Alright I give its fall! Time to put together some fall tables and fall desserts. Inevitably, I had to give in. The seasons change and I just have to go with it. Actually, fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the changing colors and of course the baking. In order to give myself an extra shot of fall adrenaline, I took a trip down Sweet Sensations memory lane and pulled a few of my favorites to share with you.
Favorite Fall Tables and Fall Desserts
One important lesson I’ve learned over the years it to be true to myself. I have comfortably settled into my decorating style and I’m quite happy here. Looking back at my previous tables there is a definite color palette and style that I love. My children would be ecstatic if I veered away from my earth tones and other 70’s colors. All I need is a touch of avocado green here and there and I’m good to go! The other crucial lesson is to stay within your budget. Setting a beautiful table and creating a comfortable ambience is not about high prices. Buy what you can afford and do the best with what you have. These two tables feature thrift store finds and pieces I’ve found on sale.
If you have a Burlington’s department store near you, check it out. The prices are affordable and they carry many of the same items as TJ Maxx
Let them Eat Cake
I could have gone on forever with this category! In my ideal world, I could eat cake all day, everyday without weight gain or health consequences. Ah, but such is not life. Cake receives a warm welcome here year round but there is something special about fall baking that tugs at my soul. Maybe it’s the warming spices, or the gathering of family during the holidays. Whatever it is, it’s comforting.
This one ranks in the top three of my all time favorite cakes. I’m a member of the Cake Slice Bakers and this is the first cake I baked from our current book, Southern Living the Southern Cake Book. There is so much texture and flavor going on here and it freezes very well.
Say that 10 times fast! This is one of those “a lil dab will do ya” cakes. It’s not particularly fancy but it will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Now it’s time for something new.
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
