Today I set a special table for you as part of the Styled & Set Tour organized by Lory of Designthusiasum.
If you are coming over from my friend Ann at On Sutton Place welcome!
I am really excited to share all that went into it and to see if you are like me and ride the holiday cusp.
You see, every year I have a hard time parting with my pumpkins.
After searching high and low for the elusive white pumpkins, lugging home Cinderellas and never able to resist a baby boo, I amass quite a patch every season.
So when Thanksgiving is over, but I am still not ready for full on Christmas, I like to ride the cusp with a transitional table.
Today I am sharing a fancy transitional table. Probably not your everyday table ~ mine either, but you can get ideas from this display to work into any type of transitional table.
I also have some very special items on this table, which I know you will love to learn about.
The stunning embroidered linen napkins are from my friend Lidy at French Garden House. Give yourself a treat & visit FGH. Both Lidy’s blog and shop are exquisite. And… this week there is is very generous give away to French Garden House going on HERE.
Have a gander at these velvet pumpkins from Monya at Plush Pumpkin. Visit Plush Pumpkin HERE.
I will search no longer for the perfect white pumpkin, as I now have an everlasting one…and a silver & gray one to make it a trio. And, I could gush about the acorns too!
You can learn lots more about French Garden House & Plush Pumpkins and three other fabulous shops by listening to my podcast chat “Shop Small – Give BIG”. Just click the arrow to tune in and listen.
Let’s get back to my transitional table…
I used a piece of plaid flannel from Joanne’s as my runner.
A metal basket I found in my barn when we loved in to corral the pumpkins, pinecones, string lights & moss.
The baby boos weren’t as white as I wanted them to be so I spray painted them with white chalk based paint.
A few sprigs of boxwood also got a spray – gold for them – and tucked in with the velvet pumpkins.
The little ornaments are from Restoration Hardware and were quite reasonably priced for a set in a little bag.
If your pumpkins aren’t orange, I think they surely have a place on the transitional table.
All you need to do in order to ride the cusp is to keep it neutral, add a bit of metallic and a nod to both seasons/holidays.
You feeling it ~ I think you are riding the cusp with me already!
Now head on over to the other creative & inspirational bloggers touring with me today. Coincidentally, Lidy at French Garden House is next on the tour, so you can go see her & the napkins right now!
I know you will really enjoy what each of the bloggers are sharing. They are all my great friends and each one is a creative genuis!
