~The Forest Feast Gatherings Book, Autumn Mannequin & Succulent Pumpkin and Simple & Sweet Fridays #245~

I wanted to share with you the new book,
~The Forest Feast Gatherings~
It's written by Erin Gleeson.
She also has written;
~The Forest Feast for Kids~
~The Forest Feast~
Simple Vegetarian Recipes
from My Cabin in the Woods
I found these paper placemats from a paper store which are inspired by
Erin Gleeson's books.
There are 5 placemat designs.
Erin Gleeson does the photography, recipes, illustrations, 
food styling and text in all of her books. 
Her books have wonderful recipes and 
creative ideas to decorate your table.
I was inspired by her books to set a table for Fall with flowers from our garden. 

I think it came together nicely!
I just love Erin Gleeson's books and hope you do too.

Our mannequin is dressed up for Fall.
My friend, Virginia, made this crown for me.
It fits perfect on the Autumn mannequin.
I tied Fall branches with jute.
Added a green burlap bow.

I also made some succulent pumpkins.
Hot glued the succulents and moss.
A pretty Autumn display!
