Tablescaping in an Apple Orchard
You know you’re living a great life when you have too many friends and so you either have to have a 70th birthday party the size of the wedding or split it up into two fabulous parties. My mom is that lucky. We had her first 70th birthday party with family, close college lifetime friends and wonderful, supportive friends that she’s met traveling, post my dad’s passing. Round two will be in November.
The party was held at our special family ranch and we had a long sit down table in the apple orchard for 70 people.
This was my largest tablescape by far and so quite a bit of prep went into it. We wanted to go for a fall palate and that was dictated by the orange plaid napkins that I got at Pier 1.
Down the center of the table, we placed pumpkins, pomegranate buds, gourds and greens, all of which was foraged from the ranch.
We also put out mason jars filled with popcorn kernels and candles
It was such a fun weekend and a fabulous dinner, not to mention the food was out of this world – it was a pig roast. Yum!
I couldn’t have put this beast of a table together without the prep work help of my mom, and the day of help with my Aunt Brenda and sister in law, Bridget!! Thank you ladies for helping to carry pumpkins, cut down branches and place one apple after another after another after another.
Also, it must be noted that Grace matched the napkins. You know how I love a theme.
Also, the girls and I had a trio of vests on cause I can’t resist matching. I just can’t.
After dinner was dancing in our barn.
It was a wonderful night and best of all my mom had a blast!!
