Thankful Thanksgiving (T)


Thankful for Thanksgiving and getting together with family!

I've got a mix of colors going on here.  I was attracted to the shiny pumpkins at Home Goods this year and for the "thankful" one by Martha Stewart. The pink and blue challenged me!

I used this pink stemware to match with the pink pumpkin.  These were from Horchow called Harper (I can't find them anywhere).

You'll notice that the blue feathers go with the blue tablecloth that I found at Home Goods.  These are the Plymouth dinner and salad plates from Williams-Sonoma.

I chose this vase because it has the same glistening vibe that the pumpkins have.  It's actually a blend of silver and gold. 

I ordered these pink Luminara candles which I can use for various other tablescapes. The candlesticks/holders are from World Market.  The table runner is from Home Goods.

I chose these wreaths but intended for them to be  like candle rings.  I like the festive look with the glitter on the tips.

I had to intermingle my traditional fall colors of golds and warm earth tones with the pink and blue.  I didn't want to go out and buy more accessories so I used what I had.

I believe we will be able to serve with smaller dishes and pass them along or we'll serve buffet style from the kitchen.  There will actually only be 4 attending but I like to see the table set for more!

I am happy with the blend of colors.  I was pretty iffy that this would work but I think it's fine.

Thanks for viewing my Thankful Thanksgiving tablescape!

Fall Quickly Slipping Away!


I've emptied my planters of annuals.  It's always sad to have to do that but I'm already looking forward to next spring!  "To Plant A Garden Is to Believe In Tomorrow",  Audrey Hepburn.

This Japanese Maple literally glowed!

The fountain is turned off due to all the leaves falling.  Dan will winterize it soon. 

I've played around with my deck arrangement a few times.  
I see it every morning while having my coffee.  I like to fuss! 

Such a lovely glow! 
The new steps will get stained next year.

We planted this Norway Maple several years ago. 

I love the color it turns!

Burgundy Glow Ajuga, it's filling in nicely and I look forward to seeing it next spring!

Asters which I need to plant in the garden soon!

We have a lot of maples, oaks, beech and ash trees around us.
Lots of leaves everywhere!  
I will fill his basket with Christmas items soon! 

Thanks for your vist!
