Simple Abundance

"It was one of those perfect English Autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life....." author P.D. James

This past weekend was certainly one made up of those memory-making perfect autumnal days. Driving up into Michigan Saturday to do some final antiquing for the upcoming Christmas Open House, I found the trees to be breathtakingly beautiful! It was one of those days which make you grateful to be alive.....and isn't that what autumn is all about.......being grateful for all of our abundant blessings?

The tables pictured here are inspiration for your fall entertaining, as were the tables that our guest speaker Cheri Grunske created last Thursday evening for the 45 guests who attended our Tabletop/Entertaining Seminar. Thanks to everyone who attended!

Don't you just love the touch of cobalt blue with the fall colors on the above table? (We currently have the pictured wicker placemats in stock.)

White pumpkins have become my favorite this year----they certainly fit in with anyone's decor. These white pumpkins and the white ironstone create a charming look against the weathered pine table.

I'd love to be invited to a fall picnic like this one! The stacked pumpkins in the garden urn, with a grapevine wreath surrounding the base, would be an easy centerpiece inside or out.

And a cozy table for two in front of the fireplace would be a delightful break during a busy work week!

I hope you enjoyed this wonderful weekend, and found time to count your autumnal blessings!

P.S. It's hard the believe the Christmas Open House is only two weeks from Sunday!!!! Be sure and put it on your calendar.
