The Harvest Table - A Work of Art


My friend, Sally, who lives in New Hampshire, sent this picture of her autumn harvest table arrangement -- a little something she just threw together. Simple and beautiful.

I think the big leaves of whatever kind of greens they are and the pale green colors of the squashes make it.

I'm going out to the garage to root around in the big plastic tub of fall decorations to see if I have what I need to create something similar.

What if I don't have any of those green leafy things though? Then I'll want to go to town and dig through all the fall stuff at JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts, Wal-Mart, and maybe I'll even have to drive all the way to Steven's and Target. Time. Trouble.

If I can't get it together, then I'm going to print out five copies of the picture on the color printer and glue them around an appropriately sized cardboard box and set it in the center of my table.

Come to think of it, I can go to the garage another day.  

So . . . shall I put up a picture of my box arrangement when I've finished it?

Would you like for me to send you my new Autumn Harvest Table Arrangement Kit?

Will that be the Economy Kit -- 5 photos plus glue stick, box not included, or the Deluxe Eco Kit -- Economy Kit, plus shipping box that doubles as part of the arrangement?

Thanks, Sally! You're always such an inspiration to me!

Ha! Cora!!
I love your sense of humor and your recipes look great!
I live in the "Metro East", actually just about 20 minutes from the Arch.
Glad to hear that PW is just as great as she is on her blog!
Thanks for the visit!!!

Cora, could you be interested in my mother's recipe for cranberry molded salad? It's got all sorts of lovely things in it & I think you'd like it...

Have a VERY jolly Thanksgiving. And I DO want to be adopted for one of these events!
