Happy Friday to you! I decided yesterday, to do an extra post for today..... because today just seemed like a good day to share something special. :) Oh & before I start , check out Jessica's Sweet November recipe! I made some last night, and I'm excited to try some Pumpkin Butter with sweet potato fries. Sounds good doesn't it?
Double Oh!! Thankyou for all of the comments on my autumn journal!
Alicia had asked:
'I meant to ask.... Is the photos and chapter words with the scrolls around them stamps? or part of the old book?'
- Those words, are from a sheet of rubons... but I can't remember who made them!! So sorry! If I find the packaging, I'll be sure to post the name!! Also, if you have questions, feel free to ask, and I'll answer them in the next post.
Now that the holidays are inching closer, I'm thinking ahead to the dinner parties that we'll be hosting over the next few months. While, I adore the concept of name-cards.. (Little cards with pretty scrolled names of your dinner guests, placed ever so neatly at each table setting. Just an extra touch to let your guests know they were thought about before their arrival.) my carefully thought out seating arrangements never go as planned. It's usually Alaina that takes it upon herself to reassign everyone, more to her own liking.... of course.
So, this year, I'm one step ahead of the game! Instead of creating name-cards, each table setting will have a little place card with an Autumn word. I've used some of the words from the Autumn Word List from yesterday's post, and created a set of Fall place cards. (I also fully intend to do this for our Christmas dinner parties as well!) Each person can choose their own seat and place-card.
Now that I'm thinking about it, wouldn't a set of placecards with the different tree names be pretty too!!: Cedar, Maple, Oak, Walnut, Cyprus..... just think of the many possibilities to create something lovely!!
Join Jessica and I tomorrow for a very Sweet November giveaway!!
