I’m really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. The whole house always smells so wonderful with mingling scents of holiday cuisine filling the air. I am excited to create special memories with friends and family. However, I must admit, my favorite part of the day is decorating the table. I just love creating a beautiful and warm setting to help make my guests feel even more welcome. The gorgeous tones of fall mixed with abundant candlelight combine perfectly to design a dreamy tablescape.

Here are some great images for inspiration.

We all have so much to be thankful for. What are you thankful for this holiday season?


Escort Cards

“What should I do for my escort card table?” This is a reoccurring question that many brides ask. The thing is, this table is an open canvas where you can do whatever you would like. It’s a place where you can setup a traditional row of cards, or do something more unique, like nestle your cards in a bed of grass adorned with pretty ribbons. We have seen some really creative ideas.

This stunning Manzanita branch was surrounded by clouds of puffy white hydrangea and lit with abundant candlelight. A beautiful tailored linen with with crystals scattered on the tabletop. Truly one of my favorites.

Martini Anyone? This next idea is so clever. Over-sized martini glasses with rainbow floral foam and a green spider mum was the main concept for the table. The escort cards looked like a lime slice, wedged right on the rim of the glass. An extremely creative approach, guaranteed to to be a topic of conversation among your guests!

How cute is this? Wheat grass banded with pretty ribbons and decorated Gerber daisies and miniature animated bumblebees. It is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face who takes a stroll to find their name.

You could always line your cards in a row, and place a stunning floral arrangement on the table. It’s a traditional approach, but still gorgeous. Here are some of my personal favorites.
