Thanksgiving With a Touch of Blue

I took advantage of  warm temperatures to set a table for two~ with a little color inspiration from a pair plates I found at HomeGoods. Blue married with shades of rust and brown seemed like an unlikely Thanksgiving color combination but Mother Nature, seemed to give her stamp of approval with the water reflecting the blue sky, along with the…

Autumn’s Delight

I’m delighting in Autumn~ My favorite season! A season for harvesting, layering, and enjoying the fall foliage~  I gathered some fruit, mini pumpkins and leaves, and layered my quilted coverlet with a warm, wool plaid throw to enjoy some Autumn’s Delight at the table. This centerpiece is one you can pull together in 5 minutes…

Thanksgiving Lakeside

 I set a table lakeside for Thanksgiving taking advantage of the last of the Fall color and warm temperatures. . . I soaked some oasis & filled a pumpkin for a centerpiece again this week using roses, sunflowers, daisies, and Hypericum berries from the market along with leaves & clippings from our shrubs. A visit to the produce section for…
