Tablescape Tuesday: Thanksgiving Round Up!

Where has this month gone??? I've been so busy at work, I've barely had the time to notice that November is coming to an end and that Christmas bells will be ringing soon! BUT, before we turn our attention to Christmas, let's take a moment and soak up the beauty of autumn one last time. Here are a few of my favorite fall tablescapes, so if you haven't planned yours for Thanksgiving, hopefully these will inspire you!

Tablescape Tuesday: Fall Place Setting

With Thanksgiving almost two weeks away, its time to start thinking about setting your holiday table! As I have said a million times before, Fall is my absolute favorite season. One of the reasons I love Fall so much is because of the vibrant colors that adorn nature during this time of year.  So take a cue from the outdoors this Thanksgiving and dress your table with color. I'm currently loving this place setting from Anthropologie...

I think that having a classic set of white dinner plates is key for your party pantry. You can always change up your place settings with salad/dessert plates to match the season or theme of your next gathering. How are you setting your Thanksgiving table this year??

A Baptism Luncheon

Back in September when our sweet baby boy was baptized, the hubs and I hosted a luncheon in our home following the service. Since this was a very special occasion, I decided to use all my fine china and silver....and some of my moms too! I love having an excuse to get a little bit fancy since so often when entertaining we go the casual, relaxed route. Here are a few shots my friend and very talented photographer Kamin took for us to remember this important day!














This last image is one of my favorite pics.... looks like the little guy was a bit bored by all the hoopla! I'm sure when he gets older I will hear about how terrible it was that I put him in such a frilly gown and cap. I'm Southern...that's just what we do...sorry buddy!
