Entertaining...

 When my sis-in-law decided to elope, thus depriving me of a glorious fall wedding... I decided I needed to celebrate with her anyway!  (And yes, I do realize it's more about her than me... I'm just saying. I love weddings!  I can't help it.)
 I put together a seasonal, yet fun table centerpiece. 
 Did you know that sunflowers will turn red if you put them into a jar of dye?  I didn't know that.  I bought them this color, but I suppose it would be easy enough to create on your own. 

 So fun and harvesty.  I can't wait!
 I found tiny little apples that complimented the whole table scape beautifully, and the best part- we can eat them!
I love a good dinner party! 


Have you celebrated anything recently?

Holy, sweet tablescapes! That is gorgeous. I didn't know you could dye sunflowers. What genius thought of that?

I love your table scape. Makes me want to have a fall party, and I don't even really have a reason. Where did you get those red checked napkins?

I love this tablescape. It is soooo delicious!
That sign is cool too in the background. What exactly does it say? Did you make it or buy it?
Enjoy your day!
