Pumpkin Vases

I'd just pinned this adorable photo to Pinterest in preparation for some fun dinner parties this Fall.

And that very same week I got to my parents for dinner and voila - clever mom!

She found her inspiration from Flower Magazine in the below spread, some great ideas to create some beautiful tables this season!

What are you pinning these days? I hate to say it but I've already started pinning Christmas ideas - eeks, where did summer go!

Grays Lane

I'm really enjoying new online magazine Grays Lane. It's a magazine about food and flowers, beautiful clothes, lovely homes and elegant entertaining. Although it's focus is on the Main Line and the greater Philadelphia area, the beautiful content can be enjoyed by those all around the country.

I'm certainly looking forward to their new Fall issue!

Summer Vacation

I've been on summer vacation physically and mentally for the last few weeks and I just couldn't get the blog in the mix. I'm still mentally on vacation but home from a great ten days in Chatham and MV. I'll try to get back to blogging soon as there are always lots of great things happening in the FFC as the days start to get cooler and fall rolls in to town!
