing your tea party / garden post over here at Fishtail Cottage's garden party! i know i host a garden party, but those quail dishes are pretty! xoxo, tracie
