Our amazing chef Lisa, who is also the co-founder of Cedar Lakes Estate, came up with a gorgeous spread that was packed full of the flavors of autumn. Buckets of harvested squash, plums, pears from local farmers loosely scattered on the moss tainted dock, a silver platter with baked camembert topped with thyme and fresh cranberries, ficelle toasts, local honey, figs, persimmons, beautiful green Niagra grapes and deep inky concord grapes.

100 Layer Cake colorboard

If you couldn’t tell, we’re loving the rich hues that fall brings. It’s the perfect excuse for moody color schemes, lots of texture, and a romantic flair for all our events. We fell in love with a similar palette when we featured a dark enchanted masquerade party shoot last month and haven’t quite moved on… The deep colors accented by gold + a dusty gray-purple like smoke set the tone for a cozy, yet glamorous wedding or party.

Thanksgiving table ideas | 100 Layer Cake

So have you guys started planning for Thanksgiving yet? Not gonna lie, this holiday can really sneak up on us unsuspecting bloggers, busy swooning over other lovely events and whatnot. Things can get stressful fast so we thought we’d ease ourselves into planning mode by going on a mini (well our idea of mini) virtual shopping spree at all our fave entertaining spots. This copper basket is a good start, we think.

Copper is such a wonderful basis for a Thanksgiving color scheme, don’t you think? We’re also still into gold (but we didn’t need to tell you that!), like with those glasses above.

Marble is also big lately and we don’t hate it! Why not add a little modern flair a marble house ware or two?

So… What’s on your décor shopping list this season?
