I have a real hard time getting rid of all the pumpkins and gourds I so carefully chose for their color and texture back in September, but now that we’ve moved into a new season their time is past. At least that’s true for most of them.
I couldn’t resist using some of the white pumpkins one more time. Roses were on special at the grocery and the red ones seemed a good way to introduce a little holiday spirit. Once the pumpkins and roses were on the table the rest took care of itself.
White dishes are always good because they are a great background for most any food. My love of color prohibits everything being white so these very fun salad plates add pattern and color.
If you are ever looking for those touches that add a little extra pizazz, you can always count on Anthropologie as a great resource.
This table is round meaning that rectangular placemats don’t fit quite right so turning them lengthwise is an easy solution.
At first clear stems were on the table, but the colors in the small plates kept jumping out at me, and I remembered the blue stems I’m holding for my daughter until she is ready for them. Since they are here, they might as well be used!
I can’t say the Christmas bug has bitten me yet, but maybe the touches of holiday red will help it kick in.
i so enjoy your visit and the comments you leave behind
