Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I could not be more excited! Such a special time of year that highlights our loved-ones and reminds us all to be thankful for what we do have instead of worried about what we don’t. I absolutely love this holiday and I am looking forward to spending it with those I love.

Thanksgiving, for most of us, means only one thing–food! Lots and lots of food. Turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole–the list goes on and on. But why not surprise your loved ones with an extra special treat at the end of the night? Give your out of town visitors a snack for the ride home. You can use brown paper bags, miniature glass jars, or whatever else you want. Make your own snacks or buy your favorites from the store. This is a simple way to say ‘thanks’ as your guests are walking out the door.

Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving is only a few days away so for today’s table I could not help but be inspired by the upcoming holiday. Thanksgiving Day is like the ultimate Sunday dinner even though it’s on a Thursday. The entire day is dedicated to spending time with family and friends, around the dinner table, with an outrageous amount food, and at my house, a festive tablescape is also a must.

Now, just because there is an abundance of food on this day it doesn’t mean that your decorations have to also be over the top. A simple display of glassware and bitter sweet is all you need to set your table, and the tone, for this special time with family and friends. For added fun, we placed pumpkins around the base of our display and just like that—your Thanksgiving tablescape is complete!

Happy Early Thanksgiving! Eat lots of turkey and give lots of hugs!

The month of November is all about giving thanks and I most definitely have a lot to be thankful for. Today I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity to be a guest blogger on Interior Canvas. Anna Kristen and Cameron, the remarkable ladies behind this blog, are fellow design enthusiasts. Their love for interior design is simply contagious!

They enlisted my help and asked that I show them how to create the perfect Thanksgiving centerpiece. I was beyond flattered and more than happy to show them a few of my tricks. Arranging this centerpiece definitely put me in the Thanksgiving spirit and I couldn’t be more excited to share it and my gratitude with all of you.
