~Goodbye to Fall~

I can't believe it's time to say Goodbye to fall already. We enjoyed a few last S'mores and toasted marshmallows at our family campfires. Bring on the snow!
My newly painted kitchen was host to it's first dinner date for my parents not too long ago.
The centerpiece was a very simple couple of stems from an aging bush from the garden. It made for the perfect brown and pink palette I was using for this table setting.The silverware and napkin bundles were tied with lace, seam binding and a small chandelier prism. We enjoyed Cajun chicken pasta and Caramelized apples with vanilla bean ice cream for dessert.

This is the congratulatory dinner for my husband who just got a promotion at work. The kids & I made him a banner and I cooked up his favorite Mexican meal.

Sounds delicious! And aren't the best floral displays the ones we gather from our yards?
