Happy Thanksgiving! I am early, I know it. But with the last minute preparations and overall chaos that will descend upon us in the next days, I wanted to make sure I said it.
Here are a few ideas to make your Thanksgiving a lovely one!
TABLE DECOR AND SETTINGS
A beautiful arrangement and use of cranberries, apples, wrapped leaves and orchid accents from designlab in Portland, Oregon.
I love the simplicity of this centerpiece. A trip to the farmer's market or supermarket will yield everything you need to recreate this informal yet elegant table decor composed of squashes, bell pepper, and kumquats. If these are not in season where you are you can substitute using carrots, persimmons, oranges, and baby pumpkins or anything that catches your fancy.
FOR THE KIDS
DIY Thanksgiving Treat Holders - they can serve as treat holders or place cards.
I discovered this great and easy project over at Sheek Shindigs blog! They have loads of great DIY projects and ideas to decorate the kids table.

This amazing butterfly dress is the creation of graphic designer turned couture fashion designer, Luly Yang. The fantasy dress is created out of silk, crystals and black feathers. It makes me want to take flight! If I was a rich girl, I would love to have this dress in my closet!

When I came back, I was catching up with school, the studio, email, bills: the little things that slip away when you are sipping a cold drink in a hammock while you watch the rain pour down relentlessly.
