A Fall celebration- the Harvest Dinner

Saturday night I hosted my annual Harvest Dinner. We already had a pumpkin on the front steps and the leaves cooperated. They fell in all the right places. All I needed to do was add a dried hydrangea wreath to the front door.

I had just finished setting the table. As I admired my tablescape I decided to take a few photos. Percy, the champion photobomber decided to come for dinner.

A vintage tablecloth with lace edging was layered with a pumpkin colored lighted table runner. I love the pop of color and the ambiance the tiny lights create.

I bought pumpkins and some leaves from the Dollar Store. I use them in business too! The pumpkins were a takeaway gift for my guests.

One bouquet of Fall flowers from Trader Joe's became three small arrangements.Two floral arrangements in vintage bottles graced the table and a third in a mason jar was placed in the condo's common area.

I always use my green goblets for the Harvest Dinner. The table always needs a little green to break up the orange. Now you can see the tiny lights in the runner!

The menu was as follows:  turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce,  cream cheese mashed potatoes, butternut squash, apple pie, chocolate cake, pumpkin muffins, and maple leaf cookies.

One last photo. The party was over and time for a little rest before the cleanup. Time to put Harvest Dinner 2013 to bed.

Gorgeous tablescape and yummy meal! I love the pic of Percy at the table! :)
This looks like it was a fantastic time. Your table is so pretty, even Percy blends in well! The lighted runner is genius! And a great menu, get's me in the mood for the big one coming up! Your pie is beautiful, I love the little cut outs.

Thanks for your comment today. I popped over and saw that I had fallen off your Follower list. This has been happening to me all the time lately and I don't know what to do about it. Anyway, I shouldn't be missing any posts.

Once again, another beautiful tablescape for your Harvest Dinner. I have never seen a lighted table runner before; a perfect touch. Can Percy get any more adorable??!!
In one of your photos I can see a beautiful china hutch filled to the brim!! Can you show more of that one day?? Would love to see all the china.
Elaine, your tablescape is stunning! You should be a decorator!

Have a great weekend!
