Fall in Savannah is one of the best times of the year. The weather is just perfect! In fact, the fall is so magical in Savannah, that I almost like it better than spring! All of the humidity is gone from the air, and with the coastal breezes comin’ in off the islands it’s so light and airy. Michael and I love eating outside and breathing in the crisp fall air with a cozy soup as we look out over our garden.
I put this table together on a quiet Saturday afternoon the other week, and I just had to share it with y’all. We sat on the north end of our home, near the chicken coop. I made a sweet and savory soup and salad, and served it in some beautiful old bowls from my grandparents’ restaurant- these are two of the most precious things I own.
Take these tips, and make this table your own! Do you have a special recipe, or fall-inspired decorating idea? I’d love to hear about them!

I love reading about your family and seeing your pictures. I respect the fact that you are teaching your son's family values because so much of that seems to be going by the wayside anymore..maybe someday we will meet and by that time your son's may even have their own cooking show.lol..wishing you lots and lots of love from this country girl's kitchen to Brooke Deen's kitchen of love.
