Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to pop in to say Happy Thanksgiving.  I am grateful for many things in my life, and I am definitely very thankful for all of you who stop by to read the blog.  The fact that you take time from your busy lives to read and encourage the blog is such a blessing.

I am signing off to enjoy the day with my family.  I will be back in full Christmas decorating mode after Thanksgiving.


Chic Thanksgiving Centerpieces

I am very lucky that I have both my parents and in-laws very close by, so I never have to host Thanksgiving!  I am sure that one day it will fall on my shoulders, but until then I can dream of  Thanksgiving tables that I never have to put together in reality! The roundup of centerpieces below all have something in common.  In my opinion, they are rustic and showcase the bounty life has to offer.  Definitely things to be appreciated at Thanksgiving.  This first centerpiece is my favorite.  It is so natural and the colors so beautiful.

What do you think?  Do you ever decorate your table with natural elements such as fruit, vegetables or feathers?


Add Some Flair To Your Thanksgiving Table

If you have been reading this blog since its inception, you know I have a bit of an obsession right now with gold and gold and white.

I think is the perfect warm shade to accent a holiday table, especially a Thanksgiving table.  Metallics add such a rich feel and gold gives off such a warmth.

I have rounded up a few entertaining essentials in my favorite hue!!

Anthropology has this beautiful gold place setting that would make such a statement.

These gold dipped glasses from Jayson Home would make even plain soda water sparkle!

Who doesn’t fight over the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner?  This 24 karat gold-plated wishbone from Jason Home might just have your guests wishing they could take half of this bad boy home.

This would be such a whimsical decorative accent on top of a pile of books on a coffee table.

Wayfair has a selection of gold pepper grinders that are to die for.  Doesn’t this utilitarian object feel so luxe in gold?

Finally, these sets of napkin rings from ZGallerie would perfectly finish off a place setting.  I really like the modern “spikey” ones for an non-traditional approach.

You are probably not as obsessed as me, but what do you think?
