In addition to setting out our autumn book basket last week, we also set up our autumn nature table. Sola has taken complete ownership over setting up our nature tables. As with our previous nature tables, I thought I’d take the time to highlight a few of the things that we have found over the last several years for our nature table (which is really a small bookshelf). You can read about our winter, spring, and summer nature tables in previous posts.
For each season, I purchased a gnome house from Green Mountain Wee Woolies.
I have a jar of gems for each season also. I bought them on Etsy, but the store I used has since closed. I just search for cheap seasonally colored gems.
Our mountain stacker comes from another Etsy store, Imagination Kids.
I set out our days of the week gnomes, which are colored according to traditional Waldorf colors. I no longer use our seasonal gnomes, as Sola has her seasons pretty well memorized, but you can see how I made our autumn, winter, spring, and summer gnomes that we used in devious years. Our weather gnomes were bought from Wild Faerie Caps.
As always, I set out several Waldorf seasonal postcards.
Finally, we put out some Ostheimer animal figurines and our seasonal trees, bushes, and mushrooms from The Enchanted Cupboard. We will add more elements from nature as we collect them on our nature walks.
