Today's table is sent for two rather than the six or eight. This is my favorite time of year and I love setting a pretty table with lots of comfort foods. For this first fall tablescape I'm going with burlap and an outside setting with a small wicker table that does seat four but for today its just the two of us Our days are changing quickly here but we still have a few beautiful days left to enjoy a dinner outside.
I have to say I love the burlap runner that I made for this tablescape but I will NEVER work with burlap again. I was lucky with the loose weave of the fabric that the embroidery came out as clean as it did. Although the pattern was certainly easy enough, good grief just four seams I fought with this thing most of the day.
OK, I'm done whining so back to the tablescape. I chose an off white beaded plate for my base, the pheasant salad plates are a beautiful addition to the place setting. The napkins were a gift from my daughter and I love their ability to work with many settings. They are a pretty pattern and yet are neutral.

The "take home" gift is my homemade pepper jelly. This time of year I'm clearing the garden of the rest of the jalapeño peppers and making pepper jelly. I'll post the recipe for the jelly very soon.
Oh and of course don't forget for my friend Sheila....
