Holliday created this beautiful table setting with jewel tones. If you are up on current trends with fashion, then you know that jewel tones are in right now. This inspired Holliday to create this beautiful jewel-toned table setting. She used her favorite Royal Crown Derby salad plates which are absolutely beautiful. I really love how Holliday changed the direction of the placemats. What a great idea! The colors rich colors in this tablescape are warm and inviting. I’d be quite happy to sit and dine at this lovely table. Click here to see the entire post: Jewel-Toned Thanksgiving Table
Holliday shared some Easy and Elegant Christmas Decorating Ideas to inspire you as we get closer to the Christmas season. I really like how she uses the reindeer and different textures and warm earth tones. Very simple, yet elegant.

Lory shares her Roasted Brussel Sprout and Butternut Squash Salad with Crispy Prosciutto. This salad is the perfect compliment to any holiday meal. It’s super easy to make and can be eaten as a side or as an entire meal. It’s savory, sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy, and tangy all at once. I can’t wait to try this recipe! Head over to Lory’s blog to see the full recipe and details.
Lory’s has a knack for coming up with some really fun ideas for entertaining. She created this cute Friendsgiving meal where you don’t have to do any of the cooking! The table is easy to assemble and she uses Chick-fil-A chicken to make this fun dinner! To see how Lory pulled this off and all the details click here: A Chick-Fil-A Friendsgiving and Tablescape

I was inspired to create this rustic tablescape after I found these white ceramic turkeys. I used faux greenery to create a garland in the middle of the table used neutral colors to create a simple, rustic table. Click here to see more details and sources on this Rustic Thanksgiving Tablescape.
This past week on the blog I shared my Fall Home Tour. Click here to read more about how I used the blue colors throughout my home mixed with shades of orange. You’ll love the pumpkin towers I made for my front porch and the simple orange wreaths on my barstools that were so easy to make. See more photos and details on the link above.
