As much as I have resisted the coming of fall, the calendar says it’s here, and I am taking baby steps to welcome it.
The first step is purchasing pumpkins and gourds. With their varied colors and textures, they are my favorite offerings of the season.
Company is coming for dinner, so the first place they are going to be used is as a centerpiece on the dining room table. They are arranged on a fall colored tablecloth that has been folded to serve as a runner.
With so much color to work with, the rest is easy. As they so often are, the versatile Dollar Tree plates are a good choice.
This time they are on a flared placemat from TJ Maxx and topped with a fall themed napkin folded to have the pumpkin image front and center.
Until I walked out into the yard, I thought glasses and flatware were the finishing touches to the table.
Wind had littered the ground with small branches which I gathered to throw away. As I was breaking them up it occurred to me that the smaller twigs would be a fun addition to the centerpiece. I am a believer that anything can work.
So there you have it, the table is finished and is just as warm and friendly as the folks who will gather there.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
