More Things Blue and White

Dressing A Table

I went to the beach yesterday to cool off from the heatwave we’ve been experiencing.  It was a lovely day with 70 degree weather and a gentle breeze.  On the way home I stopped into the local thrift store in Lincoln City and found this lovely vase with a bird motif, the perfect container for green gladiolus which are currently in season.  They make quite a statement!

Also on the table you will see a set of candlesticks which look possibly Scandinavian in design and a large platter which were also “finds” along the way.  They are atop a paisley print table runner I made to compliment my Blue Italian Spode dinnerware. IMG_2951

Holiday Entertaining

Standard

A Celebration of Hearth and Home

I love the holidays, especially Thanksgiving.  There is nothing quite so satisfying as a house filled with the aroma of roasting turkey, the lively banter of family and friends and the carrying on of traditions.

My menu is strictly traditional with roasted turkey, dressing made with toasted pecans and pork sausage, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry chutney, fresh green peas and roasted beans.  When it comes to desserts, we are a bit less traditional opting for a creme brûlée with fresh raspberries.

Please, you’re welcome to come along and join the party!
