As promised, I’m sharing a few sneak peeks from inside the pages of my book before its release on October 28th, and these shots from Setting the Fall Table are some of my faves…
In the book, each season kicks off with inspiration for setting the table for a dinner party — flowers, linens, dishes, DIY elements, and more. Of course, each concept is meant to simply be a launching pad for your own creativity, and with fall’s arrival, my thoughts turn to cozying up the dining room and making the table an inviting spot where everyone slows down and lingers awhile. It’s the place where our family gathers during the week to talk and catch up about the events of the day…and where our friends gather on weekends for long pancake brunches or dinners with red wine and hearty bowls of soup.And of course, the table is the real star of the show on Thanksgiving, when it’s transformed into a cornucopia of delicious food and everyone gathers around for the biggest feast of the year. For fall’s table setting, I was inspired by the jewel-toned richness of wine country: trailing vines dripping with grapes and the unexpected interplay of rustic textures and ornate detailing. In the book, I share all the simple details on putting the entire look together, from DIY’ing the linen napkins and making the place card, to creating that gorgeous centerpiece in shades of purple and my favorite dishes that I used to set the table.
Can’t wait for you guys to see the rest of it when the book is out, and if you haven’t already, be sure to preorder your copy today (and receive your special limited edition gift!)
