New Year’s Eve Table 2022

New Year’s Eve Table 2022

Happy Thursday everyone!  I’m so excited to show you my New Year’s Eve Table 2022.  This table is casual with a touch of fancy!  It’s perfect for evening dinner New Year’s Eve or breakfast, lunch, or dinner New Year’s Day!  I wanted a combination of red, white, silver, plaid, glass, Santa, trees, and bulbs for a festive look.  I loved taking pictures with the lights dimmed, candles burning, and these adorable lighted figurines I purchased last year from Lenox!  See my videos and where I got...

Christmas Table 2021

Christmas Table 2021

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today on the blog is my Christmas Table 2021.  I am using my same dishes from last year HERE but this year I really thought about how many dishes I would actually need based on the meal I plan to make.  I decorated my tables early this year but already had most of my menu planned out.  I've added soup to the menu this year so I was sure to add a bowl for that.  It is ok to put out dishes that do double duty like the ramekins that I plan to use for my dessert.  When...

Christmas Eve Table 2021

Christmas Eve Table 2021

Happy Monday everyone!  Today on the blog is my Christmas Even Tablescape 2021.  The inspiration for this table is a vintage tablecloth from Mr. TAL’s mother.  This tablecloth was on every Christmas table of theirs growing up and now we get to re-create a festive holiday table. My favorite color is red and these Pioneer Woman Holiday dishes are the perfect color for this year’s theme of red, white, green, and gold.  I love a combination of vintage, antique, and new and my ribbon candle holders...

How To Keep Your Natural Trees And Fresh Greens Healthy Over The Holidays

Happy Tuesday everyone!!  How To Keep Your Natural Trees And Fresh Greens Healthy Over The Holidays.  In my post on Monday, I talked about the types of holiday plants toxic to your pet and thought this would be a nice follow-up to that blog post.  I love a natural look around the holidays on the outside of the house.  This year, I used faux decor in front on the porch but next year, I hope to extend my decor across the front and along side the garage.  Every year I buy something new to...

What Holiday Plants Are Toxic To Pets?

Happy Monday everyone!  On the blog today is What Holiday Plants Are Toxic To Pets?  I absolutely love natural greenery around the outside of the house but prefer a fake tree inside so the dogs are safer there.  But what if I decorated the outside around the holidays with toxic plants and pines?  Would I even know what was toxic and what was not?  I’m here to give you the run down and what to consider when decorating and gift giving when our pets are involved.  I'm glad I put this post...

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I can’t believe it’s November 10th already.  I wanted to spend all of November on Thanksgiving Day food, decor, Jake, and Maggie but as the emails come in, I’m realizing I need to get you a Holiday Gift Ideas post for you and your pet(s).  Mr. TAL and I spent Saturday shopping, having lunch at Burg’s Pizza and attending an event and craft fair at Bedner’s Greenhouse on Bees and Beauty hosted by Pittsburgh Honey.  It was an educational experience we won’t forget.  Nor...

2021 Floral Landscape (Part 2)

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Today is the second part of my 2021 Floral Landscape design along with some helpful information I’ve learned along the way.  Normally I plant and then wait a year to blog about it since perennials and shrubs take awhile to bloom and spread out but this year I couldn’t wait.  Our goal was to finish our shed and start on the landscape around the shed (more to see next year) which we accomplished but I’ve had a few people ask me about deer resistant plants.  In this...
