The splendor of a perfect autumn day
delights my senses and makes this time
of year my favorite season.
Leaves in hues of gold
and russet brown drifting down,
pumpkin stands, a nip in the air,
bowls of hearty steaming soups ~
all provide a sense of joy and merriment
after the long, hot days of a Texas summer.
~ Swirling Autumn Leaves ~
~ English Country Vistas ~
~Autumnal Touches ~
Each plate a different enchanting scene
in perfect shades of pumpkin.
I knew immediately that I wanted
to add these to our autumn tables.

That gave me six for salads and
six for a dessert buffet.
Of course I had to have the Harvest Hostess Tray too!

My tip for serving ice cream on a dessert buffet :
Place a pretty napkin in a glass container,
slip a carton of ice cream into the napkin,
and you instantly have a pretty ice cream server.
