Friday Favourites: Table Settings and Pippa's Fall Style

The first week of Fall has come and gone, and in the Toronto area, you really couldn't tell a difference - the temperature is still around 20 C.
Fall weather in the morning, and Summer weather in the afternoon!

Here are my favourites from the past week.

Favourite Fall Table Setting:
Just Destiny: A Golden Holiday Table with West Elm
With Thanksgiving soon, it's a great time to think of creative table setting and decor ideas.
I love how the place holder is a pine cone, painted gold - inexpensive and an easy way to add Fall, gold accents into your holiday table.

Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

In honour of the first day of Fall - almost every Fall as a kid, my family would go to a local apple orchard.
This recipe is inspired by those memories, as the orchard sold many apple baked goods and hot apple cider.

Friday Favourites: DIY Decor and Dining

The week is finally finished!
Here are some of my favourites from Pinterest this week, as well as my new favourite lipstick.

Favourite Dining Room:
I love the way this room is pulled together with the rustic table, and the chic decor pieces.
The colours are neutral in the room, but the subtle pink in the flowers, accented with some more pink around the room would be gorgeous.
Love this way of pairing a more rustic piece with accessories to make the room have a chic feel.
