Halloween Table for Grown Ups

I haven't really decorated for fall yet.  To be honest last year I decorated early and by the time Thanksgiving rolled around I was so over the fall decorations.  A popular post was my Pottery Barn fall front door. This year I decided to decorate the dining room just a little for Halloween because we were having some friends over for a bit before heading out downtown so I prepared some easy hor d'oeuvres (Apples, Honey and Goat Cheese Crostini)…

What’s Your Christmas Style?

If you follow me on instagram you know that I've finished up with my Christmas decorating and you also know that it's been especially dreary in Indianapolis and I haven't been able to take any good photos to show you my home all decked out for the holidays.  So instead of a home tour this week I thought I'd ask you all what is your Christmas style. Is it traditional?  Maybe red and green? Better Homes & Gardens Do you…
