For Everything There Is A Season, Including Table Settings

I love dishes, cooking not so much, but I do love dishes. That’s why I change my table setting so often. Here’s a SUMMER look … long gone.

I love my birds almost as much as dishes. They reappear most of the year, hibernate during Christmas. Do birds hibernate? I know Florida bears don’t!

For Halloween, I no longer decorate with spiders or skeletons. Our goblins are grown, so I don’t feel the need. I used to buy real pumpkins and gourds, but I got over that when they got squishy on my wood table. Now, I’m lazy, or smart, maybe both. I simply go to my stash and pull out the miniature pumpkins. They’re so cute and easy. Five minutes, presto, change-o.


Once again, the birds are front and center and coordinate beautifully with the pumpkins and the fall plates. The hurricane lantern is my other go to item. In the summer picture, it was filled with wine corks. I have extra if anyone wants some (and the collection is growing). Now, the lantern is filled with little pumpkins. The candle automatically turns on at 6, off at 11. Don’t you just love technology! That’s about as techie as I get!


Thank you Mary for the birdies. She has white ones. Another friend has yellow.


These fall dishes are especially fun because they are square. Who knew square plates could hold so much food! Warning… bumpy placemats aren’t wineglass friendly. There have been a few spills.



Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere, even in the chandelier.

Sadly, Halloween is over. Time to move on. Really I just want to use another set of dishes:)

Who’s coming to dinner?

These dishes are Vietri. Who can afford Vietri, right? $44 a plate isn’t happening around our house. But when it’s your birthday, special requests happen. Not the $44 a plate part, but a birthday trip to NC. Did I mention there’s a Vietri outlet in Hillsboro, NC.

Is it crazy that I’m already wanting to decorate for Christmas. I’ll blame it on the stores.

Yes, it is crazy. Halloween and Christmas decorations are out at the same time. Guess Thanksgiving is going to be skipped this year. I do love the fall colors so fall it is, for now.
