 Hello Everyone!

A few weeks ago I went down to the basement into my little store room and came back upstairs with lots of yellows, greens and sunflowers!!!

The dishes come from Ikea(where else!!!??)
Oh and the more I think about it, the material for the tablecloth and the runner came from Ikea too!!

The smaller of the two wine glasses is a set of stemware from my mother in law. I have been admiring these glasses for so long and now I get to enjoy them!

 I hope this Tablescape Thursday finds you heathly and happy. We are looking forward to a long weekend, as the 3rd of October is a holiday here in Germany.

Be sure to stop by Susan´s at Between Naps on the Porch for more wonderful Tabelscapes!

 Happy September Everyone!


 I just love these dishes---they belonged to my husbands grandmother and I am lucky to have them. The wine glasses, so petit--are from my mother in law. The tablecloth was a find at TJ Maxx.

Have a wonderful day everyone and see you next week when once again Susan hosts Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch!

Fall Colors

 The calender tells me it is the 12th of September already--wow time is is sure not standing still for me.  Summer break is over and so the cake orders are coming in, catering jobs are  lining up and my adminstrative assistant´s job is going strong! Our son is back full force in school--just 3 weeks in and already the first exams are coming up. Fall also marks the end  of baseball season--well the outdoor games that is---the team now goes indoor for training.

Fall brings not only school, but one of my favorite seasons: HALLOWEEN. I have already aquired this years new decoration ( a purple pumpkin from TK Maxx) and as you can see in the picture below, the dining room table is  also decorated in fall colors.

Happy Monday Everyone!

I love how the paints, my niece ordered for me---perfectly match the table cloth!

89......and still going strong

Oma celebrated her 89th Birthday this past August 1! Wow, 89 years---pretty amazing. Orginally I had not planned to set the table--she was doing very well on her own, but after we had bought the flowers----well, I just could not help myself! I had to spice up the table just a touch. So, off I went to Nanu Nana to get some colored stones and pebbles..... The small flower petals on the table are from Oma´s garden. Shortly after her birthday, Oma made a big change in her life--she moved into a Senior Residence---into an Assisted Living Apartment. We spent a few days getting her moved in and settled and she is doing really great. Today she played bingo for the first time in her life! Even won 3 Euros!!

I truly enjoy Tablescape Thursday---take some time and stop by Between Naps on the Porch for some more lovey, inspiring Tables!
