Fall Tour 2015 ~ Part 3

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! With the yummiest holiday of the year only a week from tomorrow, I thought it might be time to post some pictures of my Thanksgiving decorations. As you saw in Part 1, my fall d├ęcor starts with general fall items featuring pumpkins, leaves, earthy colors, and natural elements. In Part 2 I showed how I added Halloween accessories to some spaces. Now, for Thanksgiving, I have packed away the Halloween things and added a few Thanksgiving pieces here and there!

We’ll start the tour in the living room! I added a cute banner to the fireplace and a cute little turkey (he holds a candle!) to the mantel.


On the side table, I replaced my Halloween kitty and framed card with a “thankful” sign I made this year and two little pilgrims that my grandma made.


I also have a few turkeys here and there… Can you spot any in this picture?


Moving on to the kitchen, I have replaced my centerpiece with a beautiful table runner that my mother-in-law made for me (it has moved around this fall — did you notice it in my previous posts?!), a cornucopia that my grandma made and used to have on a table at her house, and my grandma’s candlesticks!


And lastly, I have a couple fun turkeys and a message on the fridge. My grandma made the plastic canvas turkey, and 5-year-old Jenna made the felt one. :-)


That’s all for my fall tour(s) this year! I hope you all have had a wonderful fall!

Summer Table Setting

Summer table 2013I bought a new table runner last week and was having a hard time deciding what to put with it… and then it came to me: the table runner is sort of retro looking, and I remembered I had someSummer table - flowers pressed glass from the 60s that belonged to my grandmother! I pulled out a vase and a votive holder from the set. Then I pulled out some yellow silk flowers that had also been grandma’s. I put them all together with some red placemats and my colorwave dishes – it was almost done! To finish it off, I picked up some yellow napkins and some red flower napkin rings. And it’s perfect! I’m looking forward to a summer of eating at this beautiful table!
