Fall is definitely in the air in Colorado.  It has been very dry so concern for wildfires is a real thing!  You may have heard about some of the fires....

Last night it was a perfect evening for some Harney and Sons Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Tea.

I had also made some pumpkin spice scones and had on hand some lovely English clotted cream................yummmmmmy!

This is a caffeine free "tea" of rosehips, dried apples, hibiscus and other dried fruits so it really isn't "tea" in the truest sense of the word in that it isn't from the Camelia Sinensis bush.  (Herbals or Tissanes would be more correct!)

Have you gotten out your fall decorations?  Last weekend I pulled mine up from the basement!

I love this old punch bowl from the 1950's with the golden colors!

Others who celebrate this day can be found at Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations with Sandi.....

Pumpkin Spiced scones sounds different and look yummy.
Autumn is in the air here too feels like Summer has long gone and more like November just now.

Ah yes, beautiful autumn in Colorado Springs! A time of change. I always feel my best in the fall, it's my favorite time of year. And yes, I pulled out my fall decorations too and will put pics on my blog this afternoon. I was inspired by one of your posts last week on this subject. Thank you Bernideen. I'll be seeing you soon.

Hello Bernideen :) What a lovely Tea post this week! It is feeling a bit like fall around here too. I must say, that I do not decorate my home for the fall, as I am not a lover of those richer colors. I just keep my home in my pinks, greens and creamy whites all year. I even decorate my Christmas tree in those colors too :)

Wishing you a lovely Tea Tuesday!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Hi Bernideen,
Your tea set is lovely for Autumn! The scones with clotted cream look delicious and how nice it would be to sit and have a cup of tea with you. I am working on painting some pumpkins for a centerprice. That's about all the decorating I've gotten around to so far. As I said in my post, I'm kind of dragging my feet. I hate to see the Summer end. Lovely post; thank you. Enjoy the rest of your day, my friend.

Honey, there is nothing you can't do. No matter the theme, no matter the season, you know exactly how to put together a table! The fall leaf china is so pretty! And that pumpkin scone looks to die for!

It's still in the 90 degree mark here in Tennessee, looks like you are already much cooler.
Enjoy !

You certainly do set a grand buffet! Your display is utterly charming in the beautiful colors of autumn! I LOVE the season and must search for a cute scarecrow like yours for my garden!

Your side board looks so lovely. I really like your fall themed tea sets, very delicate, but still with the flavor of fall.
