THANKSGIVING TABLE THOUGHTS

I'm re-posting one of our Thanksgiving tables from 2012.  We host about 30 people for Thanksgiving dinner, so I have a lot of tables to post!

Pewter turkey napkin holders were used to secure the plaid napkins.

HALLOWEEN ON THE PIANO

I’m sharing a little Halloween on our piano.  The black cats, ghosts, and witches have taken over!

HALLOWEEN PARTY

Halloween Table

I’m hosting a club meeting at my house tomorrow night, but I’m not sure anyone will dare eat anything. You'll soon see why.

Edgar Allan Poe has taken over our mantel for Halloween.  “Nevermore quoth the raven.”

ELEGANT PUMPKIN TABLESCAPE

Fall Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
Can a tablescape featuring pumpkins be used for an elegant dinner?  This pumpkin table was for a dinner I served last year, and I'm posting it again today.  Although, gold is normally my go-to color for Fall, when I got a couple of mercury glass pumpkins on sale, it made me think outside the box about this table.

A LITTLE MORE FALL DECOR

Fall Decor 4

As I said on Facebook the other day, I hope there is a strong (and good-looking) fireman down there, waiting to catch me, because I’m still Falling at my house.

Fall Decor 5

I’ve added Fall colors to the shelf above the range alcove in our kitchen.

HALLOWEEN PARTY


Halloween Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

This Halloween party was posted last year, and  I am re-sharing it today.  It was a fun party, and I thought it would be a fun re-share.  I hope you agree.

MORE FALL VIGNETTES

FALL VIGNETTES-Laurie

Fall is coming to the sunroom at our house.

FALL VIGNETTES 1

In the plate rack, I’ve used leaf place mats behind an Autumn banner and dinner plates with Fall colors (Ridgways-England, Apple Blossom).  Those plates are the purchase that kept on building. I bought a large set of these at a charity sale one time.  Through the years, the lady who had donated them kept giving me more pieces as she found them around her house!

FALL DECORATING

Fall decor
There was a little nip in the air this weekend in Arkansas.  It inspired me to get out my pretty velvet pumpkins, which were made by my friend, Susie.

FRIDAY FAVES-ANOTHER FALL EDITION

fall mantel http://countrydesignstyle.com
Instead of commentary about these beautiful Fall inspiration photos, I’m going to do a little chatting with you today. I hope you’ll indulge me while I work through this “out loud”.  Some of you, my dear readers, may have noticed that my heart hasn’t been in my blog lately.  I’m questioning myself a lot these days.

"FALL-ING" SLOWLY

Fall Transtion Mantel

I previously showed you my Fall mantel, decorated with cotton bolls.  With all of the Fall colors turning up in Blogville, I started wanting to have some at my house.  If you’ve visited my blog for awhile, you’ve seen this Fall Welcome banner, which I have had for years and years and…  I still enjoy getting it out in the Fall.

FRIDAY FAVES-FALL DÉCOR EDITION

Fall Home Tour {Virtual} and a GIVEAWAY

OUR SOUTHERN HOME

Have you started thinking about Fall décor (or maybe you’ve already started decorating for Fall).  I’ve been collecting ideas, and my faves today are some of those ideas.  I love the breadbox filled with Fallness on this table on the porch.  OK, that is one giant piece of driftwood!

FALL TABLESCAPE REVIEW

full tbl2

2012

Today, I am looking back at some of my past Fall tablescapes.  This Fall picnic was posted in 2012.  At that time, the name of this blog was Bargain Hunting & Chatting with Laurie (and obviously, I wanted everyone to know it, since my watermark on this photo is huge!).  One day, I realized that I wasn’t sharing much about hunting for bargains, so I changed the name of the blog.  (Sometimes I’m a little impulsive.)

A FALL MANTEL IN COTTON COUNTRY

Fall Mantel

In my neck o’ the woods, Fall means cotton blooms and then cotton bolls growing in the fields; cotton harvesting and cotton ginning.  So, my first Fall mantel this year is all about cotton.

THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPES-THE END!

Thanksgiving Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

I previously shared our Thanksgiving table for 10 and our Thanksgiving table for 8.  I seat approximately 30 people for Thanksgiving dinner, so I have a few more tables to share.
