DINING ALFRESCO FOR FALL -Pick Your Favorite

Well, you all said you liked
the posts where you picked your favorites.
Or...if you didn't like it 
you kept your mouth shut....
your thoughts to yourself so now
you are stuck with me doing another
PICK YOUR FAVORITE
You can click on any image for the source~
(if I have it)

Ready?
Okay- Here we go!
#1
A harvest table set out on a  patio
with an arbor to the side..
Beautiful in whites and neutrals.
#2
This one is a bit more rustic with
much more color and 
is under a gazebo.
Love the chandelier.
#3
How about this tablecloth covered table
in a field of green?
Don't you love those wood chargers?
#4
This one is even simpler with a 
painted picnic table and white tableware
and colorful runner to anchor the food..
#5
This one sports a heavily ruffled  burlap runner,
candles and bronze colored chargers.
#6
A study in greens-green goblets
yellow plates, ladderback chairs.
#7
Last but not least-
A FUN one-It reminds me of an opened
Crayola box.
So, there you go-
Place your vote for #1 thru #7
and I will tally up the results for Thursday.

And tomorrow I will give you a
SWEET CHEEKS STORY
if you promise not to poke your finger
in the bottom of all the chocolates in the box
to see which one you like best.
You KNOW you do that!

Difficult choice because I like then all! Guess that I will have to go with #4. It is lovely.

I don't stick my finger in the chocolates anymore. I cut them in half now. That way hubby can eat the ones that I don't like. LOL!

Hartwood Roses said...

I can't choose because I can't concentrate on anything except for how many dishes are on each of the tables. There's NO way that all those dishes will fit into the dishwasher in one load. The poor Thanksgiving dishwasher loader will be in the kitchen all night after guests depart.

With this in mind, perhaps I should choose #2 ... the places don't appear to be set, so we could enjoy the decorations and use paper plates. (just kidding)

I agree, a difficult choice, but I think I will go with number 1.

Kathy said...

I can't choose. Oh what to do! I think... I think... Oh, I'll go with #7. I love to color.

Kay G. said...

I pick number 4! (I am a simple gal, really.)
When I was a kid, I never had to poke a finger into the chocolates, my little brother would already have done it for me!
(He hated coconut!)

Susie said...

Diana, I think I like the second setting best...it's so natural. The views are great also. Blessings,xoxo,Susie
p.s. weather map is looking like winter.

Lori said...

I would cozy on up to number seven! Bright, cheery, fall all over and red is my favorite color. The different chairs, I want them all.

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

Number one? Number two? Number one?.......you know I am unable to make even the simplest of decisions.....SIGH!!! xo Laura

Cristina Garay said...

They are all beautiful! I would pick anyone, but #7 would be my choice today, pretty colors ;)

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Oh geez, that's a tough one. They are all so beautiful. I love deep, rich harvest colors, but the soft shades of #1 and #3 are kind of calling my name at the moment. Makes me want to have a party. Or maybe just get invited to one!

Amber said...

WHAAA!! What choices! If I had to pick one that just sucked me in, it would have to be #2. Such beautiful color! I love the chandelier too.

Sylvia said...

My MY, that was a hard one to choose . I like them all but will go for #5

♥ Sonny ♥ said...


I'll choose no. 1 for the colors and elements they used.. We are a small family of 3 so if there had been a smaller setting choice I would have gone with that using the same elements as no. 1..

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Are all these your tablescapes?

Gulp.

I choose number one, def most me - but they are all amazing.

Donna said...

I vote for #1! Simple is better:) Though it was a big distracting choosing, all I noticed was the food on each table!

Junkchiccottage said...

Oh Diana they are all so beautiful it was hard to pick but I think #2 really shows the fall colors and you had me at Arbor and that chandelier is fabulous! Yep the white chippy girl is passing on the white/neutral for the colorful #2! :)

Anna Hanley said...

Hi, well that's not fair because they are all beautiful! I love them all that's my pick!! Have a great day!

Beth said...

I like #4 the best.
As for chocolates I take a bite and if I don't like it I pitch it. LOL I especially don't like the jelly filled ones.

Nellie said...

I would say that #1 is my favorite.

I don't bother about trying out the chocolates before popping them in my mouth! I don't ever think I've ever met a chocolate that I didn't like.:-) xo Nellie

Julie H said...

I vote for #2.

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

This is such fun, and not so easy! I like 1, 2, and 6, but I'll vote for #1.

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

I like #3 the best, but they were all gorgeous! Hugs, Penny

Ruth Kelly said...

#7 has a very nice balance of colors. I choose that one.

Kelly said...

I love number 3! I think those wood chargers are so clever for a rustic table setting. I also love all the white and grey with pops of green.

Simply LKJ said...

I chose #1, love the simplicity of it. Adore the white and blue-green pumpkins as well.

Sherry at The Rusty Pearl said...

I love one and two and three OMGOSH I think i Jacked all of them. I even posted that I got these from nana diana takes a break on my FB PAGE OMGOODNESS GRAVY went crazy.. As always YOU ROCK

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

I like #2 - the beautiful colors.
I love eating outside if weather permits - just think Thanksgiving how great that would be.
Have a HAPPY
Mary

Number three for sure. Easy on the eyes.

Blessings!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Oh dear...they are all beautiful! I suppose if I have to choose just one, it would be number two. I love that table and all the fall leaves! Fun post!

Mindy said...

3 or 6, 3 or 6, 3 or 6......okay, I'll commit to 6.

Pam Kessler said...

#1 for me, because I love that grapevine stuff twisted in among the pumpkins. But you won't see me eating outside this time of year. I'm too wimpy for that :)

Teresa said...

#1 because it is so simple.

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Diana. Love these! I am torn between #1 and #2. I know I have pinned #2 and I think I have pinned #1, and because it sticks in my memory I really do love #2, but if I were going to sit down for a meal, I think it would be #1. So, I guess, my preference would be #1. #1 Final Answer!!..Is your head spinning yet? Judy

camp and cottage living said...

I can't possibly pick just one.
I'd take any of them!!
They are all beautiful and creative.

lynn said...

beautiful pics, but, i didn't need to go past #1--gorgeous--love it:)

jackie collins said...

Number 2, I love the pots and the potting soil!

NanaNor's said...

Hi there, O.k. so here we go again-love these memes; however I can't choose just one. My favorite is a tie-I love #1 but also #5. Sorry, not following the rules I guess. If I had to make a choice, it would be #5. Wonder what everyone else said??? Will have to look.
Hugs, Noreen

Tessa~ said...

#2!!!

The chandelier and orange/black Halloweeeeeny streamers got me!!!!

Tessa~

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Oh...love this game!
Number two for sure...it would look beautiful at night all lit up!
Off to poke the chocolates...

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

I am a sucker for gazebos and pergolas…love #2

Willow said...

Number 2 is my style for certain right down to the live hanging out rooster there by the table !
Saw you overs at Sherry's and popped in to say "Hi"
Glad I did this was quite fun.

Jettie said...

#4, it is all set to go with the turkey and other food. You can keep those others, no food there,

Faye said...

Oh for sure #1! Love the soft colors and the simplicity. But all of the pictures are making me hungry!!!

joanne said...

#1, which surprises me, I usually like a little Fall colour on the table. Have you ever dined outside on turkey day??

Gina said...

#2 is my favorite! I keep thinking, wouldn't it be nice to actually be able to eat outdoors this time of year? Without a heavy jacket, anyway! :)

missy said...

That's really tough..1,6,7..Can't chose just one...SORRY..

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

I pick #6. Those green glasses stand out to me. Funny, it's really not my style but I like them here.

Tammy Henderson said...

Number 1 all the way!!!

Katie Clooney said...

I love every one of them. Wish it was warm enough to sit outside.

Art and Sand said...

My favorite is #2 and I can't pin down why.

But, I love the idea of the wood chargers.

sweetvintageofmine said...

Hands down for me its #1!!! And for second place it's #2! Very nice Fall table displays...all were beautiful in their own way! Blessings~~~Roxie

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

They are all lovely !
I'd take number 1 or number 3 if I were choosing - I know that shocks you -heehee!

Patty Patterson said...

#5... because when it comes to holidays I love traditional.

My Garden Diaries said...

Ok...I love them all! But I kept going back to number 6! I want one of those in my house! Ha! You have an outstanding day tomorrow!

Chatty Crone said...

I love them all! My favorite is number 1. Classy to me. sandie

Karen said...

I love the gray pumpkins on table #1, but I think #3 stole my heart.

Donna-s Lair said...

d) none of the above

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

#1!!! Love it! Hope it's not too late to vote.
These were all gorgeous and I love the wood rounds as chargers but #1 is my favorite.

Little Miss Maggie said...

I love them all. It's too hard to pick a favorite. Beautiful.

Weekend-Windup said...

Difficult choice to select one. I like all of them. They look different and beautiful in different colors.

iris said...

très difficile

j'aime l'harmonie des verts

Laurel@ChippingwithCharm said...

Oh my...I actually love them all :) But I'll go with #7...love those candles in the buckets!!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diana,
I love to have the Autumn orange colors on my Thanksgiving table every year, so I will go with either 4 or 5. Four is simple, and Five is elegant.

Look forward to seeing which one was picked the most.

Love,
~Sheri

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, I liked 2 also. It's very rustic and pretty, although it's too cold here to sit outside on Thanksgiving day hehe.

~Sheri

LV said...

I will take number 7. I like the simple things of life.

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

I can't decide between 3 and 4. Okay, I'm gonna go with 4 -- it has the food!

Leena Milligan Lanteigne said...

I think I like #2 because it's so rustic and just says fall to me. They all have their good points though and I'd probably use each of them at some point. Hugs, Leena
