Autumn in the Dining Room

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Hey y’all!  I’m very excited to be hosting the Fall Craft Link Par-tay tomorrow!  Over the weekend I added a few fun seasonal touches to the dining room.  And I made soup.  Because we all know soup and fall go hand in hand.

Last week, I brought home a bunch of gourds and pumpkins and scattered them across the table, then hung a few festive corn husk pom poms because don’t we all need more pom poms in our life?  Yes, thank you, we do.

I played around with a few vignettes on the table watching the 49ers win (yes!).  This one includes vibrant viburnum leaves from my yard in a vase full of white cannelloni beans (the stems are placed in water in a more narrow glass inside…) which also made me crave soup.

There is no such thing as too many white pumpkins in my book, this beauty is garnished with a few faux berries.

Dining Room Complete

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

My friends, I’ve been keeping a secret from you.  It took me over five years to finish my dining room, and when I say ‘finish’ I mean install a much needed countertop, a backsplash, and some hardware on the built in cabinets.  Truth be told, there was just a piece of plywood as a countertop sitting in this little nook for many years that I would cover up when company came.  Seasons passed, I procrastinated and procrastinated until just a few weeks ago.  The time had finally come to finish the job.

Here’s a peek of how it looks today.
