Fall Harvest Party for Two

When we bought this house almost a year ago, one of the things I knew I wanted to do was have a Harvest Party each fall.  Cody says we aren't quite ready to host a party (he wants to finish the driveway as well as some other things first).  So I said, can I host a Harvest Party just for us?  He liked that idea and I could hardly wait to get started! 
I love the big oak tree that we have in our front yard.  The leaves are starting to fall to the ground so this was the perfect place for my table. 
I used one of my flannel faux throws as the table cloth and the napkins that I made last week.  The Dollar Tree has really pretty fall leaf plates and water goblets that were perfect for this tablescape.   
The orange bowls will be full of homemade beef stew and the plates will hold buttered slices of french bread and crackers.   
These goblets will be the perfect vessel for apple cider or whatever we decide to drink tonight.  Those little raffia pumpkins are also from DT. 
I brought my leaf-wrapped candles out and put them on shorter candle sticks.  My acorns match perfectly with my plates. 
We went to the pumpkin patch last week and I loved this short round pumpkin.  The black lanterns are stuffed with fake little pumpkins and mini sunflowers. 
Cody was impressed with my Harvest Table and wondered how soon dinner would be!  I love that he goes along with my crazy ideas and embraces them right along with me. 
The big tall pumpkin leaning against the pole was made by my mom.  She collects railroad nails on her walks and uses them as pumpkin stems.  I love the wood pumpkins that she makes and gives to me! 
For dessert tonight, we are having apple cobbler.  Lots of yummy brown sugar and cinnamon in the crumble topping makes my house smell amazing! 
I was going to use my vintage green metal chairs, but Cody suggested I use my white dining room chairs.  I think his suggestion was perfect.  The color on the chairs is perfect for a fall tablescape. 
Hopefully next year we will be ready to invite our family and friends to a Harvest Party, just like I've been dreaming about.  Until then, I will totally take this Harvest Party for just him and I!
