Warm Connections {Day 2}: Bringing the Beauty of Autumn to Your Table

Setting a beautiful table is one of my favorite elements of entertaining. I don’t get stressed or frazzled about it, simply because I don’t over-think it.

The table is the least of my worries. It’s not going to make or break the evening, even though it does provide a sense of ambience.

The food, the conversation, the people … I really think it’s our attitude, words, and encouragement that we give or that others give us that make us better people.

As we begin to enjoy the change of the seasons, natural light taking on a golden glow, we can bring out the candles, take a walk and gather the simple beauties of nature that can add a touch to the table, or in my case, pull off to the side of the road when you see a beautiful tree and pick up a few leaves.

If we slowed down and took a look at the simple things around us, we’d have calmer attitudes about entertaining and practicing hospitality.

Capturing the moment comes when we bring the beauty of autumn home by gathering a few reminders.

One easy step to enjoying the stunning colors of a fall leaf by placing a few under the goblets on your table.

When’s the last time you took a stroll through nature and brought it back to your table?

  6. I’ve always loved this idea! My daughter and I were asked one year to come up with an impromptu center piece for the Thanksgiving table. We headed out the front door and came back with leaves, sticks, rocks, flowers, and made a beautiful arrangement. The best part was that we made a cool memory that will last forever! Thanks for sharing!

  11. I am looking for real linen napkins in a linen beige color. Any idea where to find them. I need at least 24. I found them at Williams Sonoma for $48 for 4. I really need a better deal but a quality product. Can you help?
