My Fall Entertaining Favorites | USA Today's Modern Woman Magazine

I was recently asked to contribute my favorite Fall Entertaining products for the latest edition of USA Today's Modern Women magazine. 

I sent them many, many products and they selected their favorites from my submissions.  So, I wanted to go ahead and share those in the article and my other favorites with you as well.

Pewter Oval Footed Bowl, $460.00
Fill this elegant bowl with seasonal produce like fruit or gourds for a handsome harvest centerpiece.
Bourbon Vanilla Sugar, $23.40 for 3 pack
Easily add the warmth of vanilla to coffee or dessert with this gourmet Bourbon Vanilla Sugar when you're entertaining on a crisp Fall day.

Libeco Tea Towels, $11.00
These classic towels are the perfect accent to use under your hot platters for a family style meal.  I'm sure you notice these all of the time in my photos!

Natural Beeswax Candles, $33
Creative Candles are the absolute best, clean burning candles.  Classic.

Arches Lanterns, $24.00-79.00
These lanterns provide instant ambiance for a cozy dinner.

Pewter Chargers, $250.00
These rustic, yet elegant chargers make any setting seem stately and refined.

Maple Paddle Board, $54.95
I use this board to serve a bountiful spread of cheeses - very casual and chic.

Chocolate Brown Monogramed Linen Napkins, $49.95 for 4
You'll never notice a stain on these elegant linens.  The monogram is a must for every host!  Love that the brown is shown with an "H" embroidered!

Emile Henry Pie Dish, $45.00
Not just for pies, it makes a beautiful service piece for baked casseroles and side dishes for a family style meal.

Graphite Staub Cocotte
I use this impressive crock for cozy fall favorites like boeuf bourguignon - it goes straight from the oven or stovetop to the table.

Pottery Barn Pumpkin Serve Bowl, $14.50
I love these fun and seasonal bowls - they will completely make your table and party!


  1. I love the pie dish! Since I'll be flying this week, I will pick up that magazine. Thanks!

  2. Great Job! I have a couple of the Pottery Barn's pumpkin serving bowls and love them.

  3. I LOVE that Pottery Barn pumpkin serve bowl - here's hoping that they deliver to the uk!

    I've noticed in your previous posts other beautiful pewter pieces. I was pleased to see that two pewter pieces were chosen to be featured in the magazine, are there any other pewter items that you would recommend as an entertaining must have?

  5. Great pics! I love your classic entertaining style!
