~ Autumn pastels ~

(All photography by me)
This year my Autumn decor is softer and filled with white pumpkins and pastels...

I love the pastel colours in the millinery garland...
the creamy white roses and white pumpkins....
the light green chippy lantern adds the perfect touch and the chippy blue farm table was a $5 goodwill find a few years ago.

So simple yet so pretty to me....

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thanks so much for visiting..
