Thanksgiving

Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week (for the US, at least!). I've been storing up some Thanksgiving inspiration - mostly courtesy of Eddie Ross, because that man certainly knows his way around a place setting! I spent Sunday hunting for deals for my friend Laura's Thanksgiving table, and I can't wait to share it with you after the big day! Here's where I was getting some ideas:

Color palette (whites and metallics) from Dwell Studio, seen on Sincerely, Cecelia.

Layers, layers, layers (and the unexpected!) from Eddie Ross:

And finally, this sweet name card idea (mine will be white painted pumpkins) from Eddie Ross in Lonny.

I'll pull together a little design board of what Laura's table will look like.

In the meanwhile, for anyone hosting the big feast this year, Michelle from Design Evolution has a fabulous free download to help you plan your menu and make the grocery trip a breeze. Plus, it's pretty! Here's a preview, but visit her site to download it!

And after Thanksgiving, my countdown to Christmas begins! Although I already have decor and parties on the brain thanks to my new holiday help services. Happy as clam - it's my favorite time of year! Are you planning a Thanksgiving or holiday gathering this year? What's your decor concept?
