Hello Dear Readers!
Welcome to another great Monday Morning Blooms!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Today, I, along with my flower passionate friends,
Lidy, Pam, and Mary, are presenting inspiration
for your home and gardens with beautiful flowers.
The links to their posts are at the
bottom of this post below their beautiful images.
I am a bit “out of the box” today… presenting
A Fall Tablescape Using Blue, White and Green.
When browsing the sale on the Williams Sonoma website,
I found the Schumacher salad plates that I have been
longing for and …. they were on sale!
It is truly the pattern and the colors that I’m always drawn to.
I know that if my mom sat at this
she would be very pleased.
Thanksgiving for many, many of us
will be different this year;
however, I know we will all look
forward to the next one and spending
time with our family and extended family.
The color combination of blue, white and green
is probably one of my very favorites.
So happy that I obtained these pretties on sale!
The fabulous monogrammed napkins are from
The Collected Nest. You can find Amy’s
lovelies on Instagram.
I actually took lots of photographs of this table
before I realized, why not crank up the fireplace.
So I did and started all over again.
Knowing the color scheme I was going
to use for this table today, I headed
to Trader Joe’s in search of flowers.
I found hydrangeas in the blue, white and green shades.
along with a beautiful shade of apple green mums
and added the graceful filler of Baby’s Breath.
The flowers were placed in 3 separate Dollar Store
vases that were placed in the blue and white container.
Note: I found this beautiful blue and white container
years ago at my fav shop, Always Home in Durham, N.C.
See that twinkling in the background?
Yes, that’s a Christmas tree that I
am going to be decorating and using
as a backdrop for the next Monday Morning Blooms.
See more details below.
Here’s a sneak peek of the undecorated tree.
So back to the table!
My dining room is off the foyer,
so as soon as you walk into my home,
you will be greeted by this Christmas Tree.
A blue and white egg cup holds a velvet acorn.
Place cards being thankful for
the family at the table.
I am thankful and blessed.
Thanksgiving was always my dad’s favorite holiday.
The holiday when all the family and extended family
gather to be thankful for one another and enjoy
dad’s favorite meal of the year. He is so much more
missed at this time as we know how much this day
meant to him……family.
From the Dining Room into the Foyer . . .

And it would not be our family’s Thanksgiving
tablescape without our “Graylyn’s Turkey!”
Before I send you off to see
the wonderfully talented ones of
Monday Morning Blooms, I want to
