A Garden Inspired Place Setting

This week, I’m sharing how I created these sweet, personalized place settings for the Thanksgiving table. It all started with a trip to a local flea market with my dear friend, Deb at Dandelion House. I discovered a set of these amber glass dessert dishes. I was smitten and scored the entire set of 12 for only $20! I added some succulents, moss, a white gourd, and designed this adorable chalkboard squirrel; just perfect for a name.

A Giving Tree

 

This week, I am sharing a Giving Tree that I created for HGTV Gardens. The Giving Tree can be placed practically anywhere in your home. The tree starts out empty of leaves. Over time, family and visitors can add leaves to the tree by adding messages of thanks and giving to paper leaves and then hanging them on the tree. We are starting a new tradition in our house by adding this tree to our Thanksgiving table. I am looking forward to seeing what my guest, family and children write on the leaves. I’m also going to save the leaves from year to year. It will be a wonderful way to reflect on special memories made around the table.

Nautical Pumpkins

I love living on the coast near the beach. I also love all things nautical in home decor.
Earlier this week I was wondering how I could make a nautical fall tablescape. Then it dawned on me, I bet pumpkins would look lovely wrapped in assorted marine rope. The kids and I got to work on this no-carve pumpkin decorating idea.

Front Porch: House Number Flower Pumpkins

 

Happy October friends! This week I’m sharing some fall porch decorating ideas. Fall  is one of my favorite times of year. I admit that I am a gourd hoarder, pumpkin collector and lover of all things that this season brings. I just find their beauty so hard to resist! The first place to be decorated at our home is the front porch. I had so much fun making these house number flower pumpkins.
