Here’s how a nature walk can lead to a gorgeous Fall Festive table.
Collect pinecones, twigs, branches, tall grasses and some beautiful Fall leaves.
Rustic Napkin rings – Using vine type twigs, twist into circles and secure with twine or wire. Slide your napkins inside, add a rustic piece of wheat or ornamental grass and add a dried orange slice on top
Dried Citrus – slice thin pieces of grapefruit, oranges and lemons, place on a parchment lined baking sheet and roast for 3 hours or until crisp. Use over and over! Glue a slice to your place cards to add install Fall appeal.
TIP: I love selecting candle holders that have an area to add seasonal items. Here, I used simple popcorn kernels vase fillers and add some rustic twigs and berries. Next month, I’ll add cranberries and sprigs of Rosemary. Summer bring sand and seashells!
Scatter mason jars filled with clippings of ornamental grasses, berries and branches
Leftover Halloween pumpkins make great table décor
White Plates – easiest and cheapest to find, and BONUS – food looks better on white plates!
On your walk, collect some beautiful (recently fallen) leaves in various shapes. Coat with glue and cover with Fall toned glitter – let dry overnight and scatter around the table for sparkle
TIP: No tablecloth for that gathering, no problem! Check your local craft store fabric section and look for “end of bolt” clearance deals. This 20’ piece of linen cost $15. Also helps hide seams between tables when needing to push multiple tables together.
