At the Haven Conference you get to see and meet so many wonderful people,
wonderful bloggers who over the years have become great friends.
For some time I wanted to have some fellow local bloggers over
and there was some discussion of this during the conference.
Then a sweet, talented blogger moved to our area.
So, how do you welcome her? Have a gathering.
We finally came up with a date to get together.
It was a beautiful Fall day.
Table set with flowers of Fall colors.
A little parting gift of local soaps of Fall and Winter scents at each place setting.
So what are the soaps tied together with?
The wired portion of a wired ribbon.
The place setting of Noritake Summer Estate.
Placemats and napkins by William-Sonoma.
The placemats were rather large so I turned them lengthwise
and was a bit of a nice departure from the typical layout.
The centerpiece is a divided metal crate from Pottery Barn
with violet colored mason jars serving as containers for the flowers.
The mason jars were a beautiful gift from my friend Mary
who is famous for her magnificent tablescapes, not to mention her potting shed.
As you can see it was a beautiful day.
I took these photos as the sun was rising and shining through the trees.
So guess who came for Brunch!
We were welcoming Christy of 11 Magnolia Lane
who recently relocated here from Savannah, Georgia.
I am sure you will recognized many of the lovely ladies here.
Starting from the left of the table and going around clockwise are:
Richella of Imparting Grace
Lauren of The Endearing Home
Kristen of Sophia’s Decor (watch for her newly revamped blog coming soon)
Brittany of Pretty Handy Girl
I was so happy that Brittany was able to join us soon after having major surgery.
Susan of This Makes That
And last but not least, our guest of honor, Christy of 11 Magnolia Lane
Truly a wonderful day with beautiful people.
Here is a selfie that I took…..it is obvious that I will not receive
the selfie taking award. I totally cut off part of Brittany, who is truly the “pretty”
of Pretty Handy Girl.
Have a most beautiful day. The leaves here are quickly turning
into the glorious brilliant Fall colors. Love this time of year!!
I am joining:
