I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and friends. We had 25 people which included three dogs and five children. We had a beautiful day so we were able to set up a children's table and a parents table outside. The children were delightful and the dogs well behaved. Here are the two tables that I set up inside. This year I picked a lighter autumnal scheme for my dining room table and loved the outcome. I wouldn't shy away from using a similar "outside the box" scheme for Christmas be creative!
My long box (crafted from old fenceboards by our friend Steve) is filled with eucalyptus, vibernum berries, coffee berries, hydrangea, gold mums, apples, orange beets, lavendar, alstromeria and various greens from my yard.
The chargers are from Pier 1 several years ago. The blue napkins are from Pottery Barn many years ago.
The napkins are tied with double faced satin ribbon with a simple nametag, coffee berries and a fall leaf. The plates are from Anthropologie here.
In our almost completed Great Room (more on that later) I set a small table for four. The plates are from Pier 1 here.
The seagrass chargers are from Pottery Barn here
You can find on OKL here. The vase is from Wisteria in Soquel. It is filled with sunglowers, autumn leaves, delphinium, and pomegranetes and pyracantha berries from my yard.
and on someone over 60 with a "less than perfect" body.
I wore it paired with an ancient Michael Kors Motorcycle Jacket, leggings, and my comfortable Earth booties.
and this fabulous felted wool Marissa scarf from Artful Home.
I am absolutely crazy about this scarf. Artful Home has a scarf and wrap boutique running now until the end of December. All scarves and wraps are artist made so you won't see a hundred people walking around wearing your the same scarf. You can check it out here.
I hope you weren't bored to tears by the length of this post. I just wrapped up decorating the Pour House. More on that in an upcoming post.
