A few Thanksgiving centerpieces to mull over as you plan for the special day… whether your style is muted & soft or blazing with color there are so many brilliant ideas out there to give you inspiration. I’ve collected a few of my favorites from design experts around the web: BHG, Party Perfect Blog, HGTV and Cathie Filian.

Before you begin… choose your theme wisely. Will this holiday be traditional & cozy or modern & eye-catching? Choosing your color palate can be most challenging but incorporating just one ‘wow!’ color can make a huge difference. Bright pastels like orange, pink and green give your table a pop and are all over the place this season.

By the way, isn’t this idea of incorporating photos into a centerpiece runner a neat tribute to family?

Where ever your inspiration comes from your guests will surely appreciate the extra effort! Continue reading

Before & After: Mirror, Mirror On the Wall…

Before & After: Mirror

What a fun DIY project! Mirrors are both beautiful and practical and they belong in every room of the house — they open up space, provide extra light and reflect back all of that decorating love you’ve worked so hard on. My favorite mirrors are not the square, wood framed ones but instead are the unique mirrors that both compliment a room and might even serve as the statement piece.

Beautiful and stunning mirrors don’t have to come at a high cost — search around your own home for a mirror that has lost it’s character or find one in need of a good refashion at a local thrift store, and then let your imagination take off…

A Vintage Turquoise & Orange Thanksgiving

Vintage Thanksgiving in Teal & Orange

This Vintage Tablescape was created by Laurie Cinotto for a beautiful wedding featured on Once Wed and spotlighted on Hostess with the Mostess last year… but I’ve always had it in the back of my mind as the PERFECT Thanksgiving spread.

The color scheme is fantastic — and the delicate vintage feel is perfect for this fall. This tablescape would be easy to recreate with richly patterned fabric remnants, lace scraps and orange berry swags from your local craft store. Matching scrapbooking paper with filigree detail for favor boxes and placemats… as well as an assortment of various china pieces from thrift stores mixed in with your traditional place settings. It’s so lovely!

Homemade boxes filled with your favorite dessert make unique favors. For something simple and personal, cover match boxes in scrapbooking paper, lace and buttons and fill with a short note on why you’re thankful for that person.

Beautiful details: Napkins tied with lace and berries, votives lined in paper, colored tumblers that match your theme and single flower blooms scattered about. Continue reading
