I recently hosted a luncheon for her and her bridesmaids. We had a lovely afternoon. The girls are all such sweet young women. I felt honored to have them visit our home. Here are some shots of the afternoon we shared together...
I used seasonal items to decorate. The centerpiece on my main dining table was a tray filled by a stoneware pitcher of sunflowers with English ivy woven through piles of various types of pumpkins. I also wove burlap ribbon through the pumpkins and ivy.
It was all very fall-ish, natural, and low-key.
The Blue Willow plates were perched atop silk place mats which were the same shade of tan as the burlap to continue with the neutral background but added just a hint of shimmer to the table. I used simple brown swirl napkins that I'd crafted and wooden napkin rings.

We all enjoyed sharing stories and laughing and learning about Becca's plans for the wedding.
When all the young women left (Yes, Brenda, I'm counting you as a young woman, too!), I certainly felt blessed to have been able to share my afternoon and our home and pray that my niece, Becca has many similar opportunities in her future!
