Kent’s Birthday is always a fabulous occasion and then when it is over it signals the beginning of Fall, a time to slowly start changing my house theme over to one that embraces the smell of pumpkins and spice, a world of reach colour and glorious scents
For me, Fall starts with the table, it will be the first hint when you walk into my home… Take a glance into the dining room, check out my table and that will tell you if I have begun the seasonal transition. Then of course it slowly starts spreading through the house.
Tablecloths, Chargers, dishes, it all blends together to celebrate the season. For 2016 I am starting with the plaid tablecloth and decided to add my Nana’s silverware. Why keep this stuff packed away. memories are more than knowing you have something, its the actual using that brings the memories front and centre. Do you really think that they create the silverware to stay in a box, or for the china to stay in a cabinet? Now they were made to be used and admired and cherished. Cheroshed does not mean boxed away, it means use , love and care for.
Napkins are little roses that I discovered on pinterest, such a quick and easy DIY and one I sharing with you on video….. what…. I know how crazy of me. Be kind its my first real vlog post.
I found these beautiful leaf plates at The Christmas Shoppe in North Conway a few years ago and I adore them. The perfect accent. My wine bottle salt and pepper shakers ( I inherited my Nana’s love of S&P shakers) are a Cracker Barrel find, as are the owl and acorn later in the post. The Chalk board easels are of my own creation, inspirational wine quotes on each and of course wine bottle candle holders completing the theme.
Do you change your table? Are you a season embracer? I love changing my table regularly. Today I am embracing an eclectic collection of fall inspired plates.
