Autumn is my favorite time of the year, in part because the season embraces comfort foods. Pumpkin bars, creamy soups served in bread bowls, chicken pot pie … I read somewhere that a classic recipe is like a sheet of music—one can choose to follow along, mimicking it to the letter, or experiment by changing it up a bit. I’ve done this many times with my mother or grandmother’s original recipes, adding my own special touch while still giving them credit for the inspiration.

Early October is when I typically pull out my ‘fall artillery’… twigs and branches replace summer florals. Bright fabric pillows and throws give way to chunky, textured ones in autumnal tones. And lastly, I can’t think of this time of year without candles and scents in amber, cinnamon, cedar, and vanilla filling my home.

In this issue, our contributor Michelle Horst of Thyme & Theory shares her tips for decorating a kid-friendly, natural harvest table. Few homes fit fall better than the historic Edgar Zabriskie House, which is being lovingly cared for and enjoyed by the entertaining Pasqualettos, who love to host friends and family in its late nineteenth-century dining and drawing rooms. Enjoy this Bemis Park beauty in all its party grandeur.
