Fall Fireplace Mantle

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Fall is here!  If you have a fireplace mantle in your home, this is a simple way to decorate it now that will carry through Thanksgiving.  

Cover with some greens, add a variety of small pumpkins including some gold for glam, and finish with a couple of simple white candles.  

Everything I used is (fake!) from Michaels so I only had to buy it once, but it would look stunning with real greenery and pumpkins!

Fall Sangria

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

This Fall take on Sangria is perfect for any Fall activity, from sipping on a chilly deck to serving at Thanksgiving.  Since it's Maroon and Gold it's even great for Gopher tailgating! 

Fall Sangria
 To a pitcher or craft add:
 1-2 cinnamon sticks
1-2 apples, cubed
2 orange slices

Fill with half apple cider, half white wine (I use Sauvignon Blanc, but any white will do).

The rations are just a suggestion and can be altered to taste. Make a day ahead for the flavors to incorporate.  Serve with some of the fruit in each glass.  I'll add more wine and cider to the same pitcher as I drink it so I can make it once and enjoy all weekend!
