Weekend Five

Ahh...the weekend. 
It is time for Random Saturday over here
where there is a bit of this and that and anything else
 all together in one little post.

Things like a table styling with black and white.
A box of velvet pumpkins and
 a yummy cake that simply had to come home with me.

Black & White

I took a walk on the bold side last week with a styling I did that involved black and white. Something about stripes on the table and topped with white dishes, gold flatware and of course- the most perfect shade of apricot roses- it was bold and beautiful.

Velvet Pumpkins

Kind of in love with them and a whole box full of them arrived this week from Balsam Hill.
From orange to green to teal to vanilla... and with those real pumpkin stems
they are so cute. I am mixing them in with some of the pumpkins I found last year 
and some baby boos- and will share where they landed next week.


Pumpkins & wheat & greens -oh my.
 It is starting to look like fall over here more and more each day. 
And though I have not found any of those yummy faded Cinderella pumpkins
 that are remaining elusive so far this year,
I am joining a great group of bloggers next week for a Fall Home Tour.

A piece for you a piece for me

After a hike in the mountains this week, I ventured over to Whole Foods to see if they might have those shabby pumpkins (they didn't) but I found a treat instead. 
This cake was topped with macarons at Whole Foods but the size & shape
 was perfect and so it caught my eye. (bonus- the macarons are delicious)

It is a darling little cake that was perfect for a styling I am working on-
 and those gorgeous blooms. Yes please.

5 minute Summer to Fall Mantel

A few changes and yes, just a few minutes and my Summer mantel got a new look for Fall
See how simple it was to keep that same styling and make it work for a new season over
 in my post at the HomeGoods blog this week.

That is it for today
happy weekend everyone.
