March Birthdays

Between hubby's family and mine, we have a slew of family birthdays in March.  I put together a pizza party to celebrate.  I set the table and was all ready... 

I made place cards for everyone....

Washed the glassware....

Even put out the fancy lights.....
Galvanize chargers from Home Goods
Paired with antique pewter plates from an estate sale

...and we ended up in the kitchen eating pizza around the island!  

It was great fun and an easy clean up.  If you make homemade pizza and have never used a pizza steel, I highly recommend you go buy one immediately!

Green and Natural

This year's inspiration was the placemats from Hester and Cook.  I wanted everything to be simple, using only natural greenery.

As usualy hubby provided all the greenery.  It had to be replaced several times. 
Both geese were purchased on our most recent girl's trip to Atlanta.  

Wishing you and your's a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Giving Thanks

I have decided that fall is my favorite season and I am thankful for it.  I love the colors of fall, the temperatures, the everything!  

The pheasants were a gift from my MIL years ago and I have loved and used them almost every year. Thank you Eileen.   

The place mats are from Hester and Cook.  Every spring they have a warehouse sale and the bargains are amazing and I am soooo thankful for that! 

I was too lazy to put all the pumpkins from my Oct table away, so I just moved them to the drop leaf. 

Pier 1 crackle glasses bought with a coupon, on sale, and my birthday discount!  Thankful again. 
Napkins from Dillards.    
Pee Gee Hydrangeas.  They are beautiful in late summer, but in the fall is when the color really turns lovely. Thankful to hubby for planting my tree. 

I wish all of you a peaceful and loving Thanksgiving.  We are on our annual girl's antiquing trip to Atlanta. Thankful for a group of friends that all love the same thing!  This year we didn't even make it out of Tennessee before we spent over $100 at the Lodge cast iron outlet store!  I am linking up with Susan's Tablescape Thursday

Hello Pumpkin!

Even though it is still 90 degrees outside, I decided to go with the calendar instead of the weather and do Fall!  A quick trip to the Farmer's Market yielded just what I needed.  
The basket is from an estate sale.

 I love the subtle colors of the pumpkins. 


The Hester and Cook placemats were a birthday gift from a dear friend last year.  I wanted them to show so I used clear glass dishes. The flatware is Better Homes and Gardens from Walmart.  The pumpkins are hand-me-downs from my MIL.  
Estate sale candlesticks and squirrels from Ross.  Oak leaves from our back yard. 

Napkin rings from Pier 1.  Love their buy one get one 50% off sale on napkins, placemats and napkin rings. 

I need to find some acorns for the squirrels. 

Sure hope it cools off soon.  I have had enough summer for this year and I am ready to move on!
