How was your weekend?
We had some beautiful fall weather, ideal for picnicking!
Fall is my favorite season with its quintessential mums and pumpkins . . .
Sweater weather and warm plaid layers . . .
Fall foliage and leaf peeping.
We’re weeks away from peak fall foliage but little pockets of color are starting to appear and temperatures are dipping down in the 30s this week that will help speed up the process.
We enjoyed a little alfresco dining on the pontoon this weekend while we were docked to enjoy the crisp fall air without the breeze from boating.
I pulled out the pumpkins, gathered a few leaves and plaid blankets and set a table for two.
Wood slice chargers and lanterns. . .
Amber goblets to enjoy a glass of hard cider from a North Carolina winery.
A vintage plaid Redmon picnic basket is sturdy and roomy and was a $15 find at a favorite antique mall last year.
And a variety of cheese, meat, crackers, and olives from the olive bar at the grocery store makes for easy picnicking any time of year.
Cheese straws, grapes, fig preserves and almonds.
