We love bread boards for entertaining, as a base for a centerpiece, or just displaying them on the wall in the kitchen.

One of the beautiful things about collecting these lovely wooden boards is that each one is different. All of them have aged in their own distinct way, so you will never find any two that look the same. Check out our best boards, don’t wait these boards go fast.  See our entire collection here > Bread Boards

Something as simple as Fromage blanc from Paris can be so special and appealing.

I adore everything about this 1935 photo of a Paris Fromage frais seller. His clothing, the salesmen case and especially the goats, look like a scene from a movie.

A quaint shop specializing in Fromagerie, how fun would it be to ride a vintage bike to the village and fill the basket with bread and cheese!

These are the most gorgeous carrara marble counters and shelves I’ve ever seen. Anything would be stunning displayed on them.

Does this Fromage blanc et framboises almost a french yogurt with raspberries look delicious? Or perhaps it’s all about the pretty presentation! Vintage silver spoons and pretty glass?

A vintage milk bottle, glass and ironstone plate perfect for this snack.

A vintage farm table is simple yet the beauty of the Fromage and the pairings make an elegant presentation.

So I’m wondering do we love the boards? Are we romanced by the serving accouterments and how they are artfully used in the presentation?

Or do we love it all...the romance of the Fromage blanc!

My design tip: Anything can be presented simply and look delicious if you use some special vintage pieces and artfully arrange the items.

Have a beautiful autumn weekend, Sip some wine, crack open a loaf of bread and try tasting some delicious fromage blanc.

Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
A Season To Gather

Shorter days bring change to our schedule. Dinners are earlier and we spend a little more time when we are gathering. Waking up to a little crisp morning air has been nice! Living in Southern California I really look forward to this change and of course, entertaining becomes like fall fashion!
This is the time of year you can start layering your decor. Texture and natural elements add instant coziness.

Generous table linens cover up the bare table legs like a gown.

Stacking different shapes and patterns of plates is more casual. Also implies a lingering meal.

A large vintage bowl filled with apples welcomes everyone with the glow from floating candles.

Some type of flame from a lantern or candle creates a warm ambiance.

Garden elements are great pieces to nestle in for adding texture, so beautiful with vintage silver.

The best part is you don’t have to change a thing, to move your gathering outdoors!

My design tip: To get this look cozy autumn look, layer linens, plates, with candles or lanterns. Use natural elements like wood, twigs, leafs, apples for center piece or place setting markers. Vintage silver and glasses add to the gathering experience.

Have a gorgeous weekend!

In fall you just can't go wrong with good comfort food. It is my favorite way to warm up my 'lil farmhouse as the days get chillier. If you are a fan of the farmhouse style is such an easy way to compliment your decorating and make your home welcoming!

Using vintage and antique tools makes it even more fun!

So get busy cutting up that pumpkin and chopping apples and your heart, home, and stomach will be feeling full and happy in no time!

Brown Transferware

Brown Transferware...a decorative technique using transfer printing developed in England in the mid-18th century.

This is one of my favorite vintage brown tansferware platters. I love adding to my collection...Hunting for these vintage pieces is fun, if I’m lucky I’ll spot a great piece on a table full of dishes!

 

 

 

I’m right at home with pairing the Brown pieces with my vintage silver flatware. I love them together, particularly for entertaining outdoors in Autumn...its my true Casual loves elegance!

Have a beautiful weekend, hope you spot a vintage treasure to add to your collection ....or be inspired to start a new one!
