As you know, I love pattern on pattern. It seems sometimes I even preach it, but it works. And I love layers. Stack the patterned plates, yet keep it easy on the eyes. My rule of thumb is if your eyes can’t rest, then it’s no good. Keep looking. Loud with quiet. Small plaid with bold pattern, keeping in mind that sometimes the unexpected is, like, heck yeah!
You know what I mean?
Sometimes, when I start thinking about a table setting, I pick out a set of plates that I haven’t used in a while, and see if they’ll pair with a seasonal print. And if I don’t have a seasonal printed plate? Well, I’ll make one.
Tired of spending a lot of money on charger plates? Here is an inexpensive & amazing way to create custom holiday charger plates from fabric!
There is no doubt that this year has been wicked whacky. I’m not even going to dive into those depths, but when Caroline came to me and asked if we could do something special this Halloween for the sweet kiddos she babysits, I of course said yes.
In years past, we’ve always hosted a Fedigan Freight Fest the Friday right before Halloween. It was a neighborhood affair, and friends of Mac and Caroline would attend, and my garden would turn into a haunted maize. This year, the little trick-or-treaters of our neighborhood are walking the cautious route. No surprise that Caroline would want to create a fun social distant Halloween for those that she babysits.
Come see how to create your own ghoulish Social Distance Halloween Costume!!
2020 is the year for this!!
When I was growing up, wreaths were only a big deal around the holidays. When Christmas would roll around, all of our doors had a wreath hanging, and so did a few of our walls. I remember my sweet mama would take down pictures so that she could hang a wreath in its place, and all of our wreaths were made by my grandmothers.
I must say, I do follow in my mom’s footsteps with wreaths, but I do extend my wreath hanging season, and I start hanging my them the minute autumn comes into play. I love to create them, whether I use greenery, or pinecones, or faux stems, or even in this case, nuts.
I’m going to show you how to create a fall festive nut wreath that will outshine all of your other fall wreaths!!
