Celebrating Holiday Blooms!

Well this Amaryllis is a bit early but I'm enjoying watching it bloom every day!

 This is Amaryllis Alfresco which I ordered on-line.  Why I picked it out was because of the soft green towards the center.  It's a very delicate flower too which I'm grateful to be witnessing!

 Though there are more blooms coming on each stalk I thought I'd capture them today.
I do have to rotate every couple of days since they start leaning towards the window.

 I always have to laugh at myself each year that I plant them because unlike the images shown by the retailers they rarely are the same height and or bloom together evenly.
But still... I love them!


 Down near the pot you can see others that are starting.  Some are side shoots of the Amaryllis that are already blooming.  There are two that are growing super slowly that are called Elvas.  They will also be white with a delicate red accent.  I might order some more so I can have some blooming around Valentine's Day!

Are you growing anything this season?

Welcoming The Season Luncheon!

I wanted to start December off with a luncheon tablescape.  Welcoming in the holiday and the beauty of the season!

The tablecloth is new (from Home Goods).  The spiral red glassware was from Younker's many years ago.

 The napkin rings are from Pier 1 this year.  I grabbed up a bunch when I spotted them.

The felt cutout placemats are new from Home Goods also.

 I'm all about Nutcrackers this year and included a couple on my table.

 The pitcher matches the dish pattern (by 222 Fifth called Winter Harmony).  I fell in love with it!

 The fresh cut flowers are from Costco.  They had everything I wanted in the bouquet so it was a win win!

 This will be even prettier when the lilies open!

 My amaryllis have started blooming.

This one's called Alfresco
It's very dark today and I pushed the light as best as I could.  These are much prettier in person!



Welcoming The Season Luncheon!

I've got my trees up and my mantel is decorated.  I'll share that soon!

Thanksgiving Decor 2019



I'll start in the kitchen dining area at the credenza.  I put down a runner runner that has pumpkins on each end.  

 I used this white pitcher with pumpkins on it and added the dark grass to it to tone down the look a bit and to pick up on some of the darker brown colors seen throughout. 

 Same farmhouse pumpkin decor.  I've gotten a lot of mileage out of that!

 I brought out my white turkey with sponge brown accents.  I liked how the white in the turkey picked up on the white in the pitcher.  The candle holder was a find at Hobby Lobby and I felt it unified everything.  The turkey dish is part of a 4 pc. set I think from Williams Sonoma.


Now onto the living room fireplace mantel...
 I brought in my MacKenzie Childs turkey and a pair of pheasants.

 This is how it looked during the fall and Halloween season. I took away a couple of pumpkins and rearranged the others.

 The pheasants were acquired from Pier 1 several years ago.  I like making it look like they are foraging.

 After I showed you my Fall mantel I got this owl.  It was centered under the picture but I decided to move it off to the right and raise it on a candlestick as though it was perching from a tree.

 The turkey is set lower as though it were on the ground.



I took some evening photos too...




Wishing You a Happy Thanksgiving!
