Oh Martha! You Set SUCH A Pretty Table-Pick YOUR Favorite

Yes- I know!
I need to let go of Summer and start embracing Fall!
I have always loved the vibrant colors of Autumn
but as I was looking at Martha Stewart's website
I found some wonderful Fall inspirations
and some of them are quite neutral
A few weeks back I did a little game called
PICK YOUR FAVORITE
I used cottages before but this time let's do

TABLE SETTINGS

Ready?
RAISE YOUR HAND 
if you would LOVE to sit at this table!
Simple and Sweet and Calm
Table #1
Okay-Put your arms down-
You can't drink coffee with your arm in the air, silly.
This one is a bit more colorful.
Would you want to sit at
Table #2?

Blue and gold - a new take on Fall
Table #3
Blue not your choice for Fall?
This is the Soft Side of Autumn for me
Aren't those paper leaves cute and fun?
Try Table #4
Or-You can pull up a chair and sit here.
A modern look at Fall
Table #5
How about the really warm, cozy harvest feeling of
Table #6
And last, but not least
Matthew Mead featured by Martha Stewart.
Lucky Table #7
So- There you have it.
What's your pick?
I'll set a virtual table 
 and set a place just for you.
You are welcome to come IF
 you promise NOT to spit your food out
when I am not looking.

Okay- That's it!  Pick your seat-

  3. Hi DIana,
    I like one and 7 you know me and neutrals!!!! Love them all. I would not mind sitting down at any one of them. How fun this post. Makes us start to think about fall.

  4. I like tables 2 and 3 - the more color, the better for me.

  5. They're all so gorgeous! Although I can't just pick one, but will try... so I choose #1 and #7. Great ideas my friend and great choices you picked for us. I'm making one with blue and red transferware for a dinner party this saturday and I will post it next week...but it's not like I'm making it really for Fall, either, but I do like blue for Fall too. Big hugs,
    FABBY

  6. Okay, well they're all gorgeous, but I'm gonna have to go with #2, for the fact that it appears to be outdoors. Eating Thanksgiving dinner in a garden would be pretty amazing.

  7. I honestly can't pick one, not like me at all but these are incredible!

    I love each one, for different reasons - but if you were threatening to take away my coffee if I don't come up with a number one I would be forced to answer with #4 - it's neutral with hints of fall colour - but wow I do love them all.

    What fun.

  8. #7 for me .. oh how I would love to be in that setting...

    this is soooooooooooo much fun..

    hugs

  9. I Love the first one. I can't believe that we are discussing fall. It is still a million degrees with 100% humidity here!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh bother, I can't pick just one...I like 2,4,6 :) Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Number one is my favorite...I've kept it on my Pinterest boards for awhile...just to stare at...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well, I would choose #3, blue and gold. Those are the colors of my college, and I am always trying to come up with something blue and gold. Hard to do since I am really not a huge fan of gold.:-) xo Nellie

  13. Hi Diana,
    Well, #1 is my favorite. I love the crispness of the white along with the pale pumpkins and candles.

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your sweet friendship. I always think how sweet it would be to have tea and cookies for my visitors. I guess if we could have a cookie at every blog we visited, we would all be blogging about dieting, LOL.

    Have a lovely day.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  14. Oh Miss Diana Stewart.....I am in love with number one. I like the calmness of the colors and oh so COZY.

    ReplyDelete

    XOXO

  17. Beautiful, Diana! No. 1 has been one of my faves since last year (gorgeous), but I'm also liking lucky no. 7, too! Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi there...you sure picked some beauties....for me its 1 or 7 though I would be happy to sit at ANY of these gorgeous tables...hope you are well!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi, If I could choose any table setting that I'd love to have at my house I would be stuck between #2,6 and 7. They are all gorgeous.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs, Noreen

  20. Normally, I'm a traditional orange and brown kind of girl (sort of sound like I have a fake tan). I sort of like the pear look though. Nicely understated.

    ReplyDelete
  21. SO MUCH FUN!!
    table 5 please.
    6 was runner up. especially with a cozy fire going maybe.
    but nope. love table 5 !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Table 7- love the colors and the fireplace in the background! What time shall I be there?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well, I would boo hoo over any of the choices but if I had my druthers it would be #3!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Can I pick 1, 5 and 7? I've never spit out food before....never and that is my problem!
    I'm excited for fall. But around here we just call it November; have you ever seen a palm tree change colors? Me neither. :(

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love all the colors of Fall, so I think I would love to sit at Table 2. I also love the coziness and warmth of Table 6. They are both so pretty. I am embracing Fall, and I can see that you are too!

    Love,
    ~Sheri

  26. My choice would depend on the weather. If it is warm, then I'd choose No. 1 and if it's cool enough to have a fire in that fireplace, then I'd say No. 6! Fun post!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. please reserve me a space at table #7 please! I love them all but that one does speak to me!
    Have a blessed weekend

  28. Diana, I loved them all...but the first one was my favorite. There's a lady name Fabby that sets some really nice tables. Her blog is fun to see. xoxo,Susie

  29. I choose number five. Of course I would have dinner at any of them.

  30. They all are very pretty but my favorites are #1 and #5.

    ReplyDelete
  31. #2 for me....although I would be happy with any of them! I got out a box of Fall decor today. I can't wait to add a little touch of Fall to the house! Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  32. #1 had my attention all the way through till we came to Matthew's table. I'm a fan of both Martha and Matthew!
    So for me, it's a toss up. I want to dine at both. How about inviting me to two dinners?
    Love the natural easy tone of both of these tables. I like the softer side of fall. These two tables are just perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Number one hands down! I love all the white - bet that shocks you!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Number one for me! Love those blue chairs.

    Hope you are having a great week.

    hugs

  35. #2definitely!! But then, I love color.

  36. I love every one except 3 and 5. The blue and gold just doesn't look like fall. I love neutral and natural but I am trying to make friends with color (except maybe for red, orange and purple)!

    XO,
    Jane

    ReplyDelete
  37. if I had to pick...would choose probably #1...but let me tell you, as long as the food served is good, I can really sit at any table.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Honestly, I love them all but am particularly partial to #4. Beautiful selection. On Sept 1st I feel that Fall is starting to tiptoe in and peep around the corner. While Autumn isn't 'officially' upon us 'til Sept 22nd, I'm eager for it to arrive. -- Jan

  39. I'm a table #1 girl!! Love it soft and white...I don't really care for fall colors

  40. Pears and English walnuts. I love em both. Those are great looking tables.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love them all Diana but Table #1 and #7 are my favorites!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi Friend Sorry for the late entry ~ I love #6. Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh shoot I want to vote ! Should have visited your blog sooner. Been busy busy painting for the art show. I love number 6 anyway ...so there!

    Love the pics of the gals off to school too. so so cute.
    Oh my , those green grey eyes are lovely

  44. I like #5.... but it you don't have the pretty stemware or are serving children who are likely to spill such glasses #2 is a close second.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I know I'm late, but I'm still voting number 7. It's beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I like something about all of them but #6 grabbed me. I like the comfortable relaxed feeling it gave and the coloring is very fall like.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well, I always seem to be the last one to vote, so I will vote for the last table! #7!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Tough all between #1 and #7, but I pick #1!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think No. 7 is my pick. A little color but not too bright. I'm definitely not ready for the blue one.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am late to the voting having been MIA from blogging this past week. I like the first one.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Okay, I know I'm late to the party, but I just don't always play by the rules...lol! I would go for the Matthew Mead table. Actually, I think I kind of captured his look in my Fall dining room -- I'm just clever that way!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Okay I know I am late to the party...so what's knew :-)
    I am picking number one :-)
