4th of July



Happy 4th of July! 
Not table related, but by window boxes are suffering in this heat!
I'm trying sooooo hard to keep my flowers blooming.
(It isn't an easy task!)


Our community has a fun week of celebrating leading up to the 4th.
Hot air balloons for 2-3 days -- we love going out and seeing the sky filled with them.


This was our dinner table...slightly similar to the brunch table.


Happy 4th of July

4th Breakfast!




Red & white thrifted soda bottle --


This is our table setting for our 4th breakfast.


Chargers & nautical juice glasses from Pier One
Kate Spade plates
Star napkins Pottery Barn


I love the 4th of July, 
and our community knows how to celebrate!


Kate Spade diner themed plates are perfect for a breakfast.


(A photo from my Serendipity blog last year.)


Another photo from last year -- I love these dishes!

Spring Tables


One of our spring tables from last year.
{It is a little difficult to think about spring with snow outside.}


Our Palm Sunday centerpiece.
Hoping the weather warms up this week in time for Easter!

February Recap


We hosted a brunch for a school Sweetheart dance.
Crêpes and fruit salad.


We had our family Mardi Gras dinner with everyone that was home.
{We made our traditional king cake again this year, and it was delicious!}


The most fun was welcoming home our new puppy Missi on Valentine's Day.
She was the reason behind our impulse puppy plate purchase!
I think we'll use them to celebrate her each year! 
She was born on December 20th and is such a joy (and a lot of hard work)!

Family Sweetheart Dinner 2018


My cute teen folded the napkins this year -- alternating red and pink.



These fun 'love is in the air' plates are from Pier One.


The velvet candy boxes are from my favorite local antique stop.


I love old candy boxes...espeically with graphics.
{The box on the backside of the table has a victorian couple embossed on it.}

Prepping for Family Valentine's Dinner


Our family Valentine's Dinner from a few years back.
{We usually have this meal the Sunday before Valentine's Day. 
It just depends on what our couple/family plans are for the evening.}


Our 2017 Family Dinner.


I love this napkin fold for Valentine's Day. 
This was our table a couple of years ago.

Tables of 2017



Hoping to be better at documenting our pretty table in 2018.


Our 4th of July breakfast was a favorite -- but few photos to prove it.


Our Back-to-School dinner is always a favorite.


Lemons/Lemonade theme this year.


Oven chowder for Halloween and a table set with our favorite spooky dishes.
 (Halloween Moon by Williams Sonoma)

Not a single December holiday table to share --
There's a goal for 2018!
