Creating a Pumpkin Vase Centerpiece for Thanksgiving

I always enjoy using pumpkins and gourds as a seasonal centerpiece for Thanksgiving. If there’s no room at the dining table with the Thanksgiving feast, it’s a pretty way to dress a sideboard, kitchen island, or foyer table. Like everyone else, I’ve been busy harvesting recipes and table ideas with Thanksgiving a few weeks away. To create a pumpkin vase centerpiece,…

Falling Back

It’s that time of year to fall back ~ with a few exceptions like Arizona, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, most of us in the US will be turning our clocks back this weekend. It’s also time when my internal clock falls to comfort food~ harvesting, gathering, and Thanksgiving! Click on the links if you’d like to fall…

Fall Around The Potting Shed

I’ve been busy harvesting  pumpkins, gourds, goldenrod, leaves and pots of mums for Fall Around The Potting Shed! A basket on the door is filled with goldenrod and oak leaves, still green, which don’t turn in North Carolina until the end of October. You’re welcome to peek inside at the chalkboard door with a favorite quote…

A Casual Fall Centerpiece

I enjoy putting a centerpiece for a table together, especially if it’s easy, casual, and includes a little of nature’s bounty! For my Pfaltzgraff Plymouth Dinnerware table, I gathered  pumpkins, leaves, apples, nuts, and mums. I started with a Better Homes and Gardens Wire Pumpkin Tealight Holder I harvested at Walmart a couple of weeks ago for $9.96! I built…

Autumn is a Second Spring

I’m Welcoming Fall in my Potting Shed! Autumn is my favorite season~ And like a second spring when every leaf is a flower, one of my favorite fall quotes by Albert Camus. I used my fall garland from the table, to bring a little touch of Autumn indoors to my ladder in my Potting Shed. To join…

Fall at the Table~ Plymouth Dinnerware

I’m Welcoming and Ushering in Fall~ At the table with   Plymouth Dinnerware by Pfaltzgraff.  Plymouth Dinnerware is a Cornucopia of all things Autumn~ Embossed with pumpkins, acorns, leaves and ears of corn. With abundance in mind, I gathered  pumpkins, leaves, apples, nuts, and mums for a harvest centerpiece. Hallmarks of the season, Pumpkins and Harvest Corn,…

A Little Bit of Fall

Fall is a week away, but it still feels like summer in North Carolina. While I’m ready to fling myself into fall, dress in layers and harvest pumpkins,  I’m easing my way in, until Mother Nature cooperates. Mums are readily available and help ease the transition~ I found tricolor pots of mums at Lowe’s, that…

Enhancing Fall Garland

Fall is my favorite time of year and I love harvesting leaves, acorns, and bits of organic material to bring nature to the table! My preference is to use real materials, but here in the South, our leaves don’t start to turn until mid October, so any fall decorating before then requires artificial garlands or wreaths.…

At the Table~ Falling Leaves

In anticipation of fall, I’m at the table with Falling Leaves Dinnerware by Pfaltzgraff. In North Carolina, we don’t see our leaves turn or feel the nip in the air until  the end of October. Fall is my favorite time of year and I’m anxiously awaiting both! Falling Leaves Dinnerware brings an organic feel to the table…
