My Better Homes and Garden Fall Tabletop

Now that my kids are a bit older, I'm trying to decorate for holidays and seasons.
And I want the kind of decorations that can be used year after year.  Through I was able to pick out some Better Homes and Garden items for a fall tabletop.  I chose a black wire basket, a 16 piece dinnerware set. and a tablecloth.  All were reasonably priced, especially the basket for $6.41 including tax!

I didn't realize until I set it all out that the design on the plates and tablecloth kinda match...well not really match, but they are similar enough that it looks like its a set.  Now when I have guests come over  everyone will have pretty dinnerware :)
And the scuffs on my table will be unnoticed.  I really wanted the wire basket for bread.  I just finished taking a community bread class so I'm hoping to fill the basket often.  We'll see...laziness often wins out.

I would recommend the above Better Homes and Garden products.  Great quality for the money.  All of the above (sans the fruit) totaled about $64.00.  It was also the first time I used the Ship to Store feature.  It went really smooth.  The item actually wasn't at the first store I chose, so I had to pick another one.  I found customer service to be very fast and helpful.

I received the above items for free to review.  All opinions are my own.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
