A White Fall...

I walked into my dining room, took one look at the stack of "to do" papers...and like the champion procrastinator that I am, I decided to change up the tablescape!

Breezeway Julie called and asked what I was doing. "I should be doing laundry...BUT, I'm fussing over a blue and white tablescape!"

                                               Before BLAH!

You can imagine how excited I was to find WHITE pine cones! (see, white can be a fall color!)

                                   A white pine cone for each guest!

So...when you are feeling overwhelmed by your own "to do" list, take on a completely unimportant and frivolous task!

  1. Beautiful, as usual! But lo, do I detect a red flower amidst yonder blue and white? :)

  2. Well your fussing paid off, the table looks wonderful! I love blue and white, and that photo with your pretty sofa in the background where the blue pillow matches the table is gorgeous.
    I couldn't help but notice the pretty view outside your window too. Wonderful job, and beautiful home!

  3. Wow the table looks so nice! I love the pine cone and the splash of red and green color. Great job! Please feel free to link up to my Make Yourself Monday blog hop!
