Fall Dining



With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, I thought I would start getting the dining room ready for the fall feast. I've kept it pretty simple...


hanging a wheat wreath over the mirror...


setting out a mismatched collection of brass candlesticks...


and using pumpkins from our garden as the centerpiece of the table.

We haven't yet picked all of the dishes for the menu, but one thing is for sure... it will include fresh baked pumpkin pies, using pumpkins from the garden. I can't wait! A pie made from fresh pumpkin is such a wonderful, wonderful treat.

Trina! I love it...clean, classic, crisp, and gorgeous. The wheat wreath is my favorite!

I have wheat bundles on our sideboard.

And, I love the white candles grouped together....so, so classic!

You must have enough pumpkins for the whole community! :)

That is a great wreath, and love the burlap on the table. I am a burlap lover, and this is so wonderful seeing someone who shares my love for burlap! Wonderful ideas! Thank you!

Simple is always best. Especially when there are babies cooking in the oven! Oh joy! And Happy Thanksgiving!

Very Nice! I love the candlesticks. I saw a pair like some of yours with a twisted stick this past weekend. I should have bought them because I love the way they look arranged all together.
And homemade pumpkin pie is divine....you are so lucky to have so many pumpkins to provide such a wonderful treat.

Your Thanksgiving feast sounds like it will be fun and delicious. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. How can windows reflect your holiday decorations style as well? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.
