On Saturday morning I made our usual chocolate chip pancakes, but this breakfast was extra special because I set the table for fall and used these darling chalkboard placemats.

Leslie sent me a set and they are so fun! The chalkboards are so smooth and erase nicely. I drew a different fall-ish picture on each placemat.

In the center of the table I put a few pumpkins, apples and fresh flowers. Super simple, but it made it feel special–and it made it feel like fall!

I know kids would love to decorate their own placemats too. So fun!

You can buy your own chalkboard placemats here. Love it!

Do you have any special dishes or traditions to make a meal feel special every now and then?
