Lakewold Gardens: Beautiful Tables Showcase - 2013

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.

    You did it again! I remember your last year pictures, they are great. Sorry, I live far from Lakewood,can't come over to enjoy the showcase and the gardens. Thank you for the photographs, Tatyana!

  5. So beautiful, the tables with a look outside on the magnificent gardens. Real great! I am looking forward for more.

  6. What outstanding gardens and your pictures too, girl!

  7. Gorgeous fall colors and gorgeous tablescapes!


  8. I don't know if I will ever get there but whenever we drive by because traffic is too bad, I think of you.
    We drive to our beach and there's a short cut driving right by the entrance.
    Thanks for making me feel like I've already been in.


  9. I remember being awed by your post last year, Tatyana. What a wonderful place to visit.

  10. Thank you everyone! See you soon!

    1. Great photos. How can I find out about the different events taking place at Lakewold Gardens for 2014?

  11. I have to say "what fun"! The pictures are as pretty outside as the designed tables inside.

    1. Donna, thanks! The visitors have double fun - to look at the table and to walk through the garden!

  12. The gardens are just beautiful, as are the tables. What a great way to spend a dreary day.
