Winter Porch Vignettes

This past week I have been changing over my porch from fall to winter.  Pulling together a front porch vignette for each season is something I love.  I usually choose a main over all color and theme.  This year for my winter porch vignette it was about a certain shade of blue, birch white, evergreen and primitive objects and fabrics. “The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely.” ~ Louisa May Alcott Part of creating a charming and welcoming space is to gather a collection of … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving Place Settings

A few years ago, I found these bamboo disposable plates at a yard sale. They were in new packaging and I picked up a few packs of them. It was the best tablescaping money I've ever spent. Those disposable plates, have become my plate chargers for many o'feast. This year is no exception. Usually I use these beautiful plates my mother in law collected for me... after all, they are gorgeous and they totally work with my Vintage Wheat inspired table. But, I wanted a softer look for the table this year, with the … [Read more...]

Artistic Napkin Flowers

I spent years folding stacks and stacks of napkins when working in the restaurant business. I can roll silverware blindfolded, create napkin tents with clean crisp lines and make these napkin flowers as if they were fabric origami. They are my favorite to make and to use on the table. They are pretty easy once you get the hang of it. 1. Take a square napkin, starting with the underside, fold all four corners into the center. 2. Fold all the four corners into the center again. 3. Carefully slide your … [Read more...]

Creating a Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece

Gathering at the table for Thanksgiving, is one of our favorite times of year. Not only do our husbands get to shine (in the kitchen...'cause truth be told, they do most of the cooking) but we get to TABLESCAPE! What is "tablescaping" you ask? It's decorating your table just like you would your room, using color, patterns, textures, fabrics and dishes. We love to brainstorm ideas, colors, themes and templates. Each year we try to switch it up so our guests are surprised and feel valued, knowing we took the time to create a … [Read more...]

Decorating With Pillows

This is my latest pillow purchase.  It's a festive fall-ish whimsical burst of color right off my front door.  (Pier One)  It's sits on my salvaged chair and gather my guests coats and purses.   I love how this pillow complements the burlap coffee sack cushion.  It's making my happy right now, but in a couple of weeks it will be switched out for something that suites the festive coming season.  And, that is the power of the pillow - you can change the mood of a room with one quick switch. The power of decorating with pillows … [Read more...]

An Cuan~Ireland Decor

I just got back last week from a week in Ireland. My husband and I took two of our teenagers, Baker Boy and Zap with us. We went to Rostrevor, Ireland to help friends of ours start the process of opening a cafe. Ever since we closed the doors on Jahva House almost 10 years ago, we have dreamed of helping others open their own coffee shops. Needless to say, we were thrilled to have this opportunity to envision, brainstorm, create a business plan, design floor plans and decor, and share great meals and good pints with … [Read more...]
