Celebrate Fall's Arrival with These Tablescape + Grazing Board Ingredients


Less than ten days until we make fall official! While the temps in Tennessee still soar above ninety degrees, the hues indoors are shifting to warmer tones and, in my home, beckon for harvest.

Last month, I brought bright greens, pinks and purples to the board. Now, our grazing board looks a bit more in line with autumn’s arrival, incorporating late summer/early fall produce such as apples, plums, figs and jams. And what better way to display such a graze-worthy gathering than with a rustic array of white + wood pottery?


Handmade in Peru, Montes Doggett pieces from Bella Vita are made by hand and truly one of a kind. I admire the variations in textures, shapes and sizes, making room for every appetizer or arrangement in your autumn toolkit. From vases to bowls to boards and napkin rings, Montes has mastered it.

And despite the array, the rustic white finish unifies a look that is aspirational yet attainable.
