This weekend we will be bringing out the box of fall decorations. We tend toward a spooky ghosts and pumpkin theme with a five-year old in our house. When we finish decorating, I will post some photos.
Meanwhile enjoy some more grown-up fall decor for those of you who will be entertaining.
Do entertain more. It doesn’t have to be a formal sit-down dinner. Pick a simple theme. Bring out your good china and crystal and mix it with some new quirky fall finds from a local store or with fresh fruit from the green grocer’s. Send your kids out in the yard to find fallen leaves and pine cones to add to your arrangement. Make them a part of the decorating process – kids love to get creative and a little bit messy in the process. Maybe they can even decorate some cupcakes or help you set the table.
I plan to invite over a few friends, set a beautiful table and enjoy a port and cheese tasting party later this fall.
I have a white tray or two in my china cabinet and am planning on setting my table with this tablescape this fall. I like its simplicity. It’s a bit modern.
This would be my daughter’s favorite! Problem is she would eat all of the candy corn.
I love the contrast of the green pears.
Never would have thought of an orange pepper in my fall arrangement – leave it to the creativity of Martha Stewart!
For a different twist, what says fall more than mums and apples?
I love to hear from you. How do you set your table for fall?
