Sixty degrees on the first Saturday of November in Minnesota deserves a celebration! My sis called and said she had a hankering for some "Brown Bears." That called for a harvest bonfire. Come and enjoy the night with us!
Can't have a bonfire without decorations!
I love to use old pictures on my table outside. The picture on the right is of my husband's great-great-aunt picking the fall harvest. It's one of my favorite fall images.
Railroad or kerosene lanterns hanging from garden stakes are a great way to light up your party.
Big Fireman's aunt made these twig chairs for me. Aren't I the luckiest girl in the world???
Plenty of candles and lanterns on hand. It got dark fast!
Plenty of logs for seating, and popcorn for snacking.
My sister even decorated the water bottles.
My new soup tureen from Target inspired the meal. We had Zuppa Tuscana. Yum!
Remember these floating apple candles from Martha Stewart?
I love these canisters. I use them for everything. Here they are holding marshmallows and hot cocoa.
Can't have a bonfire without the hot cocoa!
Or sweet friends! These two beautiful girls are friends from our church. Our entire family adores them. The woman on the right recently conquered cancer with dignity and grace and only wanted to glorify God through her experience. They are both such awesome women. Our family just loves them and were tickled they could spend the evening with us!
As the night went on, the table looked beautiful.
The night was perfect for a bonfire. There aren't too many November nights in Minnesota that you can entertain outside.
The Middlest Sister and me. Can't have a night without a self-portrait! We laughed so hard trying to take this picture ourselves.
