Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

new year's eve table decorations

some of my favorite table or buffet decorations are very simple.  i use silver bells in clear glass jars for both christmas and new year's eve decorations.  the silver bells make a wonderful sound that reminds me of "ringing in the new year"

i have purchased several different sizes of bells and use them on the table or around the center piece. 

this year, i used a large jar filled with silver balls and silver tinsel, and then rimmed the heavy silver tray with silver bells.  i added a silver clock to highlight the new year's midnight ball drop, and the table was complete. a white table runner with white candles keeps the design simple.
