Next I added a cheap twiggy wreath centerpiece with a hurricane lamp from my wedding, some leaves from the dollar store, sugared pumpkins, and a set of brown cloth napkins. To add color to the table, I bought 1 1/4 yards of fall looking fabric, ran a seam around the edges with my sewing machine, and voila! Instant color.
I decided to go ahead and spend an extra $10.00 to buy a set of 16 smoky brown drinking glasses, and I'm so glad I did! I think they gave the table a great fall look.
The banquet was such a blessing! The speakers were wonderful, and we ate dinner with some dear friends that my husband works with. I was so glad that we were able to host a table this year. There were tables decorated all different ways...some with beautiful china and ornate, golden edged silverware, and some with cowboy boots, bandanna napkins, tin plates and wildflower bouquets. Each one was as special and unique as the person who hosted it.
I hope this inspires you to go and grab those fall decorations and get them out on display!
