From The Rafters
Rays of sun, rustic lanterns, and a simple chandelier shed some light on an oft-unexplored entertaining ground: the barn. Blanketed in rust-colored cloth and a burlap overlay tied with twine, round tables provide plenty of seating for this casual yet classy occasion. New plaid rugs serve as runners on the table and can be repurposed post-party, while julep cups and painted pails become clever containers for cheery floral arrangements.
Make the most of autumn’s inviting atmosphere, and stage the party inside and out. Serve this spread buffet style, and round up some of Mister Ed’s favorite treats—orchard-fresh apples—and place basketfuls along the table for decoration and delectation.
