Outdoor Fall Decor Ideas

Outdoor Fall Decor Ideas | 11 Magnolia Lane

Last week, I posted on all of my indoor Fall decor {you can see that post here}, but I soon realized that I had so many pictures that I'd better save the outdoor decor for a separate post! I actually don't do too much for Fall; just add a few pumpkins (like the rest of the world) and make sure … [Read more...]

    With Thanksgiving coming up next month and the Holidays suddenly JUST around the corner, I have been extra-motivated to get the dining room "guest-ready" in our new home.

I'm heading up to New York this Thanksgiving to be with my family.  My mother loved this holiday; every year she filled her table with all of our favorite dishes including green bean casserole, creamed spinach and her amazing sausage stuffing.   All were welcome at my mother's table and she hosted … [Read more...]

The Thanksgiving Table

Wow! Thanksgiving seems to be upon us. I am traveling for the holiday to my parents and therefore not hosting {thanks Mom!}, so I am spared some of the shopping, prepping and my very favorite part-- the table 'styling'.  I suppose I will just have to deal with the traffic :) I don't want to take … [Read more...]

Good morning!  Let me start by giving a shout-out (and a HUGE thank you) to Kelly at Eclectically Vintage for featuring my old North Carolina house in her Exceptionally Eclectic series today.  Looking at her gorgeous home, and the others she's featured in the past, I am officially in tall cotton!!  … [Read more...]

A Natural Thanksgiving Tablescape–Pine Cones, Berries, and Dried Flowers

Natural Thanksgiving tablescape

We're hosting Thanksgiving here in Nashville this year, so I needed to come up with a quick (and informal) table before the family arrives.  My goal was to use what I have rather than buying new.  With the exception of the champagne-colored chargers (a cross between gold and silver, and therefore … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and usually by now I would be selecting recipes and making shopping lists but this year, I am getting off easy. No, I am not going elsewhere just having a smaller celebration then usual, and keeping it simple. But, Christy has a big celebration going in … [Read more...]

Dressing Up the Screened Porch for Fall

Natural elements on a Fall decorated screened porch

I posted the other day with photos of my front porch, so of course I couldn't leave the screened porch out.  I grew up with a screened porch, and we ate dinner out there almost every night when the weather permitted.  I also spent many an hour curled up out there with a good book.  Small wonder that … [Read more...]

I'm really looking forward to Christmas, but I like to give Thanksgiving its due.  That can be hard, sometimes, when the Christmas stuff is in the stores in AUGUST, but I love Thanksgiving, and I think it's one of our country's most meaningful holidays. My Halloween decor isn't very different from … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving Table

It's Thanksgiving (already!?!)!  The day before Thanksgiving is always my decorating/table setting day (with some cleaning and last minute grocery shopping thrown in!). I actually cherish the time when I can dig out my silver and even though it's always in desperate need of a polish, I feel proud I … [Read more...]
