Hello everyone! Thanks so much for visiting and linking up to the party yesterday, I can’t wait to finish looking at all the links this weekend!

Today’s giveaway is brought to you by one of my favorite shops StudioPatró.

Studiopatró tea towels and aprons are handprinted one-by-one, using ecologically friendly water-based inks. They are simple, elegant, and many include a dash of whimsy such as the Devour tea towel (that I keep meaning to frame for my kitchen!)  studiopatro linens

Wrap up a bottle of bubbly or a book or a homemade treat with one of these tea towels to make it extra special. Today Studiopatró is giving away three $75 shop credits to their online store !

Autumn Table Setting + Link Party

October 1st, 2013

Greetings my friends and welcome to the Autumn Tablescape & Vignette par-tay! I was inspired to set a table in the traditional tones of orange, chocolate, and gold this year with a white backdrop to balance it all out. Our dining room is neutral and combines mixed wood tones which makes it easy to change the palette by season.

I’m crushing on these geometric candlesticks – they’re simple yet striking and so affordable, I couldn’t resist adding them to my collection, one set on each side of the table. I think tortoise shell glass is hawt, I’ve had that hurricane vase for over ten years (can’t recall where I bought it) it but the small tumblers turned votive candleholders are from Pier One.

I found these sweet little soup bowls at HomeGoods with a delicate maple motif on the outside and pinecone on the inside. The global inspired patterned napkins are from Pier One, and the table runner fabric is my Sprig pattern in an autumn colorway. (This pattern and others will be available in a few Christmas colors in Nov and everyday colors in January!) The white square plate and gold square charger are from last year’s silver and gold tablescape. The wood handled Sawyer flatware is from World Market.
