Happy Turkey Day!!

I've always wanted to make Thanksgiving.
There's just something about a beautifully set Thanksgiving table.
So warm and inviting.
The delicious hot yummy meal.
I love the Fall.
I love the changing of the leaves.
The colors are so striking.
But alas, I never get to make it.
Thanksgiving is always spent at my Aunts.
Gathering once a year for a family reunion.
I am most thankful that we can still all get together.

Even though I can't put a Thanksgiving feast together in my actual home, I can at least post what I would do!

 I would try to find a set of eclectic turkey dishes. My color scheme would be hunter green, mustard, gold, and berry wine. I would get huge glass vases and add cranberries and chestnuts to the bottom and put XL pillar candles inside. Small candles would accents around the table.

 Setting my table in a formal setting would be a must.

For the kids table, I would go with something playful and fun. It's always best to engage the little ones with a colorful and festive table.

I am really loving homemade candles this season so I would make as many as I could.

I would also put together some beautiful crafts for the holiday decor.

Love the handmade pine cones.


 Not only am I thankful for my family, but I am also thankful to all of you. 
My fans are what keep me doing what I love to do!

Here is my gift to you! 


Happy Turkey Day!

  1. I love this post! I also like to plan what my holidays would be like if I made them in my home, but at the end of the day I'm grateful I don't have to do all the work :)
