fall table for 2

After months of heat and mosquitoes,
I am so ready for cooler days and pretty fall colors.
I built a simple little trough, inspired by this tutorial by Shanty 2 Chic,
with some left over wood from building the backyard fence.

To make it more interesting, I added the metallic corners like I did in my vintage French wine tray.
I filled it with candles, straw like pieces and gourds from the grocery store.
And I set up the table for the nice dinner for 2 by the fire place.

Wine inspired French table cloth and napkins serve as a beautiful background,
matching perfectly with my Provence plates.
Now I better send Mon Cheri to the kitchen to cook us for food
for dinner....he is the chef, I am the baker!

Happy day!

  1. Great job on building your cute trough, I really like those metal corners - makes it look vintage!

  2. Thank you, it was fun to build, and even more fun to use through the house!


Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
