Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Tabletop Tuesdays:

Halloween has really taken off as an all-out holiday.  You can really out do yourself if you're not careful - so many choices in the stores and between Martha and Country Living Magazine, you have no excuse!!

As for me, I have to confess, I have fallen short in the the homemade table decor category this year.  I have so many things vying for my time.  However, because I always have my eye on things, am an avid catalog reader and shopper, I do have an extensive closet of decorations.  I must say TJ Maxx isn't just for the fashionistas!! And if you wait until after Halloween, I bet you can pick up some great decorations on sale from Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel and Williams Sonoma.

Here's my table:
Table runner from last year's Crate and Barrel catalog; tin pumpkins from TJ Maxx - 4 years ago; and indian corn and mini pumpkins from the farmer's market - this year.

Oh, and my favorite TJ Maxx score - the candy corn dish.  Don't you just love it?
