This year I am having Thanksgiving at my Brother and Sister-in-law’s house. They’ve divvied out the food assignments and Liz put me in charge of the table. So that means rounding up the table, chairs, table linens, china, silverware, and then doing the flowers. I am taking inspiration from this Ariella Chezar photo of bright pinks and oranges. (I love that book BTW if you are interested in flowers at all you should get it.)
I also write for Babble.com. Here are my posts this week.
Perfect gift for a friend who is having their second (or more) child.
Have you seen the kid clothes at Forever 21? SO CUTE!
I wonder if it is bad manners to unbutton your pants mid meal to make room for more?
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. We’re going down to Palo Alto tomorrow afternoon to eat with my grandmother and my aunt. I had to hit up three different grocery stores this morning. I LOVE staying in the city during the holidays because it empties up. There are parking spots galore, and everyone relaxes. I’ll be around the next few days so I’ll probably still be posting.
p.s.: If you can get out to the stores today, most of them do their markdowns for Friday today. Hooray for Christmas shopping!

I saw these “Thankful” cards at Paper Source and thought they were a fantastic idea. Have the guests fill them out and read them at the table over turkey.
When Fall occurs all I can think of are the “real” holidays. I enjoy the Fall for the weather and the foods but that is about it. While Halloween is a perfectly acceptable holiday I can hardly wait until it is over so I can start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ooh ooh I can’t wait.
