Autumn Tablescapes

I got my creative juices flowing the other day and pulled some things together from around the house and got out some of my fall stuff from the attic.  Love the way it turned out.

I really like this napkin fold with the pocket for the silverware.  This was my first attempt and I ended up going with something different.

This pumpkin is covered with the neatest leaves.  They feel like faux suede.

Halloween 2010

Stacy bought this amazing 9foot cat for the front yard!  I thought he was SO cool!  His head moved back and forth and his body lit up!  Here are some pictures of the boys on Halloween.
Dason, Bradley, and Patrick our neighbor.
Bree's kittens...Rock Star (the black one) Precious aka Little Bit (the gray one).  So cute!

Bradley was a Scarecrow and Dason was Scream!


Dason.  Check out the white socks!  lol

MMmm Nutella

Can't remember where I found this recipe (maybe The Pioneer Woman), but I think it sounds wonderful!  Can't wait to give it a try!

                                                                                            Nutella Gooey Butter Cake
Prep Time 15 Minutes
Cook Time 50 Minutes

1 box (18-20 Oz. Box) Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 whole Egg
8 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Nutella
3 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
8 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
16 ounces, weight Powdered Sugar
Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and Nutella until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread Nutella mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake as the center should be a little gooey.

Serve with fresh whipped cream.
