Setting A Fall Tablescape

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

table set5

I am having guests over for dinner tomorrow and I will tell you that I am a bit nervous about it. Why? Because one friend that is coming over is a very talented Italian chef. Her food is always delicious. I am not a great cook like her and that is why I am nervous! So I decided to keep the menu simple and let my husband cook something up on the grill. haha

I thought if I set the dining table up pretty, that might impress her and she won’t notice the simple food. haha (I am just cracking myself up). This is my everyday table centerpiece look:

It is not everyday I try to set a fancy tablescape, so I made a practice run to be sure I had everything:

I found this $5.99 Fall colored material from Christmas Tree Shop in the closet and used as my foundation:

I used my everyday dinnerware and just layered:

I do not like to put a lot of decorative items or large centerpieces in the center of table while eating. Where would you put the food?

Well, I think it looks beautiful! I am sure our friends will be quite impressed with my fancy table! haha And that’s what I did all afternoon today!

Do you like setting a pretty table? Do you plan it out before the actual day? Have a great weekend everyone!

Helpful Camera Tip

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

Another reason I love summer is because I am able to find time to do those things I enjoy most. Such as taking photography classes.

I picked up a tip in class this week that I never knew and thought I would share with you because it is smart and useful.

You know how you usually delete your photos on your camera with the little ‘delete’ trash can button? It asks if you want to delete this photo or all photos?

Well, that is how I have always deleted my photos from my memory card. But I found out in class, that every time you delete your images this way, it is corrupting and damaging your memory card and will eventually render your card useless.

The correct way to delete your photos that will not damage your card is to go to your camera’s menu, then setup and then choose Format Card. It will ask if you want all images deleted, select yes/ format.

Formatting permanently deletes all the data on the memory card. The deleted files can not be recovered so be sure to transfer important pictures to your computer!

I hope you have learned a little something new about your camera. Another photography tip I have found so helpful is to find, or order online, a User Manual for your camera. I have been reading page by page while playing with my camera and I have learned so much.

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer! Be sure to take time to do those things you love. Time goes by too fast.

It was my extreme honor and pleasure to meet and work with one of the top photographers in the country, Eric Roth. I have always been a big fan of his beautiful work:

It was a beautiful, sunny day in the mountains when Eric came to my home in New Hampshire last week. He came to take photographs of my design work for my portfolio. I want professional photos for a couple projects I am working on as well as having a physical book of my work that I can show potential clients.

He took interior photos and well as exterior shots, upstairs, downstairs and all my little vignettes he loved! Eric was kind enough to let me follow him all around asking him a million questions:

I was a little nervous taking photos of the great photographer! Watch for Eric’s latest project in the new June issue of House Beautiful with photos for ‘The Bath Of The Month’!
