An Autumnal Table via Southern Living

I know the October issue of Southern Living is about to hit, but before it does, I have to fawn over this spread featured in September's issue that is full of beautiful color and a gorgeous table setting.

Mint + caramel + pink + gold + aqua...I think it's a perfect entertaining arrangement to take you into fall without going straight to the autumnal hues.

Just STOP. This table is beyond words:


Calder Clark suuuure knows her stuff...oh to be stylish and living in Charleston. I just love how she's mixed these feminine colors but the rustic table and burnished gold accessories keeps them feeling warm enough for this time of year. Oh, and those painted mint julep cups - genius!

I was asked a while ago what my favorite magazine was and I said I didn't have one because I like everything I receive....I'm amending that answer: Southern Living, for sure and for certain. I adore my tried and true shelter mags - House Beautiful, Elle Decor, Traditional Home, Veranda - but Southern Living makes me want to be a better person. When I'm done reading an issue I want to travel, decorate, shop, cook and slow down to enjoy beautiful things. Each issue makes me relish the deliciousness of the South that Carter and I adore so much. I am super guilty of letting shelter mags pile up for months to be devoured in one Saturday afternoon, but Southern Living is the mag I always make time for when the new issue arrives (and I actually prefer viewing it on my iPad).

So what I'm saying is, I like Southern Living. To Lindsay Bierman and his team, keep the goodness coming.


  1. Yes, this is a gorgeous table. Nice work they are doing over there. I had allowed my subscription to lapse for a couple of years but now that they have new leadership it looks very fresh to me and I have re-subscribed.

  2. Southern Living is by far the BEST magazine out there, hands down! And those colors Calder used are stunning, I love how she brought in pastels, yet it's still ushering in fall...GENIUS!

  3. I recently began receiving SL and I love it! I love the way it nudges me into a more gracious and genteel routine. Did you try the caramel apple dip die for and a new family fave around here.
