It’s so cozy and fun to walk through the park, wearing the first warm coat of the season from your closet and watching the leaves falling from the trees … hearing their crunching sound as you pass… Even chestnuts with their prickly shells, show us how nature is so special and unique! It can be a magical experience if you pay attention to it!!
But then, it starts to get colder and the nights come earlier, and you feel that all that magic will be gone in an instant.
Try to enjoy the best of it and bring home some of those warm colors – like leaves, pine cones, chestnuts, even moss – and set your table for a cozy dinner with friends!
The energy of those red, orange, honey and even brown tones, can give your table a colorful Autumn touch and will delight all of your friends for sure. Originality will be compensated! Add to this a few glasses of red wine and some candles, and you will see how the feeling of comfort settles in, even with the wind and rain outside!
After you gather all your decorations, arrange them randomly on your table to create a long center piece. Add some different height candles to it.
If you don’t have complete sets of silverware this is not a problem because this is a relaxed table setting, you can mix and match different kinds of cutlery.
If you also have difficulty, like everyone else, keeping a full set of glasses in your house, because they are always breaking, then use the ones you have and mix them. It will be fun and stress-free, try it, or like we say – love the one you’re with!
Display all your plates.
Buy a branch of rosemary, or bring it from the garden, if you have it, to decorate the napkins. Tie them with a natural string. Nothing could be easier!!! If you want a special touch you can add small tags with everyone’s names. This will for sure delight your friends and save you time when it’s seating time. Everyone will be happy knowing where to sit. And the rosemary will give the room a light, fresh scent that will remind you of nature!
