My First Fall Table:))))

    Fall is a beautiful season  and the arrival of  it makes us to think about all the deeper tones of Autumnal Platte for decors and table settings. 
     The first darker evenings with curtains drawn creates a soothing feeling. Creating my first  Fall table for the season with warm hues and lighting of candles gave a sense of cozy enclosure. Hope everyone enjoying the season of Autumn in doors as well out doors with your loved ones. ' Wishing everyone a blissful Fall'.

I have used my hand loom bed spread as a table spread and also placed two different sizes of candles. Flat and taller candles.

Blissful Navratri

  For Hindus in particular this part of the year  is the best period as it is lined up with festivities in our calendar. 

Everyone knows the celebrations at home is always  all about the right decor, best invite, delicious menus and exchange of gifts with innovative gift wraps etc. Also bringing out the favorite table-wares  to the table is a part of it as if it is not now then when? Sharing here with you all a coffee table setting from the just concluded Navrathri celebration with festive goodies at our home. 

The nine day festival which symbolizes Good prevailing over Evil is celebrated with joy in most of the houses bringing the families and friends together. During the festival people revisit their roots by keeping Kolu at home. (display of dolls including Gods and Goddesses connected with Mythology,  traditions and culture.) 

As usual festivities start in dinning area and we serve our guests the traditional recipes  with love and warmth.

Good-Bye Summer Table

There comes a time in life when you become out of focus, and are not interested in things that one loved to do. The past three months have been months of mixed feelings for me. I was busy sometimes and sometimes I was not so busy. I developed severe leg pain which restricted my movement, but I am back to normal now. Beside all of this I am heart broken too, because for my dear pussy cat (Pussyma) has been missing from the scene for the last one and half month. I haven't seen him for quite some time and remembering him makes me cry. I miss him so much.  I pray that nothing terrible has happened to him and hope to see him soon at our door step. He is a out door cat who visited us everyday to have his cat food and to have his sixteen hours long nap and would quietly slip away in the evening after few loving pats.   

Meanwhile, I have been visiting everyone's blog and enjoyed seeing all the wonderful  table settings. And as usual everyone's beautiful updates were refreshing to read. 

Summer slipped away saying i would return next year and the weather here is sometime  hot, humid with evening showers. The garden is green and lovely.  I wanted to bounce back to blogging with a table setting near the bay window and hope those who stopped at Crystal Grandeur to like it. Thank you...:)
