To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

FALL TABLESCAPE FEATURING WATERBURY LEAVES
Do you enjoy creating a Fall look on your dining table?
If you are hosting a family and friends soiree,
then they will certainly appreciate your efforts
when gathering in the kitchen for delicious foods and beverages!
It seems that Pier One features the most gorgeous china patterns
when it comes to seasonal decor.
The Divine Miss M celebrated a birthday
last month, so I thought a set of new dinnerware
would be a nice gift for her.
These beautiful navy dinner plates and appetizer plates
are now being used in her Atlanta home.
This pattern is known as Waterbury Leaves...I thought I would try
my hand at a Fall tablescape using the colors of Navy, olives and crimsons.
I just love the rustic textures of the season...
this woven table runner was ideal for using in this setting.
Sometimes, it will surprise you when using non-traditional
colors for Fall....I never really thought of incorporating Navy
into a table display, but I really love the look.
I also wanted a centerpiece that would serve
well in a small space..with the pumpkin being
open, it allows guests to see each other when sitting on
opposite sides of the table, plus it also serves as candlelight
in the evenings.
You may want to scatter faux gourds and leaves throughout
your table to complete your seasonal festive look!
Now you are ready to relax for a fun and festive evening!
Happy Birthday Miss M.!!!
