As always, it was next to impossible for me to get out of bed this morning due to my lack of the 'morning person' gene however once I realized it's only a three day week it wasn't so bad (the coffee helped too of course). This year I will be going to the east bay to my aunt and uncle's beautiful Berkeley home for the Thanksgiving feast. My sister and I will be heading over early to help Aunt Jeanne cook (or rather to watch her cook while we sip on cocktails and dish about the latest happenings).
Being the passionate decorator that I am, I have to admit that the food and family is not my only draw. Table setting, centerpieces, place cards and the like have me scouring various blogs and Pinterest for inspiration.
My boyfriend Aaron and I recently attended a 'friendsgiving' with a beautifully done table and place cards. Take a look at ours:
Here are some other fun ideas:
1. Free printables from Erika at Style Me Green:
2. Mini pumpkins, paper, and straight pins from Crate Paper blog
3. Aunt Jeanne is a collector of pears, this might be a good one for this year. Tutorial from Freutcake here
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I will see you next week when we will be in full blown Christmas mode...look out (it's my favorite holiday).
