celebrating fall


{pumpkin inspiration}


{strawberry inspiration}


{artichoke inspiration}

Now that fall is officially upon us, I am dying to throw a fun, fall themed soiree! The Fall Celebration Challenge over at City Cradle Design is chock-full of fantastic ideas. My favorite entries were centered around pumpkins, strawberries and artichokes. Now that's what I call a bountiful harvest!
