November family party

Because I started this blog as a journal for my own use, I want to document the way my home was decorated for a family party we had at my house over this past weekend, so you may want to ignore this post and move on.  Otherwise, I hope you enjoy some pics of my home, or at least my living room.
 We had a sit-down dinner for 19 people.  This table is at least 80 years old, maybe more.
 My husband inherited it from his grandfather.  It comes in quite handy when you have huge families like we both do.  Eight kids on his side, five girls and three boys, same as on my side:  eight kids, five girls and three boys.  Then add significant others, and you need a lot of room!

 My daughter made this bunting for us to hang.  Isn't it pretty?  It's made out of paper and ribbon.
 She gave me enough for two doorways.  I had to hand them high because we had some six-foot plus people in the house.  I think a good time was had by all.

  1. What's better than a table that can accommodate the family? That is a really neat heirloom. Your home looks so inviting!

  2. Hi, Jodi. The buntings are really cute--clever daughter! This looks like it was one big affair and what a lovely table decked out to welcome everyone. You're kicking off the holiday season in style!
    best, nadia

  3. What a neat furniture piece to have in the family! And I love that bunting. It looks like it could be made of fabric. Hope you had a great time together. It was undoubtedly a mountain of work!

  4. Good Morning from Maine!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog for a visit! I love the buntings! I've been making some out of vintage sheets...they are just so cheery! And I just saw one made out of stuffed hearts and was so country...I just love it (I'm going to add it to my project list!)

    Have a blessed day,

  5. Hi Jodi! It's Laura from church. I'm following your blog now and you're an awesome quilter. My grandmother used to quilt when she was alive and made one for me for Christmas a few years back. I have it put away for Olivia when she grows up. See you Sunday!

  6. Great party you have there. Your home is just simply cosy, perfect for a family gathering. Thank you so much for sharing.


I love to hear from you!
