Just a little over a week ago, I hosted our 3rd annual Fall Entertaining Workshop + Dinner!  I am the worse at taking pictures, but I did snap a few right before the ladies arrived......


I really wanted to host the ladies outside, in our back yard.  Would you believe the entire week was just beautiful.....sunny and 70's.  Friday morning, the rain came!  It was gray and wet, but the clouds started to lift later in the morning, just as the weatherman said!  It turned out to be such a lovely evening, just enough chill in the air to make it feel like Fall!


We made a darling Fall banner out of vintage book pages.  Even the so called "non-crafty" ladies enjoyed making their banners and they turned out so cute!

We talked about the heart of hospitality, having grace with ourselves, and practical tips for entertaining and hosting.

Each lady received a goody bag to take home  A local soap maker (Rough Cut Soap Co.) made the most beautiful soap to add to each bag, a very generous gesture that meant so much to me!


We enjoyed home made sweet potato + black bean salsa with tortilla chips and chilled white wine while we chatted.  For dinner, the ladies were served butternut squash + black bean chili, buttermilk biscuits, and honey crisp apple salad.  After their bellies were full, coffee was served as well as vanilla ice cream over caramel apple crisp.  

It was such a fun evening with such a fun group of ladies.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to get to host classes and meet so many incredible ladies!  I hope you and your family are enjoying Fall and looking forward to opening your home to family and friends.
