Art to Inspiration

April’s Art to Inspiration just happens to fall on my birthday! So with this lovely pink and green painting, I started planning a girly, garden party. Just the way I’d love to celebrate!

Our Thanksgiving Table

I wanted to share some scenes from our lovely Thanksgiving table. Most everyone asked me what I was baking, but unlike last year, I kept the sugar in the pantry and instead helped with other tasks. (My aunt brought all of the amazing desserts including a fantastic blueberry pie!)

I set and decorated our tables in purple and gold, with a fruit-filled cornucopia centerpiece and shimmering candles. My mom made beautiful “I am thankful” tags, which each person filled out and hung on the chandelier. For a veggie platter, I took a tip from Martha and wrapped glass bowls in cabbage leaves and made dip bowls from radicchio heads. I loved how this spread turned out! We all noshed on veggies while watching my older brother deep fry a turkey. This was the first year we’ve done this and it was a huge hit. We didn’t burn down the house and we had a lot of fun with it too. After the turkey was done, we deep fried some cranberry sauce…yes, cranberry sauce…and those little “pies” were just incredible.

I had a really nice Thanksgiving with family and friends and I hope you did too. So take a peak…

Bedside Manners

A simple formula: beautiful bed + eclectically designed bedside table. Voila. A perfect bedside scene.

I’ll be honest, my bedside table doesn’t really follow this rule at the moment. But I’m working on it. What do you keep next to your bed?
