My Granny used to make me one each year. They’re really bright and colorful. I wanted to find a way to these ornaments in a fresh way and decided to use them in a tablescape specifically created for the littles.
Well, after almost an entire year of working nonstop weekends included Team Crowned Goat headed to the cabin for a two-week break to rest, relax and reflect.
This Winter Wonderland Tablescape is inspired by my Mom because she makes every holiday amazing. I’m pretty sure I learned how to set the table before I could spell the word Christmas.
It’s because of my love for the outdoors that I try to decorate with natural elements whenever I can. I needed a way to jazz up the entry and I decided to make a few white ornaments for the tree.
Now imagine you’re having a good time laughing and talking it up until someone mentions how great it would be to “create a wreath as part of the holiday blog series.” No playing, I almost choked.
As soon as I found these old bank bags this past spring I knew immediately I was going to use them as our “stockings” this holiday season. They were perfection. So imagine my excitement when the ladies of this blog series decided we should include wrapping paper.
Every year my Granny gives me a mounding plate of all of her signature-baked goods like Martha Washington balls, peanut butter cups, divinity and peanut brittle. In addition to all the sweet treats, she also gives me a huge bag of shelled pecans from her pecan grove. It’s a dream gift for a fellow baker. With this in mind, I thought I would share a recipe for Pecan Pound Cake.
