A fall table runner is a first step in changing out seasonal décor from summer to autumn. I crafted this runner from a drop cloth and some fall fabric that I inherited from my mother-in-law’s stash. With the addition of a bowl gifted to me from a friend’s mother and some volunteer gourds harvested in my garden, my kitchen table is ready for fall.
I had the best time enjoying watching the volunteer gourds that I used in the bowl for a centerpiece grow all summer. They sprouted from seed in compost applied to the garden in spring. I snapped this photo just before I harvested the gourds. The crazy vines grew all over my tomato cages and even on the deer netting on the side of the garden.
I like a volunteer plant that has decorating uses!
I am considering adding a border to either the ends or the sides of this runner to give it a bit more color and interest. What do you think? Sides, ends, both, or leave it alone?
Happy almost fall!
