hello everyone!  it's me tiffini over at house of belongingi will be short and sweet because if any of you are feeling frantic being torn by being a working mom & just a "mom" mom like i have been lately

i took this last weekend and inserted some rest time for me one of the things i wanted to do was have a sit-down dinner with the kids

here's what i did

i ran to the local grocery store looking for creamy white flowers.  mind you we are in rural missouri so there isn't markets everywhere and the flower selection was scarce

mini roses were all they had in a white.  CHECK

i had a pumpkin from our visit to the pumpkin patch with the grandkids.  CHECK

i hallowed out the inside filled it with water trimmed the stems down and arranged the flowers in the pumpkin

we had leaves already so we made a little "blanket" of leaves to sit the pumpkin on added a couple of our small pumpkins around.  CHECK

simple and pretty

at the end of the day it is those faces that matter it's not how fancy or expensive or perfect it seems

just taking a little extra time to make the table pretty to be thankful to be able to sit around a table of food and enjoy one another

TIPS.....:)

-you could use fall colored flowers or leaves

-you could use a white pumpkin or the brighter orange

various size pumpkins

-you can paint the pumpkins

-you could setup a little vignette of fall goodness and add in some halloween touches for the night

it will take you through until thanksgiving..just keep changing it up a little

have a fun and safe halloween...i think we are having a little fire pit time with smore's and hotdogs what plans do you have for halloween night?

see you next month:)
