The days are grey and foggy, but here is the way to uplift your mood and get inspired.
Scroll through the pictures, and there is a good chance you will plan to attend the 15th annual Lakewold Gardens Beautiful Tables Showcase (October 24-27, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.) in Lakewood, Washington.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy creatively decorated tables just before the upcoming Holiday Season and get ideas for your own holiday home.
Warm up with apple cider and cookies, look at 32 tables and vote for your favorite.
As a precious bonus, take a peaceful stroll through the enchanted gardens and enjoy their fall colors.
To keep it a surprise for you, here are just several views of the rooms with decorated tables, but plenty of views of the autumn Gardens.
