Harvest  Table ~

 There is a something so genuine  about the Thanksgiving holiday, non?

Perhaps that’s why  my favorite  Thanksgiving tables  are

simple, honest…authentic.

 With that in mind, I set a very low key and natural  harvest table.

It starts with a neutral linen tablecloth, laced with

touches of rich  fall color.

I fell for this muted red wreath,  made from rose hips.

It now hangs from twine on our hutch. Below,  

 our  last apple harvest of the season is arranged in

a simple French white bowl. 

A favorite childhood song verse, is scribbled in chalk. Is it familiar?

We used to sing this song on our way to Grandma’s house  :) Love.

On the table, a very  casual bittersweet  centerpiece, bound with torn linen. 

Acorns and fallen oak leaves dress up our rumpled 

 linen napkins. I’m big on table takeaways and when

I found these wooden berry cartons,

I thought they might be fun, filled with

soft wood shavings and apple juice,

in ‘old school’  single serving bottles.

 I was surprised to learn, that they are no longer made of glass!!

Oak leaves fill

our glass hurricanes…

Nothin’ fancy,

just a few

genuine fall touches,
