Oh, to think that Fall is really here!! I could not go without blogging for even one more day! I have no idea how often that I will post in the future, but it feels really good to be back.
Since my husband retired, we have been soooo busy! Before school started, again, we enjoyed several weeks entertaining grandchildren and we have been traveling often (more about those trips in another post). We still have not decided exactly what we are doing with the rest of our lives, but we are closer to a decision...
I have been entertaining some. Here is a photo of the table I set for my daughter's birthday. A good time was had by all!!
For today's table, I used a tablecloth that I purchased at the Lenox Warehouse Outlet in Cranbury, NJ - I, definitely, must do another post on that trip!! Wow, did I have a wonderful day and my sweet, patient husband allowed me to take all of the time I needed to shop. What a gift!
Lenox did not have the matching napkins, but I eventually found them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
Oh, I loved setting this table! Fall is my favorite season and seeing all of these beautiful colors together makes me smile all day!!
I used a rustic and refined theme for the place setting. Beautiful crystal and gold encrusted dinner plates with stoneware salad plates and rattan chargers. What fun to mix things up a bit!!
A simple centerpiece of apothecary jars filled with pumpkins and acorns and...
A garland of pine cones and fall leaves down the center of the table.
I hope that your Autumn is going well. I have missed all of you and I hope that I will now have the time to see and comment on all of your posts. You are my inspiration and have taught me so much! Thank you all for being part of my life!!
