I have been so busy this week at work I haven’t even had time to show you all the fun I had last weekend. I wanted to prep for our holiday table with flowers and making a table overlay. I wanted to mix poinsettia’s in with red roses for my table. I haven’t always been a red person but lately I have been loving it! I wasn’t sure how the poinsettia blossoms would hold up…after a week I would say they are ok….some of the blossoms look better than others. Next year I might have to mix in something else. Or just make it closer in. The red roses hold up well but the others have faded a bit. I wanted to make the arrangement a bit out because I wanted to enjoy them for as long as possible since we go away to our families for the holidays.
I also made this table overlay last weekend. Just added pom poms to the edges – pom pom’s make everything better!
Can’t wait to see how it all looks for our Holiday dinner this weekend! I will share more next week!
If you know me at all you would know I love dishes, especially tea cups. I have a special place in my heart for them. They remind me of fighting with my sisters on who could bring my grandmother a cup on a Saturday morning when she would visit for the weekend. But I must admit I do have a problem. I have way too many of them. But at least I use them all!

Happy Tuesday. The weekend got away from me. It was busy but very nice and relaxing. I went up to visit my sister and her husband this weekend, and it took it as one last chance to celebrate summer. So we decided to have an outdoor colorful dinner party. We wanted to string up lights in her trees, but we realized we didn’t have enough so we created a make shift chandelier with the lights we did have, some branches, and a tomato cage from her garden. It created a perfect ambiance for our last summer dinner.
Looks like it could have been one of our last hot weekends, this weekend it is suppose to be only 65 degrees!
