Tablescape Thursday

Thursday, August 20, 2015

I get a few emails from readers about how setting tables can give them anxiety. Will they impress their guests? Are they trying too hard? For one, don't worry about guests. No matter what the table looks like, they will be happy to be there! And keep it fun! Not every tablescape has to be decked out with runners, votives, placemats and table cloths! You can find and create beautiful tablescapes using very few items (say you're like me and don't have quite the collection yet). My only suggestion is to always use some sort of plant or produce (pumpkins for fall, cranberries for winter, etc) and two to three different colors so it isn't boring. Check out Jenny's from Everyday Occasions. She chose green, white and a pretty pewter with simple napkins and glasses and created this simple, elegant tablescape.
See? Easy and elegant! 

Summer Fun: Mom's Birthday

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

My Mom turned 38 (yes...38...cough...cough) on the 12th of August. My Auntie wanted to surprise her and not tell her that my sister Mary, the kids and my sleepy self would be there to. We all arrived around 2pm since Jack has school and she came shortly after. We figured she would arrive 5 hours late as usual, but alas, she was on time ;-)

 Mmmm, rootbeer floats :-)

 Jack wasn't the biggest fan ;-)

We love you, Mom. Happiest of birthdays to you. You deserve nothing but happiness and health in your life. "I love you more. Forever more."

Summer Primitive Decor

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

So my Auntie's house is pretty famous here. I would say a few times a month, I get an email asking where she bought what or when I can photograph her home again. Primitive decor is a style you either love or totally hate it. I happen to LOVE it and a lot of my readers do as well. So this is for you chica's. And I couldn't get the porch because three Golden Retrievers occupied it ;-)

My God in Heaven I love this dresser

And my favorite part...her front porch that they finished around last Fall.

Imagine having your coffee out here every morning!
