With the leaves falling, the air turning crisp, it is the perfect time to get in one last picnic before it is too cold.
Fall is one of my favorite seasons. Kids are back in school, the usual routines are back in order and the holidays are quickly approaching. This is the time to take a breather and enjoy the company of friends. I can’t think of a better way to do it than under a tree, hot cider in hand, amongst the beautiful fall leaves. It’s a perfect afternoon for your soul!
There is something so beautiful about being out in nature and enjoying God’s beautiful creation. For a brief moment, the crazy in life goes on pause and you have the chance to grab a moment, exhale and take it all in. Sip on that hot apple cider, catch up on the latest news and watch the squirrels scamper around the yard burying treasure for the winter months.
Step 5: I created a table for the drinks to be served from by stacking a couple of crates. It needed a little more height so I added the drinks on top of a cake platter.
Step 6: Enjoy the fun with your friends! My recipe for Hot Apple Cider and the most delicious Caramel Apple Dip you have ever eaten are here in my recipes!
It is not hard to create a place for friends to gather, perfection is not the goal,connection is the key! Be the one to extend an invite, and in return, others will follow too. Create a space that says, you are welcome here. Make the effort to open a space for hearts to be fed and filled, enjoy the gifts of nature God has blessed us with!
