Autumn Patterns 0

Fall is here and so are the autumn patterns.  There are patterns to our weather in this season that let us sleep soundly with windows open, gently rocked by the cool breezes.  And autumn patterns show up ion our drives down Main Street when the fall colors dance overhead. The tree canopy changes in autumn to a true work of art. And autumn patterns show up in our gardens where fall foliage like mums take over the spring and summer blooms.  And in the party store, autumn patterns are on the shelves. There are plates and napkins,  wreaths and centerpieces in the array of colors we think of as representing fall.  We move away from the bright summer shades of pink and yellow or patriotic patterns used for the summer holidays and into the deep reds and orange and brown and yellows that resemble the trees outside.  And, then of course, there are the football patterns that we also associate with fall! 

By Thanksgiving we in the Midwest may have snow on the ground. It is not unheard of. But on our table will be the autumn patterns - the lush fall colors that make a house feel like a home. The colors make us think of soup on the stove, turkey in the oven, and hot apple cider.  

Enjoy autumn and all the autumn patterns because in the blink of an eye it will pass.

To make your Super Bowl party contributions extra special, there is an array of football party supplies. The football party platter, Super Bowl 50 plates and napkins are all designed for this year’s game in the Bay area.  Football party decorations that will be available include special colors for the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. And while the Denver Broncos decided to wear their white uniforms for the game, there is nothing stopping us from using their team colors in our décor.  If you show with black, blue and silver, there will be no doubt that you’re rooting for the Carolina Panthers in this match; whereas we expect to see our Broncos fans donning their orange and navy. But don’t stop with your attire. Stop by the party store to pick up party supplies that show your team spirit.
