Fall Celebrations



My dad's birthday is in the fall. It was a good time to set a seasonal table. To think about Fall Tablescaping and Decorating. To have a family dinner with the new kitchen as the star.




To buy a seasonal tablecloth.




To bake a decadent cake. This one had raspberry filling, 4 layers, buttercream icing with chocolate ganache drizzled over it. Yum.




To gather family in the dining room.




To enjoy some seasonal color,




play around with table decor.




Oh, boy. Did I have fun with the faux berries....




....and the Fiestaware.....




...and the faux berries and Fiestaware!

Have a beautiful Monday, and make sure to visit Cielo for Show off Your Cottage Monday!

I think a beautiful tablescape says to your guests that they are treasured and worthy of a lovely setting at the table. I'm sure that your guests felt loved.
