Hello everyone! Yes, I'm still alive and kickin'... Just got real crazy over here but it will turn around soon (I hope).
Thought I'd share this year's Thanksgiving decor, starting with my mantle. (Don't mind the lights, it's for the kiddos.)
The hubs and I managed to dig out some of my past T-day decor so I gathered all of my bright foliage and did this!
I don't know if you can see it, but the centerpiece is a purple cornucopia. I just layered everything that I owned and I think it worked out great. What do you think?
I didn't have anywhere to put my husband's Mt. Bachelor print, so I "semi" covered it up with this suede-like pretty placemat I got from Walmart last year. The candles were from Target back in 2007, while the candlesticks were from Ross last January.
On each end, I placed a framed picture that means a lot to me. This one is of me and my first daughter (Nov '96), L-Infinity when I married my husband Mr. Man back in October 1996.
This one is of my Dad's; it's the only clear picture I have of him. Both pictures anchor the mantle to complete my gratitude. Now I have three children, married 13 years, and just plain happy and grateful. :-D
Ok, onto the table...
"Color ME Grateful"
Different shades of Fall decor
So you seen my "ORANGE" side, but now here's the more "EARTHY (browns, burgundy, moss greens) side of FALL... I chose all the dishes I own that can compliment my tablecloth (Kohl's; 80% off); runner (Kohl's; 65% off). Yes, again, I regale you with my "Pretty, Inexpensive" signature of a tablescape! I accented it with some orange to pick up the mantle and the orange in the runner.
I layered my Canopy "Golden Wheat", ONLY Gibson "Wheat", Food Network "Red Currant" plates and Thomson "Bianca" bowl to make my placesetting. I found my Target find napkins and just placed one inside each bowl to "pretty it up".
(ooopppsss... I forgot to place a napkin on that placesetting. Pretend you didn't notice, ok? Thanks!)
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!
