Thanksgiving Wine Bar & Dining Table

I was clearing off all the Halloween deco and while figuring out what I was going to do it suddenly struck me to make a wine bar.  Our kids are coming this weekend and they appreciate wine so I decided to expand on that idea.

Down below in this cabinet is a wine rack so I just selected some and brought them up above.  I staged some wine glasses, cork screw, wine coaster, candles and a turkey!

My white roses from my last tablescape are still holding on. 

They've held up beautifully!

I placed wreath above the sconces which was a first for me.  I like how this looks!

I had a little Thankful sign I added too!  We're having our Thanksgiving early since the kids are visiting.
I brought in the lanterns from my Fall and Halloween  display outdoors.

I placed a small turkey on the candlestick.

Over by the front door I created a couple of vignettes.  I've had this MacKenzie Childs turkey for several years and decided to incorporate it into this setting.

This is a maintenance free dog!

I decided to add fall deco to this chest of drawers and keep the blue pieces in place.

I snuck in a small Pilgrim turkey!

I had bought this to go on a wreath but this year I decided I would add it to this mirror and I like it!

A small vignette on the dining table.  I continued my usage of the sunflowers and pumpkins but added my pheasants and Pilgrims.

I'm a traditionalist and love to celebrate the seasons as they come!  I hope you enjoyed my Thanksgiving presentation!

Elegant Black & White Halloween


Welcome to my Elegant Black & White Halloween.  We adults can have fun too!

I've layered some black and white dishes with wild animal prints to jazz it up a bit!  Elements of silver and gold appear too. 

I added a gold leaf to place the wine glass on... 

 Daylight gently streams along the table though it won't be long before darkness takes over...

My center arrangement started with this sequened placemat I found at Home Goods.  I've had the spider web placemats for some years.
Two dozen white roses add a touch of elgance to the centerpiece.

A little elegant boo from MacKenzie Childs, my splurge for the season.

The black and white votive is also a MacKenzie Childs piece from several years back.  Notice it's outlined with gold and so are the wine glasses and napkin rings.

A chopped salad will be served and then a pot pie followed by sweet cherry cobbler with ice cream!

Ahh now the tone is set!
Thanks for joining me for my Elegant Black & White Halloween!

Ready For Halloween

Welcome to my Halloween village... 
We're Ready For Halloween!
These guys are here to greet you!

The kid in me still likes to do something for Halloween even though my kids are all grown up!

 A haunted house (by Lenox)!  

I've had these guys with the ultra skinny legs and arms for years and always enjoy bringing them out!

A spooky tree complete with scarecrows, a pumpkin and a color changing spooky face!

This couple are enjoying a sit down by the lamp post!

Several of these figurines are by Bethany Lowe which I adore.

I picked up a black tree from Hallmark and some of their ornaments as well as some from Michael's.
Spooky, haunted and cute!

This is Ella who is presiding over the village!

Fall Views From My Backyard


It only lasts a little while but I'm enjoying every minute!  We had our first hard frost last night so things will be changing rapidly.  
I have to admit I'm anxious for 2020 to be over with. I'm already excited about Christmas in part because I want to see this year come to an end and then I'll be that much closer to next spring!
I sit at the kitchen table watching this every morning.  The sun illuminates the trees so beautifully!  Loving the contrast of the green shrubs with the color.

A little frost damage...

There's a lot of maples around us so we get a good variety of color!

 Loving these colors!

I added a little more to this setting including a new lantern (Kirklands)
I found the candle holder at Hobby Lobby and put a pumpkin on top.  I made the bow using a Bowdabra bow maker which was very handy!

All ready for Halloween!
