Bringing the outside in
Fall has always been my favorite season. Since childhood the anticipation of school starting back and the holidays coming soon have given me a sense of good things, warmth and excitement. This means it’s a perfect time for sprucing up and tidying the house and yard to have things ready and refreshed for Fall entertaining. Warm days, cool nights – perfect!
The place I look first for adding to my dining room table or sideboard is in my yard. Nothing beats boughs of magnolia casually arranged in a crock or an elegant glass vase. In fact, you don’t need to add anything else – unless you’re a lover of sunflowers or those red-orange berries from the pyracantha bush at the corner of the deck. Fresh cuttings just make me feel good.
