Thanksgiving is my favorite time to set the table with my collection of Booths Real Old Willow by Royal Daulton. I set up a coffee service on the sideboard in the dining room early this year. It was a time saver with family coming the weekend before Thanksgiving. This year I added natural materials from the yard, and a Fairytale pumpkin hollowed out for the centerpiece. The pumpkin is a pale shade of pink, so I added pink roses for a different look and I loved it! I decided to leave the table set to enjoy throughout the weekend.
For the centerpiece I started with a moss covered runner down the center of the table. Gathering natural materials from my yard and using tiny salt and pepper animals creates a natural and elegant look.
Scooping out the pumpkin and adding the roses, then placing the pumpkin lid back for a natural and finished look.
In the kitchen on The French Hutch, dried flowers in a mug of favorite well wishes.

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone it’s time to think of Christmas decorating. I had a little project in mind for some fun with Connor! What little boy could resist spraying snow out of a can onto Bama’s windows!
