I love this time of year.  The weather in Dallas has been wonderful!  I was peeking back through images from Octobers past and found this warm tablescape that I created for Williams Sonoma two years ago when we did a Tablescaping event together.  I love purples and blues and pewters together for Fall!

Another night with a dinner safe at home means another tablescape for our family.  I adore the Field of Flowers pattern by Juliska.  We used the salad plate over their classic Berry and Thread dinner plate.  The Field of Flowers napkin was a fun compliment to this gorgeous botanical mix.  I layered these over our…

Setting the table for Taco Tuesday is festive family fun!  My children made the tissue paper flowers for a home school Cinco-de-Mayo art project so I used them as my inspiration for our color-story. (A few people have asked me for a tutorial so I’ll work on that!) The pink ikat tablecloth was made with…

We are having so much fun setting the table every night as we enjoy family meals.  Last night, we set a table using our favorite pink and green items from around the house and our party closet.  I’ve linked the exact tablecloth, chairs and hurricane lanterns (you won’t believe how great those prices are!) and…
