Table Time 2

Isn't this the cutest idea ever?!! What an act of love because it is HARD to cut those mini pumpkins. These photos are from a women's event at our church. (For more ideas go here).
This table was ooh-la-la. The centerpiece was amazing in its fern and feathery fineness. Then to feather it up even more, it was placed on top of a feather wreath. Loved. it. Now I know what to do with my feather wreath!
Here's one more peek at that cute little place setting.


Another grand idea: using coffee beans and cream/tan/brown candles inside some hurricanes. So simple. So elegant. You can do it!

I hope these were inspiring as you prepare your table of thankfulness for next week.
I have some beautiful Christmas table ideas to show you, but not yet...

Happy Monday!!

Those tables are so beautiful.

It makes me wish I had a crafty/decorating bone in my body.

But I guess I'll just have to live with the LEGO pumpkin centerpiece that one of the children made. It's about as crafty as we get.

Love the coffee beans. Could you smell them too?

I use white or brown or basmati rice in a the bottom of a square plate and place my candles on it.

You may now pick yourself up off the floor that I know how to do something crafty.

I saw this post yesterday or sometime but didn't comment...and my comment is mostly unrelated to your blog...

I have been on several blogs looki ng at folks' DIY projects...and who do I see commenting? New Every Morning...it's like seeing someone you know in a store but being too far away to speak.... :)

I'm not sure why your last two posts aren't showing up on my blog list..the last one that's on the list is the wealthy = happiness post. Which, btw, was excellent! Totally agree with everything you said. This year, instead of looking to get something new, I'm working on fixing things around the house. (grandfather clock, madame alexander dolls that K3 beheaded, you get the picture)

OK, now about this post. Coffee beans?? How awesome is that! I love the photos on this post. Thank you for taking the pictures and sharing with all of us!
