Blue and White Fall Tablescape

I thought we would go down memory lane today.

To revisit my Blue and White Fall Tablescape with orange accents.

I began creating the elongated centerpiece by using a faux magnolia garland.

It is always great to have some greenery to anchor a centerpiece

to use as a base to create that long narrow look we all have grown to love.

Using a garland is a great way to start.

A Southern Christmas Mantel of Magnolia Leaves

Love Magnolia leaves to decorate the house  for  Christmas, as it is so very Southern.

My Southern Christmas mantel of Magnolia leaves

was the first thing on the agenda for creating my Christmas decor this year.

It seems like styling the mantel is always the first thing that I do,

setting the tone for the room’s decor.

I really kept it very simple this year. Truly, I did. I even surprised myself!

Setting a Post Thanksgiving Table

Setting a Post Thanksgiving table is usually what I do

when we return from our trip to be with our very large family

and extended family for Thanksgiving.

I love to cook our own turkey so we can have a small family celebration

with leftover turkey  to share.

Although it is so beyond wonderful to celebrate our blessings with my entire family

of siblings, nieces and nephews, their spouses, and my mom ….

I am also very THANKFUL TO bHOME.
