so much to be thankful for!

Posted on November 19, 2014 by 6 | 1 Comment

Happy Wednesday Parish Friends! It's been a while since I have written a post, so I thought I would drop into today to say hello!! The Holidays are fast approaching and I will be the first one to admit... I am not ready whatsoever!! How are we already halfway through November and Thanksgiving is NEXT week... what?!? I have honestly forgotten about Thanksgiving a little bit because we are already in full Christmas mode over here at PARISH and AGID with our Christmas music playing and our Monterey Pine candles burning all day every day... which I love!! But, we do realize that Thanksgiving is next week and we have oh so much to be thankful for!! So today, I wanted to share a little Thanksgiving inspiration with everyone... I personally don't have to do any hosting for the Holidays because my husband and I will be spending time with our families who will be doing all the hosting! Our contribution is bringing an appetizer to Thanksgiving lunch... (I will share what I am brining later in the post! :) ) but for those of you that are I hope this gives you some ideas and inspiration!! 47a933a99ba688bba66673cd2c1aa3d7

I love this Thanksgiving inspired tablescape which uses pumpkins in muted colors and grapevine to make the perfect understated but also elegant arrangement! If I were hosting my family this would be the look I would try to imitate!


How adorable is this "handmade napkin ring" that uses acorns and twine!?


I am OBSESSED with the idea of using Gold Leaf Place Cards at the table! Now... if I only had that pretty handwriting I would be set!!


I found this on Pinterest and I thought it was the sweetest idea... whether you are spending time with your family or friends it is always important to remember the reason of this wonderful Holiday!!


I will be making this, Cranberry and Pecan Brie En Croute, that is absolutely fabulous! It is melt in your mouth good! And I hope that everyone else enjoys it as well!

And on a different note, I am beyond excited to be able to go home and see my family over Thanksgiving in Mobile... and I have to say, I am most excited about seeing my precious little nephew!! I think that he and I need to make this football turkey together.... because he is OBSESSED with football and it would be such a fun thing for us to do together!!


I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving spending quality time with family and friends and remembering that we do have so much to be thankful for!!

Check back with us next week to hear all the details about our Moving Sale and Kristin Blakeney Trunk Show that we will be having the week after Thanksgiving!!

Have a great rest of the week!

I love those “Thankful” placemats! We always take turns sharing with everyone what we are thankful for, it would be great to have it written down first.

Thank you for linking to my last minute Thanksgiving place card round-up. Have a Happy Thanksgiving relaxing and not-hosting!
