Southern Autumn 2010

Well it is a FALL PARTY DAY! Today we are joining:

Tablescape Thursday with Between Naps on the Porch

Fall Open House with Hooked on Houses

Fall Mantle Party with The Nester

So much fun today!!! Here we go – click on the 1st picture to start the show!

First off a Fall Tablescape

Hmmm, got to find a great fall recipe to serve on the fall table.

Now on to some decorations. I have a fireplace, but alas, no mantle. Luckily, Miss Nester was nice enough to include those of us without mantles in her party. I just decorated a little bit everywhere!

Happy Fall, Y’all!

Today’s Lagniappe:  Christi’s Favorite Banana Nut Bread
Heat it up and slather with butter or cream cheese and enjoy on a cool autumn morning with a steaming cup of coffee!

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
3 mashed bananas
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Cream sugar and butter, add eggs, beat well. Sift in flour, soda, cinnamon and cloves, beat well. Mix in bananas and nuts. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake 1 hour at 325 degrees.

    Love your Spode…can’t remember the pattern name…Reynolds?…Marlborough?…brain freeze. I like the way that you layered the gold and crimson table linens. Thanks for the banana nut recipe and for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

    I love your Spode. It was my mother’s pattern. I used it for many years and just recently passed it on to my niece. Very lovely.
