Although it’s still weeks away, I’m sharing the Thanksgiving brunch table I plan to set for late morning on the holiday.
Early because, it’s the final day of this year’s Thanksgiving Tablescape Hop. All week long, nearly two dozen stylists have been posting a bounty of ideas for serving up feasts large and small.
Dinner here won’t be served until about six; to allow for family driving in on Thanksgiving day from Philly, D.C., and Cincinnati. Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate everyone at the Buzz Inn; so most will be staying at a nearby hotel.
However, our sons, mom, and Sistah B and her hubby will all bunk-in here. It will be all hands on deck to prepare the feast for about twenty. Gotta feed the worker bees first though! Especially since I’ll be putting everyone to work, while the rest of the family is enroute.
My Thanksgiving brunch table is set for just four, with another three place settings and buffet on the adjacent kitchen island.
Feeling a bit nostalgic, I’ve set a vintage Easter table in the formal dining room. I’ve incorporated tableware and linens passed down from both sides of my husband’s and my families, along with a recent find of soft pink, hobnail goblets.
A chocolate rabbit centerpiece, eggs and guest favors are a nod to my grandmother, who made and sold homemade Easter treats.
I’m so glad Easter is late this year! Not only does that provide a little space between other holidays, it also improves the chance of better, more spring-like weather here in Pittsburgh.
It just doesn’t feel like Easter without forsythia, daffodils and tulips blooming.
It’s April 1st as I compose this post, and this morning we awoke to a light dusting of snow — argh! A bad April Fool’s joke?
Today’s post is part of the Easter Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate. All this week, my fellow table stylist are sharing their creations.
I’m finally getting around to sharing the Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme brunch, a My Favorite Things Party.
Sixteen ladies ate out on the covered porch and under the pergola on a gorgeous Saturday for Brunch with Debbie. The party began at 11:30 AM.
The girls arrived appropriately attired in a favorite black dress or ensemble. As the Queen of Theme, I was delighted for an occasion that called for wearing a tiara — the better to express my inner Holly Golightly!
After receiving favors of pearls, sunglasses and a hand-painted Holly Golightly flute, guests were directed to the champagne bar. And the bubbly kept being sipped until late in the afternoon.
Dahhhling, grab a glass and join us for the sparkling Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme brunch.
While my guys are all on a secret mission wrapping their presents, I thought I’d share this morning’s Christmas brunch, red barn tablescape.
Last week, I shared an Enchanting Woodland Tablescape for Christmas & Winter Holiday Meals. Today, I created a second Christmas tablescape using the same plate patterns, but different holiday placements, napkins, glasses and favors.
There is also a new centerpiece that gives the table an entirely different personality. I love mixing things up while setting the table for my family.
It’s fun to turn an otherwise normal meal into a special occasion with a festive tablescape.
A short post today, before we leave for church and enjoy our Christmas Eve and family traditions. (more…)
