Fall Progressive Dinner by 7 Fabulous Bloggers!

Happy Monday y'all!  I am so excited about today's post!  I've teamed up with my 6 favorite blogging ladies to bring you a "Fall Progressive Dinner"!   
And, YOU are invited! :)

Start at the top and work your way down to dessert!  By the time you're finished you'll have an entire Fall Dinner Party planned out!  From the table decor, to main course, to dessert, we've got you covered!

Natalie, AKA the Busy Budgeting Mama is as talented as they come.  She created these beautiful printables for my Fall Tablescape.  And, the best part?  
Make sure you stop by and download these for your table!

Now, let's get started by finding our seats!...

The place cards that Natalie created are so cute and they can be used for food labels too!

I used PicMonkey to personalize all of Natalie's Printables.  This menu card adds so much detail and color to the table!

Now, for the rest of the table.

I bought a pretty white pumpkin and planted a bright yellow mum right inside of it!

A big chevron bow helped finish off the look! 

The glittery pine cones were purchased from Wal-Mart and they were only a few dollars for the whole package. 

Now, for the fun part!  Where in the world do you put the kids?  Definitely not at this pretty table full of glassware and lit candles, right??

They need a cute little personalized table of their own!  You can literally throw this kids table together in minutes.

I used brown kraft wrapping paper as a tablecloth.  
I bought it at Dollar Tree for $1 per roll!


These treat bag tags are also part of Natalie's FREE PRINTABLE PACKAGE!

A few pumpkins and some crayons make for a very simple centerpiece!

The place mats are coloring pages!  Which means, while they wait for dinner or when they're finished, the kids can spend time coloring!
Plus, the table cloth is crayon friendly, too! :)

What do you think!?

I am loving the fun fall colors and the mix of chevron!

Are you hosting a Fall get-together soon?

Make sure you stop by all the other sites and finish up your planning!

Next up:  

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have an awesome week!
