Whats on my Thanksgiving Table.......

SO here is a little personal blog sharing about my small Thanksgiving fete!
 I had to work on my last wedding which was on the day after Thanksgiving so a small and sweet brunch with a few family member suited us.

Custom made table runner 

Something fun for the kids table, keeps them occupied and gets them to finish their plate quickly!

The first time we have ever raised and harvested our own farm organic fed turkey! SUCCESS

Peonies and succulents need.... I say more?

Dipping the feather suede in gold = bliss

Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece Tips& DIY Ideas !

So I thought I would share with you some quick and easy tips to decorate the table. Here are some of my favorite easy ways to celebrate Thanksgiving at your table with your family and loved ones! 

After all the fact that you are "all together" gathered for a meal is that in itself much to be thankful for! ♥So Make it a Celebration♥

Here are a few of my ideas:

For the DIYer:

Why not take advantage of this Golden opportunity ! Excuse the pun and gild them use gold to celebrate!

You can also glitter paint flame-less candles for sparkle and ambiance! (safe for the kids at the table too!)

Cloches and Dome can showcase your favorite things about the season !

In my case I wanted to let all the glorious food aroma surround the table so I opted on using wood flowers and pine roses .
Very Fall like still since I'm not a huge fan of the traditional fall floral color pallet.

Using burlap as a table cloth adds a  nice neutral pallet.

Put it all together!

Just add gravy!!

 Here is a great way to keep it fun for dessert for the kids and eye candy for the grown ups!

 If your not the crafty type take some pretty pumpkins and just drape them with your favorite gold ribbon or fancy trim.

Hope I got some of yours wheels turning and that you all create beautiful tables for those precious people you are so thankful to have in your lives! -ENJOY

Spot light on my Amazing Intern: Jessica Adams♥

This Girl!

Well more like young lady!

     Whom I have developed quite an attachment to! Not because she keeps up with me at the flower mart while pushing the cart or because she knows exactly where my keys are when I don't. Or because she is always willing to help and learn from me whatever little tips and advice I can emit to her ,but because she is lovely, sweet, kind and just plain selfless♥

She will be leaving me for awhile at the end of August to go to Bible College and I could not be more excited for her and also a bit sad because.... well I love her and I will miss her !

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.- Jeremiah 29:11
