hello thursday! here on the blog, thursdays are all about looking back through the archives to find topical posts from the past that are just as relevant and full of great ideas for recipes, fashion and home decor. in case you’ve missed any of my fall decor tours this week, check out my front porch or my living room, refreshed for fall. since we are fully into fall, i thought it would be a perfect time to revisit some of our fall tablescapes from last year. i love to set a beautiful table even if it’s only for two. especially this year as we are eating at home more often than ever, setting a pretty table is a gentle reminder that a dinner at home can be just as special as going out to a restaurant. enjoy today’s fall tablescape collection, i hope it gives you some inspiration for setting your fall table!
what? it’s friday? already? on one hand i’m soooo happy the week has come to an end. but on the other hand where the heck is this year disappearing to? let alone this week? it’s funny but the blog keeps my inner clock running and i’m hyper aware when monday and friday roll around. thankfully, oscar is blissfully unaware of the week zipping by and is in his groove ready for his weekly gig. in fact, he’s helping, errr, watching me, prep for a dinner party this weekend. well, he did escort me to the herb garden to snip a few basil leaves for the bruschetta. a yummy appetizer which i’ll happily share at the end of the post.
it’s friday gang! it’s been a solid week over here on the blog. in case you missed it, we did a deep dive into fall fashion aimed for the career woman (but also here). we also officially introduced a new YouTube series fashioned squared over here on the blog. definitely check it out, especially if you’re looking for outfit ideas. i show you three ways to wear a white shirt. video above. but today is friday. and i have a crowd over tonight—all of my sons are in town. and of course we could go out to eat, but there’s nothing quite like a home cooked meal. in the spirit of keeping it simple ya’ll—more time for laughs—i’ve got an instant pot turkey chili recipe for you. time to kick back, relax, and pour a drink.
