I'm not entirely sure that this orange roses / pine needles concept actually works, but I thought it was a cool idea. Sort of celebrating the last of summer and bracing for the incoming winter. :-)
There are two photos here mostly so you can fully appreciate my compulsive insanity -- I ended up spending a couple of hours yesterday making a table runner and napkins out of a yard or two of leftover sari fabric. This is what happens when other people are bringing most of the food.
Yup. Food. :-)
