Here in New York State, the nights are getting cool. As soon as that sun goes down, you look for your sweatshirt and are reminded that fall is fast approaching. In stores everywhere you see colorful fall mums and autumn decor. Do you like to entertain? Autumn is full of warm colors and cozy scents that resonate with so many of us. If you are planning on entertaining family and friends this fall it is easy to set the perfect table that celebrates the bounty of the autumn season.
I love decorating with natural elements that represent the fall harvest. Jack-Be-Littles, mums, sunflowers, gourds, pine cones and even real leaves bring the outdoors in and add dimension and color to the table.
