Happiest Thursday, friends!!!  Hope you all are having the best week and that those of you affected by Hurricane Mathew are staying safe.  We are feeling thankful that it doesn't look like we will get a direct hit here, but are settling in for what looks like is going to be a weekend full of rain.  And hopefully lots of snuggles! :)

In good news, the temperatures have finally dropped here some, and it's feeling like fall!!!!!  Which makes this post so much more relevant, since I don't know what could be better this time of year than some warm coffee and a table full of breakfast treats?!  I am super excited to be teaming up with Starbucks® to share a fun tablescape, coffee & croissants!


This tablescape was so much fun to do, and just gives me all the cozy, fall feels!  It would be super easy to recreate at home, possibly for a girls brunch, fall open house, or even a treat for Thanksgiving morning (only over a month away!).  Here is what I did!

1 - Step one was by far the easiest, as long as you consider taking two kids to the grocery store easy! ;)  I literally have no time to bake these days, so I hauled the little ladies to our favorite grocery store (which has the best homemade goods) and chose a few.  Croissants, muffins, and scones are always my go-to since they are easy for people to eat and also ideal for tablescapes, since they can look so pretty in serving trays!  I also got some yogurt and granola, which also tends to look pretty when served!.

2 - I pulled out all my favorite serving trays and canisters & tried to stick to seasonal fall colors, then played around with what fit or looked best in each one.  I also added a blanket for extra layering and just to set the tone!


3 - My favorite part, the drinks and - caffeine!!!!  I took our Keurig from the kitchen and brought it to our bar cart, along with a fun pumpkin beverage dispenser for water.  Starbucks sent over their new Starbucks® Latte K-Cups® pods, so I filled a couple containers with both packets to complete both steps.  Also, of course, fun straws to complete the look!


To make the drink, the steps are super easy!  The first is to pour the flavor packet into the mug, and step two is to brew the beverage and stir.  We are obsessed with our Keurig® and how easy it is to use, so I absolutely loved the option of having this new drink to serve to guests that come over.  It was delicious and I will be drinking it myself all fall long! :) I also love that they are made from milk, and with no artificial flavors!  They come in 3 great Starbucks® signature flavors (Caramel, Mocha, and Vanilla) and 2 of my favorite Starbucks® seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha), available for a limited time.  You can get these at your local grocery store.


Hoping this gives you some inspiration for some fun tables over the next month or so!  Happy fall y'all!  XO
