Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I hope you all are spending time with your families today and enjoy lots of yummy food! And if you have time, this is a great chance to get some planning done! If anything, share things with your family members and keep them in the loop. They always like to know wedding planning updates, right? :)

Okay, now moving on, I have this adorably sweet Fall tablescape from Robin Nathan Photography to share with you all today! It’s was fashioned as inspiration for an engagement party, complete with doughnuts as the centerpiece! YUM! I have a little bit about the shoot from Jamie, the designer and “model” for the shoot!

As we were discussing the photo shoot concept, we kept coming back to the fact that we wanted it to look comfortable, lovely, and inspired by all things autumn. As I thought about what comfort and autumn meant to me, I couldn’t help but reflect on the many autumns I had spent in the Midwest finding comfort in my mother’s cooking, the crispy crunch of orange-y, golden leaves, and lots of steaming cups of tea paired with sweet treats.

One of my fondest fall memories took place in Michigan at the Dexter Cider Mill, where I stood in line for an hour in early November waiting for their famous apple cider doughnuts. My friend and I sat out back and savored the fresh, warm doughnuts between gloved fingers and warmed our bones with hot apple cider, enjoying the clear skies through the changing foliage. Though I live in Atlanta now, I thought it would be fun to recreate my favorite fall memory in the Dexter Cider Mill and the Irwin Street Market provided the perfect backdrop. We made the doughnuts the focal point of the table and used simple materials reminiscent of the Midwest like wheat and river birch branches to bring the room to life.

My favorite part of the room was the sky blue walls that really reminded me of the sunny Midwest skies on a clear, cloudless Fall afternoon. We wanted the room to reflect a laid back, craft- meets -vintage engagement party where every guest leaves with their sweet tooth satisfied. Robin sweetly asked that my fiance and I pose for the shoot, as we were recently engaged, and still living on the “high” of our engagement. It was so fun to share this moment with my honey, as he got to see what really happens when I spend hours perfecting my DIY style.
