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!

Giveaway: Angela & Roi Bag

Isn’t this cross-body bag from Angela & Roi just perfect for fall? It instantly reminds me of back to school shopping – when I’d hunt down cool, structured pieces in my favorite dark plum color. Like in 7th grade I had a dark purple cropped denim jacket AND matching flared jeans from XOXO. I may have worn them together too. Oh yeah. Such a trendsetter.
