Thanksgiving Table Decor

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

For the second year in a row, I will be hosting my Family's Thanksgiving celebration. There is a lot of prep that goes into getting ready for the holiday, so the last thing I want to stress about is how I will decorate the table. So when I was thinking about my table decor, I knew I wanted to keep things simple and easy and chose to keep the over all color palette more natural - white, green, and gray with touches of gold.

Because the holiday is centered around the meal, I chose to incorporate different herbs being used in the kitchen. First, I incorporated thyme as an accent in the napkin rings to bring the green color into the place setting. Next, at the center of the table, I used rosemary to create a wreath around the center candle. On either side of the center candle then, I set my favorite white pumpkins. I had originally thought of incorporating a bouquet of white and green flowers, but opted not to in the end. However, as another option for the center of your table, you could swap the pumpkins for small bouquets of flowers. I finished things off then with my gold silverware and white plates. The end result is a simple, but pretty look that will be easy for me to set up on actual Thanksgiving and leave me with plenty of time to focus on other things.





Leather Weather

Jacket: Mackage, Dress: HM, Purse: Fendi, Booties: Cole Haan, Scarf: HM, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
After a warmer than normal Fall, the weather is starting to cool down and it has me pulling out all my Fall and Winter jackets. I had been on the hunt for a new leather jacket for a while and thought I was never going to find one, when I finally came across this one. I love that the jacket looks just as good worn open as it does zipped up and that it’s not too edgy. I hope now that this cooler but not freezing weather sticks around, so I can continue to pair this jacket with my favorite skirts and dresses.








Poncho Weather

Poncho: Similar, Pants: Jcrew, Boots: Stuart Weitzman, Purse: Old Navy, Necklace: Julie Vos
It’s hard to believe it's already November and Thanksgiving is not too far away. Normally by this time of year, I am all bundled up in my winter coat, but the weather this year has been unseasonably warm. So instead, I’ve been able to manage with just some light layers on most days. This poncho is one of the layers I have been wearing the most and I love that it’s cream color makes it easy to pair with things.
