Lammas Tablescape – A Ritual Gathering For Leo Season…

Inspiration for your summer picnics, entertaining in August and celebrating Lughnasadh!

Lammas holds the spirit of Summer, around August 1st.

Whether you’re a fan of basking in the Sun or adore marking the Pagan Lammas Sabbat, there’s bound to be so much you’re grateful for at this time of year.

After all, this is the onset of autumn!

Wheat is typically gathered between August and September, a time for crop harvesting but also the sound of laughter and play!

As the nights are long (but promise to get shorter), beach fires, picnics and games, romance and being with those you adore is a key part of this window…

Leo Season: Strength…

If you were to select a Tarot card for Lammas you might intentionally chose the Strength card, as this is the assigned card for Leo in the Tarot.

As Lammas or ‘Lughnasadh’ lands in the middle of Leo Season, we can look to this particular image for inspiration – particularly the ones above and below, which have lovely yellow, orange and golden tones.

Both show a maiden fearlessly interacting with a lion, a true indicator of how we should be at this time of year!

Planetary Ruler At Lammas: The Sun…

As Lammas always occurs around the end of July, beginning of August, the constant Sun shines in Leo, making this a Solar holiday.

We might like to honour the Sun, ruler of Leo, a wonderful motif to use at this time…

The Sun enjoys colours like gold and sunny tones, and plenty of candles can be used to represent the Sun, too.

Always be mindful never to leave a lit candle unattended readers!

Mustard, buttery yellow, copper, terracotta and bronze are my choice colours for this time – look to rust, cinnamon and peach!

Try to find these bold shades in nature…

I prefer using the pale tones for Cancer Season, for the meals when we need shade and to cool down.

Whereas Lammas holds vitality, a sense of abundance and generosity…

We can reap what’s been sown at this time, warm in our hearts!

This is an idea time for picnics and grazing tables – getting creative and having fun, with sports outdoors or playtime!

Honey, orange fruits and dried orange slices are an ode to the Sun…

Gather some of natures spoils from your path, and dry them as beautiful adornments for your home…

Go rich and sumptuous with decor, adding luxe touches and textures.

The first of three harvest festivals, Lammas is the midpoint between Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox.

Dahlias appear blooming, Tithonia and Zinnias too.

How do you like to celebrate?
