Goodbye Winter Buffet


Finally time to start thinking about the transition to spring. This wasn’t my favorite winter buffet design. I don’t think it ever really came together. But it did get me through the season and looking at it reminded me of some good people and times.

Close up

-From left to right, the candle was a Christmas present from John.
-The plate stand was from a trip to Target with Dave.
-The Nautica earthenware was an outlet find of John’s (10 place settings and all of the serving pieces for $110.00) on one of our old trips to Branson.
-Mercury ball and the “C” were birthday presents from Dave. The “C” (a Dave original) is for Claire and is wood painted to look like b and w damask. Little cardinal was a Dave Christmas present.
-Sweet red box was part of a Christmas present from Lori.
-The lamp was “at the auction” with John’s mom.
-The runner was on the bargain table at Williams Sonoma as was the mistletoe garland (from Country Friends).

Sometimes good memories can overcome so-so design.

    We’ll say goodbye to love….I think your buffet works in an “I’m getting ready for the party” sort of way. So glad to see a new goodhome post, I was missing them. Can’t wait to see what Spring brings!

    Does that lamp grant you three wishes if you rub it?

    Sally, why didn’t I think of that sooner. A Genie would have totally made this buffet pop.
