I typically wait until the day after Thanksgiving to listen to holiday music, but I couldn't resist this year.
So . . . I've been happily decorating and Fall baking to the sounds of Christmas tunes.
Sounds lovely, except that it started stirring an excitement to begin decorating for Christmas and holiday baking.
Friends, we're still in November . . . and haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving yet. So I'm trying hard to enjoy THIS amazing season and all the wonderful sights, sounds, and smells that it brings to us this time of year.
Yes, I'm still listening to holiday music . . . it's so hard not to now; but I thought it would be fun to share a few more Fall favorites to keep us on track (wink!). I hope you enjoy!
My dear friends, the Waren's (thank you!), gave me these beautiful persimmons. They're from their backyard. I can only image how breath-taking their tree is this time of year!
So I'm thinking that these will make for the perfect Persimmon White Chocolate Bread Pudding! Stay tuned for photos and recipe!
Have you seen these darling Cinnamon Whisks?
I found them at Trader Joe's (99 cents! each) a few weeks ago . . . and bought several of them.
Their cinnamon scent sure smells like the Holidays. I have them hidden in various rooms in our home.
I bought these two TALL, slender terracotta pots when I visited J. Woeste (read more about this beautiful nursery here) last weekend.
They're going to make the perfect home for these Paper White bulbs!
And what is Fall without more amazing Fall baking . . .
. . . . . . . .
Cinnamon Crumble Cookie Bars
with Pumpkin Spice glaze
petite Pumpkin Cheesecakes
with a sweet sour cream topping
Pumpkin Butter Streusel Cakes
. . . . . . . .
I bought these 'baseball pumpkins' while visiting Avila Valley Barn on our Annual 'girl's trip' last weekend. I piled them high in a pewter bowl . . . and paired them with one of my bigger lemon cypress.
And here's a final peak at the theme of this year's Thanksgiving table . . . pumpkins & pansies.
This year marks my 4th year hosting Thanksgiving Dinner for our family . . . and I couldn't be more excited or thankful!
LET'S STAY in touch!
