Creating A Bountiful Table With Joy and Gratitude

Autumn is the perfect time to create a bountiful table of joy and gratitude

Autumn, It isn’t my favorite time of year (I’m a summer weather kinda girl)…
Yet there is something about it that I do love.
Creating a Bountiful TAble with joy and gratitude
It’s the time of year that the weather brings us indoors and it’s perfect for
dinners of delicious food and good company.

It’s also a good excuse to dress up the table.

I like to mix up the formal with the casual

The Formal

  • Wine glasses
  • Folded Cloth Napkins
  • layered plates

The Casual

  • A casserole made with our Garden Harvest and Homemade Italian Sausage
  • A Loaf Sour Dough Rye Bread, on a wood cutting board
  • Simple treats for dessert, apples and homemade cookies
  • The curvy modern table runner
  • I think we can add the “wrinkled” table-cloth into the casual department…LOL!

About the Table Runner

The Table Runner is a re-make of the Modern Table Runner I made a few months ago.

I love how the style looks, meandering across the table in a casual, artsy way.

Table Toppers add a cozy spark to the table
