Falling in Love


I love everything about Fall.

Football. The first time you get to pull out your sweaters and boots. The way the colors of the leaves changing every year never gets old. The abundance of baked goods made with pumpkins (yum). The excuse to set the perfect table with some of the below goodies.


I'll be honest, I don't know where to go to get wood slices for less but know there has to be someone out there that could do it. (I'm open for suggestions.) I think these wood slices would make the perfect chargers for an autumn place setting.

If this coverlet turned tablecloth isn't your style, then what about this circle tile art used down the center of your table as a runner instead?

I love the simplicity of Wooden Serving Pieces and the playfulness of these oversized Acorn boxes; both items that have great versatility as serving pieces (check the food-safety of the acorns as you may need to use a bowl inside them first) or containers for centerpieces.

Recreate (or buy!) these Twig Hurricane Candle Holders for a rustic touch to your table or add Brass Birch Tree Stands for a more rustic modern twist. Yes, I may have just made up "rustic modern."

Set the table, get the cider ready, light a fire and don't forget to invite me.

If you'll excuse me, I have pumpkin muffins to go dream about now.

Thanks for the Trailer Park comment. It's the easy party we've ever had. There are some great games I wanted to play, but because kids were present...had to keep it G rated. :)
