Rose Blossom November Blog Hop: Home Decor


Welcome to the Holiday Season and to November's Home Decor Blog Hop!

If you came from Lynn's Bungalow (a hard act to follow! love her stuff!) you're on the right path.

Here are your stops along the way:

Thanksgiving is a huge deal in our home. What began as a core family of seven is now a family of seventeen! {add the 6 fur-kids and we have 23!} We are truly blessed and enjoy this day together so much! This is the only family dinner I insist on having everyone seated together and I make sure it's special. Truth be told ... I love setting a table!

Here's a peek at some of what I have in store for my favorite dinner guests:

I love setting a special treat at each place setting and these little Artiste boxes are perfect for the truffles I picked up at my local candy shop. I used each of the beautiful printed papers from the Pathfinding Collection. The boxes are on page 38 and were cut at 4". The Metallic Baker's Twine, Glitter Paper, and Perfect Fit Thanksgiving Stamp Set (B1427) add a touch of shine without taking away from that beautiful paper!

This is what I call "Plate Confetti"! I've been in the market for new dishes but have yet to zero in on a set that really trips my trigger {unless I count the ones that are so far out of my budget it isn't funny!}
So while the search continues, I will use the trusty Corelles that have served my family meals for nearly 30 years (holy-moly-rocky!) I spruce up the table setting by placing themed, random cut, and stamped shapes on the dinner plate. When it's time to dish up, the plate confetti becomes table confetti! Super easy and fun!

The confetti pieces were created using the Harvest Happiness Stamp Set (C1463) and coordinating cuts from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, The large pumpkin was stamped and trimmed from the new "Beyond Measure" stamp (A1160).

Thanks so much for joining our November Blog Hop. 

Your comments are welcome and appreciated by all of us and we hope you join us in December. 

Thanksgiving Blessings to You and Yours!
