Gather Outdoors in a Glorious Fall Setting

Ethereal Enchantment 

A neutral color scheme lets nature speak boldly as a scene of soaring wild fowl adorns a bowl framed by a creamy dinner plate and a gleaming charger—a nod to the regal tree. The avian motif is repeated with feathered napkin rings holding vine-embroidered linens.

Smoky gray water glasses, clear stemware, and pearlescent flatware lend a serene quality bolstered by the four stately white columns of the Mitchell House near Alabama’s Lake Martin. Hearkening back to days gone by, the broad veranda awaits the gathering of companions for intimate after-dinner conversation and entertaining tales.
