Today’s tea party is all about blue and orange — one of my absolute favorite color combinations. It’s also about giving in and embracing Fall. We’re still having really beautiful weather but we’re also on the edge of a drought now and I think I’m ready for that too cool and rainy fall preview weekend we had three weeks ago. I’m just not ready for it to cool down any more than that.

The teapot I based this on is a little big of a splurge so I went all out finding pieces to make it really come together. I love the dark navy color of the teapot and cups. I think it would be so pretty set against bright orange place settings.

As for the metro table, it might be my favorite part of this whole treasury. The muted, weathered color of the natural wood combined with the metal legs give it so much character. It only needs a few throw pillows to make it warmer and more comfortable.

Once the table is more comfortable and beautifully set, warm yourself up with a loose knit sweater, a scarf (let’s pretend it’s not repping Auburn for the time being), and a nice natural material cuff.
