Easy Transition From Fall To Winter...Entertaining Ideas

This week we're giving a short presentation with visuals, hand outs and a couple of on site tablescapes for a group of about 250 young Mother's at my church.

The goal is to keep it simple and affordable...

We thought we'd share some of the visuals and presentation with you...

Entertaining starts at the front door with a warm welcome...

Pumpkins can even be used as risers...Varied heights are a must for tablescapes...
