I set my table with a grateful heart

 Glad you stopped by today to check out what's happening at MiMi'z Houz.
Wishing you the best.

I'm so exciting to share with you a simple, but 
BOLD WOW factor...
my favorite scarf serving as a table runner. 
 It turns heads when I wear it
 and now
 it's a conversational piece at the table.

 I positioned the patterned scarf on the table and it draped in just the right position.  My first thought, "there's no wrong or right way".  It's what's appealing to the eyes.

Do you feel like that sometimes?
Glad I'm not alone.

So I began my table top design creating a seasonal touch of inspiration.
First inspirational piece: the mirrored tray, scattered with a few green apples and a glass lantern. Loving the reflection.
white plates, leaf plates, stemware

While decorating, I always count my blessings!

grateful for my
 family and friends
with whom I  enjoy and share my home with.

 I don't take my family lightly, as my youngest brother past unexpectedly in September.
He is missed.
grateful for the ones who call me MiMi 
I love the title

grateful for items within my home

Nothing new on this table


grateful for a wide selection of decoration

 grateful  for all the treasure finds
 throughout the year 

grateful for all  repurposed items 

green striped dish towels functioning as napkins.

grateful for so many clearance items
 to choose from

No fancy  tablecloth
Perfect autumn colors    

grateful  for all my Houz friends 

Thanks for the visit.

Every home deserves to shine

Let it shine, let it shine, let it glow!
There is no better accent than a candle and it's candlestick/holder.
What's the occasion?
 no special occasion or special day, or special season
Candlestick/holder displays can be a year round accent.
Just top a table
Display a single candlestick
 do a grouping
enjoy the  glow
Every room deserves to shine.

They come in different heights, shapes. styles, array of colors, full of possibilities.
It's  your choice!
Check out a few choices I made recently.

How festive a grouping of candlesticks/holders

Simple but elegant

A unique display

Remember to never leave a burning candle unattended.
Thanks for visiting.

Celebrating fall with green apples

Let's celebrate
Let's  enjoy 
with a few green apples
and several wooden logs.

Let's carefully placed them on a serving cart

Piled one at a time

log by log
apple by apple.

Just so simple,
making a bold statement.

Who said fall decoration must be just pumpkins!  There are endless fall d├ęcor options.


Green apples really pop

Don't limited yourself to pumpkins

 Gather your apples

Select the perfect container

 For all of you that bake.

Thanks for the visit again today.

Decked out for autumn

Hello again,

I am so happy you stopped by. Let's enjoy the fall day.

Today, I would like to share with you how I added a touch of fall in my living area.  

Pumpkins are the first thing that came to mind why thinking about fall.

Have you noticed there are so many styles to choose from?


and so many


Not to mention

styles again

How does one decide?

Nothing says fall like a few pumpkins. I chose mini orange pumpkins, layered a white glass tray with my mini pumpkins and added a green moss ball.  My inspiration is my trunk.

I knew I wanted to use my recent thrift store grey throw. 
I'm obsessed with shades of of grey and white.

  Just a little grey fall like inspiration!

 Ready to see how it's styled ?

Check out my trunk.
I waited for the second markdown.
  Guess I am a risk taker,
 and this time it worked.
  I still  can't  believe 

I never get tired of talking
 about this trunk.  Love, love, love! 
Can't  you see why?

A storage  unit
A coffee table

Great throw for these fall nites.

Perfect size for  my clock table.  

Ok, grey pumpkins?
 Remember, I love grey.

It was so easy to style this space.
It looks like fall to me.

Gathering table


C'mon in and have a seat at the gathering table.  Pull your seat closer and take a view of my table all dressed and ready for fall.  You may rest your elbows on the table today.  Remember, today only.

My inspiration started with my animal print table runner.  It's a 60 inch piece of cloth folded twice to get the look.  Isn't it just gorgeous?

Hope you wont mind if the pics do the talking as they spell FALL.

 It's time for a closer view.

shades of brown, rustic = FALL 

tree branches = FALL

candle holders and candles = FALL

twigs = FALL

leaves, leaves and more leaves = FALL  


wreaths = FALL


This is fall at the Houz.

Thanks for stopping by.
