The names have all been drawn, and the September 2nd OWG Farm to Table dinner event is on! And now, we need a little help with some ideas to decorate our outdoor table that night!

We want to make the table special for our guests, and we thought maybe all of our followers could help with suggestions.

Here is what we have to work with. The setting will be one long row of wooden tables and chairs in the open field beside the farm. The plates are white, and of course, we have mason jars for glasses. Now – help us make it great from there with your ideas!  

Please feel free to let us know of any thoughts or suggestions in the comment section at the bottom of the page.  And now, on to the selections!

The Farm To Table Invite Winners

By midnight August 5th, we ended up with 1256 applicants from 38 states. Including 4 from outside of the country. The two automatic bids for attending from the longest distance went to Roger Hazeldine from Bankok, Khoa Yai, Thailand, and Fitzi Grant and D’arcy from Ottawa, Ontario. 

We trialed our first Facebook Live video from the farm yesterday to start drawing names for the 40 guests. We included that video below in case you need a good laugh! 

Of the first five names drawn – Ohio, Virginia, Indiana and New York were all represented! We continued on drawing and came up with a list of 40 attendees and 20 alternates. 

For a list of all names drawn, along with alternates, you can check out our farm to table attendee page here : Farm to Table Attendee Selections. 

We will be notifying all selected via email over the next few days. If any cannot attend, we will go in order on the alternate list to fill out the seats at the table.

Thank you to everyone who entered! We wish we could have invited all – but I have a feeling 1256 people might have been an issue on our little 3 acre farm! Again, we would love any ideas from all on how to make our outdoor table perfect for our guests – so feel free to leave a comment below.

Looking forward to a great evening at the farm – Jim and Mary.

    Depending on how wide your tables will be, maybe some light colored burlap runners which would be easy to make. Some of your own raw or dried produce in low containers of some kind, the popcorn cobs, the garlic, the peppers, and cut flowers (not too high to promote conversation) in low vases. I know you like to make as much as you can and use what you have. Maybe throw in a few eggs! I’m sure it will be fun

    Similar to Judith’s suggestions: Burlap runner, large (not too tall as to obstruct cross table conversation) center piece made up of large fall themed or plaid ribbon bow with flowers, small pumpkins and gourds placed in the bow, mason jars candles, assorted silk fall leaves all over table
