What a great weekend!

I had an absolutely wonderful weekend...I hope everyone else did as well.

First of all, I didn't have to go to work on Wednesday, so it was nice to spend an extra day preparing for Thanksgiving. I managed to figure out my tablescape, which is usually done at the last minute.

I made these napkin rings out of twine and feathers

and I created this centerpiece out of gourds spray painted white and some heirloom silver pieces.

I added a bunch of candles in various heights and shapes,

and it was a very pretty setting. I was satisfied, anyways.

Thanksgiving Day was great. We always have family over. This year, we invited my uncle and 3 cousins because my aunt is still in the hospital after having two strokes earlier this fall. We also had my best friend/cousin and her dad over.

I have to say, it's very satisfying to have boys at Thanksgiving dinner because they are so appreciative of food. They raved about my pies, which are good, but not THAT good. If you need a confidence boost, I suggest making dinner for 3 men who have no idea how to cook.

The rest of my weekend flew by. I'm kind of sad to have to be back at work today, but there are only about 3 weeks until the beginning of my Christmas vacation. Yay!


  1. I love your table Michelle! The white and silver are perfect!! Have a great week:)

  2. Great napkin rings! My son is only 9, but already he's making it hard to keep food stocked for very long.

  3. Love the color scheme! How amazing is white spray paint?! You did a fabulous job and glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday!


  4. Love the feather detail! That makes me want to try doing something similar as gift wrapping for Christmas.

  5. Wow, you did an amazing job of your Thanksgiving table setting - I love the white centre piece with the candles. I'm counting down to holidays too! xx

  6. Your table is stunning! I hope your aunt recovers quickly. It sounds like you made it a beautiful day for everyone you hosted.


I love reading your comments...they're often the highlight of my day!
