"TURKISH FLORAL" Theme
"At Our Table We.......Welcome friends and family; talk about our day; share; use napkins not sleeves; chew; swallow; speak; eat our veggies; keep elbows off the table; praise the cook; clean our plates; say please and thank you; listen; help clear the table; and give thanks for the meal." ~ Anonymous
The debut of our November table setting
I purchased this 16-piece dinnerware set (by Jacyln Smith) last year and never opened the box until Sunday when I decorated the table. I layered placemats, plates, bowls and added green glasses for accents to the dinnerware. The deep, dark earthy color brings an elegant look to the seasonal decor, blending especially well with the wood table.

Calling all SmugMuggers...........
Christmas is next month and I am once again, soliciting the help of my SmugMug friends for color scheme suggestions for our kitchen table. I've already received a few really great suggestions. Last year, Judy (aka "fotoeffects"), Karen (aka "kjakes1") and Nelli and Shelia (a colleague) were the winners. Nelli and Shelia suggested the same color scheme. Yes, I designed three different table settings - one in each one of their suggested color schemes........whew:)! Keep in mind that I am not a "traditional" Christmas colors girl; my decorating mantra has always been "Why go for the same-old-same-old when you can go for the bold?"
Have a terrific Tuesday, my friends!
