A fall-inspired table with wood chargers and blue and white dinnerware

In three days, it’s officially Fall which means the start of the entertaining season. While that may give of you a chill, we love this time of year when we get to spend time with friends and family in our homes that we’ve spent all year working on. So it should come as no surprise that we love dreaming up new tabletop looks to celebrate the season! Inspired by the colors and textures of fall, we pulled together this dining table featuring our Wood Bark Chargers and Bunny Williams’ Campbell House Dinnerware.

How to Set up a buffet for parties or family gatherings

It’s the season for entertaining, which means if you haven’t already started planning your holiday gathering or family events, you will be soon! As they should, most get togethers revolve around food, so while you don’t have to make things complicated, it’s always important to put some advanced thought into either making or buying something (hey, we aren’t above prepared dishes or catering!) delicious for your guests. The next step is setting up a buffet, which can sometimes feel intimidating.
