Fall Leaves and Acorns Tablescape

As the leaves are just about down and all the acorns are on the ground, I have set a table to bid goodbye to the beautiful days of fall.  
From here on out our fall is turning to colder days and bare trees leading into the next season. 
My sister contributed the dried hydrangeas for the centerpiece, seeing as how my hydrangea just quit blooming a couple of years ago and I still haven't figured out what it's problem is! 


 I love these burlap leaves I found, they were actually on a big branch - but I pulled a few of the leaves off to adorn my place settings. 
 I just love all the colors of fall and really don't look forward to the grey, cold weather ahead.
 Just after I took these photos, our first real snow started falling! 
I used to not mind the winter when my boys were playing hockey - it kind of made the winter around here bearable.  Now that they are all grown up and we are no longer as involved in the hockey scene, winter is not as fun.  Although I am one of those weird people who loves a good snow storm!!

So farewell to fall as we start to prepare for Thanksgiving and the colder weather ahead.
Thanks for stopping by.
