I love seasonal decorating. (Hmm, wonder where I got that from??) Breaking out the autumn decor is especially fun, since there’s that whole shift to the indoors that occurs as the temperature cools. And right up there with decor is food. Who doesn’t love the smell of chicken soup, banana bread, apple sauce, and pumpkin pie oatmeal (which has taken the world by storm this week!)?
So, it goes without saying that I love to set my table with seasonal things! This year, I decided that what I really need are some everyday fall placemats that can be wiped clean after each meal. I didn’t have the money to actually buy any, but I did have this tutorial bookmarked, a new pile of cardstock in lots of colors, contact paper, and an hour last Sunday afternoon.
Sometimes making do works just fine.
