I just love the soft color palette that comes with Thanksgiving decor. I really embraced sunflowers, large pumpkins, and acorns this year. Here’s a look at what my house looks like around Thanksgiving.
My family will spend this Thanksgiving with other generations of our family eating way too much, reminiscing, and generally being thankful for every single person around our table and in our hearts. It’s a holiday that’s near and dear to my heart because it’s not about gifts and material things. It’s about remembering NOT to take our daily lives for granted. It’s about being thankful for things like being loved, friendship, the roof over our heads, and the food on our table. I am looking forward to playing board games and pinochle, making new memories, and eating Mincemeat Pie.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, consider hosting a Friendsgiving. It’s a great excuse to get together with friends and test out your TGivs recipes before the BIG day. Plus, for some people their friends are their family. I wanted to share my have tips and tricks to make it the best holiday yet!
Tomorrow I’ll be on Good Day Sacramento during the 9 and 10am hours talking all about TGivs. The segment will include tips and tricks to streamline the already tough day with make ahead dishes and their recipes plus a few special touches to make everything more meaningful. The second segment will be all about keeping the kids busy with crafts that area part of the decor.
There’s a crispness in the air and the leaves are starting to turn vibrant colors. That can only mean one thing… Thanksgiving is coming! I think it’s important to really feel the sentiment of the season. Explain it to your kids and start spreading that attitude of gratitude. Today’s Pinterest round-up includes some great projects and ideas to get your thankful juices flowing.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
I hadn’t shared my Thanksgiving decor with you today, so I thought I’d share a sneak peek for you on this day of thanks!
My Thanksgiving decor style is pretty simple and predictable. I remove anything scary from Halloween and add a few proud Turkeys here and there. Plenty of gourds and fall leaves make the house feel cozy and really express the sentiment of the season. But, don’t be mad…I have a confession. Yesterday my daughter asked if we could decorate for Christmas and I said yes. I’ve never done that before, but she was so excited….I just had to oblige. I’m not hosting Thanksgiving so I decided no harm no fowl (pun and incorrect spelling intended.). Anyway, I hope you have a great day with friends and family. I hope you count your blessings and enjoy all the little moments that make the day special. I am thankful for all of you!
I’ve been married for 8 years and have lived many places other than my parent’s house. But, if you hit “home” on my phone, you’d call my parents. That’s the truth. Following the logic above I feel like I have a few homes: friends houses, my in-laws house, my own house, and my parents house. That truly makes me blessed. I try to remember that daily, how lucky I am to have people that I can call in my time of need or just because I want to talk. I try not to take that for granted. Some days it’s easier than others.
