Delicious Autumn!

"Delicious autumn!  
My very soul is wedded to it, 
and if I were a bird I would fly about 
the earth seeking the successive autumns."  
George Eliot

Today we close the door on my favorite season 
and give way to the rush of holiday 
fever as we welcome December.

I hope each of you enjoyed a 
delightful Thanksgiving with family and friends.
Thanksgiving at our home was truly just that!

We hosted a much smaller group than usual,
but the afternoon was one of the best.
The chef prepared a non-traditional meal.

Perfect Filet Mignon in Rich Demi Glaze
Roasted Vegetable Slaw
Garlic Tart
Potatoes Dauphinoise
Lemon Meringue Pie
Pecan Pie

I'm a self confessed dishaholic and setting
a beautiful table is a priority for me.
This year's Thanksgiving table was set for four.
No linen tablecloth, just simple woven reed
chargers atop the bare wood of the table
to add texture to our crisp white wedding china.

I topped each with one of Juliska's Harvest Country Estate
dessert plates to give some added color
and removed them for serving dessert later.

Mini bouquets the colors of autumn, 
wrapped in burlap, and tied with ribbon
paraded down the center of our table 
and were gratitude gifts for our
two guest to take home.

We ended our meal with
sweet treats, a fitting goodbye to
Delicious Autumn!
