I am ready for entertaining. I have been shopping for a few new thing to add to my fall table decor this year. I wanted to do add a bit of a rustic look, but needed to match the dishes and silver that I already owned.
Gordmans asked me to be a part of their Fall Home Campaign and I was thrilled! There are a number of other bloggers on this tour with me, I would like to welcome my friends from The Striped House, who is just ahead of me in this blogging chain.
I am so glad your here!
I found everything I needed at Gordmans. My first grab was this Thankful sign. I love it! Simple and rustic, it captures the essence of the season to be Thankful.
I love the little stand it sits on, I think it will come in very handy for cook books, frames and many other things after the season is over.
The little mason jars are salt and pepper shakers, aren’t they adorable? I bought two pairs since our table is long and we always seem to be fighting over the shakers.
I had been shopping for lanterns for a while. I found these lovely vintage style lanterns and added candles and faux leaves underneath them for some additional color.
The center piece is a simple wire basket filled with seasonal gourds and some sisal balls. I love the additional color and texture the balls add to the display.
Each place setting gets a white iron stone bowl and gourd. The stem on this gourd is just amazing. Definitely a keeper!
I fell in love with the little chalk painted place tags the minute I saw them in the store. I decided to have each person write what they were thankful for on the tag instead of doing names.
Even my buffet gets a new look for the occasion. I brought in my pumpkins from out on the porch to display and add more color to the room.
I have a great story to tell you about that aqua vase.
I was in the Gordmans store over the weekend shopping. I snatched this aqua vase off the shelf the minute I saw it. I didn’t even look at the price, I JUST GRABBED IT.
Somethings affect me that way. They call to me.
I knew this vase HAD to come home with me.
Then, I went to the floral department to find some flowers to go in the vase.
I snatch up these lovely green and white peonies from the sea of orange florals, and tried them out in the vase in my shopping cart. I noticed a woman standing near by watching me. She seemed uncertain what do choose for her bouquet.
A minute later she came over and said:
“I just wanted to let you know that I am buying EXACTLY what you have in your shopping cart because I think it’s just beautiful!”
It was the nicest compliment, I was smiling all day!
