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.
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.
Thanks for dropping in today. This week I’m sharing a wreath that I made for HGTV Gardens. I wanted to create a beautiful wreath that could transition from Halloween all the way through Thanksgiving. Having a versatile wreath like this helps to keep cost down and decorating dilemmas at bay.
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.
Fall is officially here! The air is crisp, the leaves are beginning to fall and pumpkins are becoming available in local pumpkin patches, grocery stores and even at craft stores. This week, I took inspiration from coastal living here on Cape Cod and crafted a unique beach chic pumpkin for HGTV Gardens.
