Three Thanksgiving Tables

We had Thanksgiving this year at my aunt and uncle’s house with 26 people. It was a big crowd so we needed three tables for dinner and I had the fun pleasure of decorating the tables. The first table featured velvet leaves and fruit, the second had more elegant natural elements, and the kids table had playful bright leaves and pumpkins. I loved that each one had its own unique feel but they all went together. They were the perfect warm backdrops for a plate piled high with corn pudding, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and turkey.

I also have to thank my cousins Tori and Mimi for helping and my mom for always having so many craft supplies around. I love that this is a whole family holiday from the table to the desserts!

Daily Inspiration

 thankful for what's ahead

Good morning and hello Monday. I’m struggling to start this week off, but I’m looking forward to a great week with family. This is just the beginning of the best time of year. Many things to be thankful for. So many undiscovered adventures ahead to look forward to.


Happy Weekend

rainy cozy snowy halloween fall weather season leaves orange red pumpkin tea woolTime to grab a hot cup of tea and a wool blanket…it’s going to be a yucky and cold weekend. It might even snow later today…what?? Despite the weather, I’m totally inspired by these fall hues – pumpkin orange and burnt red, paired with cozy ivory and heather. So yummy.

What are your weekend plans? I’m not a big Halloween fan, so I’m embracing the weather and wearing jeans, Uggs, a sweater and a tiara AKA “Kate Middleton gone undercover to go to the movies.” At least I’ll be warm and comfy, right?

Be safe, have fun and stay warm and dry. xo!
