The Kiddie Table is Set

The Kiddie Table is Set

I have so much fun putting together the kiddie tables for each holiday. I'm usually a natural neutral person but love to use color and whimsy for our little guests. This Easter three of our little friends won't be able to join us so we are left with only four. They always enjoy seeing what theme and surprises await them in their own little space. I used a lot of mixed pastels and a bunny theme this year. The place cards are made from felt and were super easy to make. {I posted the tutorial yesterday ~ You can find it here} The plates Continue reading

Super Easy Easter Place Cards For The Kiddies {Egg Holders}

Super Easy Easter Place Cards For The Kiddies {Egg Holders}

It was such a gorgeous day today that I had to ditch the tablescapes and play with my little guy outside. We had fun and there is always tomorrow. I did manage to start on the kiddie table and came up with these cute place cards for our little guests. These are incredibly easy and festive, plus I think the kiddies will get a kick out of them! I started by drawling a rough template by hand. I made the base 1 1/4 inches tall and 6 1/2 inches long to ensure it would hold and go around a plastic egg. To get the ears semi-even I folded the Continue reading

Bird Nest Napkin Folding ~ Easter Table Setting

How does Easter always seem to sneak up on me? I just realized we have a little over a week left to prepare for the festivities. Since I'll be hosting dinner this year I thought I would start to put together my table. I'll share what I have come up with so far, as I still need to think about the centerpieces and other elements. I purchased a couple sets of brown napkins from Target awhile back at an incredible price of $2 {and some change} for a pack of four. Granted they are not absolute perfect squares {as you will be able to see below Continue reading

The Table is Set…

The Table is Set…

Time to gather, count blessings and enjoy this magical world that surrounds us. In keeping with the feel of the dining room I dressed the table in shades of silver and white adorned with touches of fresh green pine... ...and a little sparkle here and there. I love the detailing on the cups and saucers. They are 'Empress' by American Atelier in Grey Ironstone. The white linen napkins are folded diagonal pocket style with a sprig of fresh pine twisted with glass beaded garland. The chargers are sliver and the Continue reading

Ready for a Great Gathering ~ Our Dining Room

Ready for a Great Gathering ~ Our Dining Room

It's hard to believe we have been in our house for almost one whole year! We actually went to settlement one day before Thanksgiving last year. Though we did not have a fancy setting at the time we did have the things that mattered the most and so, so much to be thankful for. Here is picture of our dining room taken prior to moving in. The furniture was the previous owners and removed one we settled, leaving a nice empty room. Since the kitchen was a disaster without a working oven at the time, 'hubby' deep fried a turkey outdoors and my Continue reading
