Autumn anniversary Table

This week my parents will be celebrating their 49th wedding anniversary and usually this time of year I try to incorporate the colors of the season into the table.  Lots of warmth and texture always make for an inviting setup.  So when I found the mini pumpkins and the pumpkin side dishes at Target, I knew they would be my jumping off point for the color theme.  The brass leaf napkin rings are also a classic find from Target.

When I saw the deep red mums at my favorite flower market, I was drawn to them.  In my mind, I went back and forth with how they would blend with hues of blue and green, but now I’m digging the contrast.  Everything else in the vase came from my yard. Tip: Don’t be afraid to search your own property for interesting add-ins for floral arrangements!

The menu was a very simple, prepare-ahead list of items which I found mostly on Pinterest.

Honey Drizzed Apples with Gouda and Bacon

Autumn Tortellini Pasta Salad

Sweet Corn Pudding

Dessert was a delicious apple pie that I sampled a few weeks ago at Sam’s Club, and I knew I would be back to get it when I was entertaining.  I heated it slightly and served it with vanilla ice cream.  So yummy!

J’s parents joined us too.  Whenever we are all together we hear the same stories, the same names, and lots of laughter, and I love these kind of Sunday nights!  XO

Just like I love fine wine and dark chocolate, I'd love to hear from you too!
