{Inspiration} Thanksgiving

Ahhh....Thanksgiving. I look forward to this holiday all year long. Fall, food, family, football, fun -- what's not to love? Here are some of my favorite inspiration pictures I've collected over the past few months.

Pumpkin mousse parfaits via The TomKat Studio.

Beautiful tablescape. I LOVE the pops of green using Granny Smith apples via Anders Ruff.

Vintage drink station via Anders Ruff -- I die.

Caramel pears via Fresh. I'm going to attempt to make these for my own Thanksgiving dessert spread. We'll see if they turn out!

Another simple yet stunning tablescape using white pumpkins. I love the natural feel to this table -- very beautiful. Pic via Martha Stewart {of course ;-}

No matter how tired or busy or overwhelmed I feel sometimes, I am beyond GRATEFUL for the gifts God has blessed me with. My family -- all healthy, all safe. A supportive, loving husband and the greatest blessing of my life, my son. My Christian faith. A warm, cozy home to go home to every day and food to put on the table for my family. A great job. This country where I am free to dress the way I please, practice whatever religion I want, marry whomever I like, get an education, vote, etc, etc, etc. GRATEFUL is a gross understatement.


**For more Turkey Day inspiration, take a look at my Give Thanks board on Pinterest.
**I'm working on my own tablescape tonight -- wish me luck as I am totally winging it! Still not sure what I'm doing -- just gonna go with it ;-}


  1. thank you for posting your list of things to be thankful for- it really hit a nerve with me, we all need to make a list, and remember to be grateful day in and day out!!

  2. Thanks, Erin! You're right -- we need to remember this every day {but it is hard ;-}
