Hello Fall - Summer is Up Up and Away!

Happy fall!  The weather is finally changing.  In fact it is raining today and close to 68.  Our flowers and plants will appreciate the extra moisture.

Today I am joining a group of talented bloggers who have created some inspiring fall tablescapes.  Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate has once again organized this fun blog hop.  The ladies sharing their posts in this hop are listed toward the bottom of this post.

We are saying goodbye to summer and welcoming fall, so I thought I would create a table that reflects this.  Using these cute Hot Air Balloons with our LED light pads make this table pop! These light pads are so fun.  They are submersible too, so feel free to drop them in a fountain, floral vase, centerpieces, you name it!
end of summer , welcome fall tablescape
The cute hot air balloons were from Amazon.  They pop right up!  Fun to use and they pack up well.

Up, up and away summer!  We shall see you next year.



I dressed the lanterns with some greenery, led lights and velvet pumpkins.

Colorful flatware goes along with the colorful balloon plates.  I am using all different colored dinner plates to go with the hot air balloons.

My husband said this table is whimsical and fun.  I love how the lanterns light up.The lights I bought from Amazon.  I am very pleased with them.  Down at the pool, I used quite a few sets to really light up our pool area like a resort. If you care to read more about the LED light pads, you can find it here. Color My World

Submersible Led Lights with Remote




The fall floral sit in a wooden box my husband made. I love how elegant it is. You can read all about here, Elegant Wooden Box


You can see the vibrant lights here in this photo.  I used the remote to change each LED light pad to match the hot air balloons.

Happy fall and I hope you are inspired. Be sure to visit these ladies and by all means, have fun!

  1. Linda, Your table is so magical with your hot air balloons floating above it! I love the plates and colorful flatware and how you can control the light colors to coordinate with the balloons. Your outdoor area by your pool cabana in magical too. Beautiful centerpiece and floral box your hubby built for you! We’re still in the mid 90s here and I’m beyond ready for cooler temps and to say goodbye to summer! As always it’s a treat to blog hop with you. ♥

  3. Wow, Linda your table is extraordinary! You have the flair for drama! How sweet of your husband to make such a nice box for you. You can use that often! The hot air ballons floating above your table all lit up are exotic and fun.The different color plates and hot air balloon plates along with the colorful flatware are so attractive and eye-catching too. This is no cookie cutter table! So adorable and memorable.
    On our last trip we were having dinner on the terrace and a group of hot air balloons drifted by. That was a memorial dinner as is your fall table.

  4. Oh, how fun is this, Linda?! Of course, I'm singing 5th Dinension's song in my head as I read the title (and dating myself). The table theme is perfect to transition the seasons! Paul is right, this is whimsical and fun. Love the balloons and colorful place settings so much! I can see both adults and children having fun at this table. Thanks for the inspiration. And we sure could use some of that rain you're having! It's been literally weeks since we've had rain!

  8. The hot air balloon lights captured by inner child in me. I was immediately drawn to it and excited to see that they were lit in different colors. What a lovely and unique way to dress up your table. It is also so exciting to see the balloon theme mirrored with the colorful balloon plates and colorful flatware. So festive for the departure of summer and the welcomed change into Fall. As always it is a pleasure to blog hop with you.

  24. Linda- That is just a FUN table and setting. Once again, you have outdone yourself. Your fall decorations are beautiful, too. My son sells all of the promotional things they sell at the annual Balloon Fest in Albuquerque and is there for most of the week-as the trucks come in and get distributed. It is one of his biggest clients. I have a couple of balloon'items' that he passed along to me- so much fun.
    Have a wonderful rest of the weekend- xo Diana
