Friendsgiving – DIY table setting

Before the last leaves falling down, I wanted to preserve something about them. I’m not a big fan of this late autumn, but let’s make a pleasure about it.

This post is about a DIY idea for the table and also a recipe.

I collected a lot of nice and good looking leaves from the garden, and made an autumn inspired collection of textile napkins.


What do you need for that?

  • textile material – type and color is your decision, I used a grey, cotton one
  • collected leaves
  • textile paint
  • brush



Choose the material and cut two 20×26 cm piece of that, if you buy some simple textile napkin – that is perfect also.


Paint your favorite leaf on the back. Just put on a small layer with a color you picked. I used a simple black one for my grey napkins to make it a little elegant, and variable. Repeat it as many as you like.


Let them dry then iron them on the back side to fix the paint and like this you don’t have to worry about washing them in a washing machine.


Your ready, let’s start cooking!:)


SpagettiΒ  with a tuna salsa – in a way I love

(I won’t write measurements – ask me in the comment if you would like to know, but most of the time I make it just how it’s feel. Important that you need to taste step by step and change the ingrediance the way you like.)

For the sauce:

  • canned, chopped tuna in olive oil 2X
  • canned tomato souce
  • water
  • salt, pepper, rosemary, oregano, basil
  • onion
  • garlic
  • carrot
  • coconut oil


Cut the half of the onion in small pieces and sear in a pen with a little bit of coconut oil. After a couple of minutes add the garlic (small pieces) and the two can of tuna and the chopped carrot. Mix with the spices and after searing a minute – stream with the tomato sauce. Wait until it’s boiling and stop cooking. If you feel that is not enough spicy add some more. If the tomato souce/salsa is not fluid enough add some water or some cream to the mixture. I always use some non – diary version like nut or rise “milk”.

With a bowl of pasta this could be a fine, cosy dinner.

Bon appetit!

I hope you don’t mind this freelancer kind of recipe, like this way it’s just more enjoyable and more fun to make a food.
