I have always loved celebrating Mother’s Day and pampering my mom with gifts but since becoming a of mommy, I realize it is so much more than the that.  Sharing this day with my mom, my sister and all the other mom’s in our family allows me to take in how blessed we are to have each other and have the privilege to raise our mini’s!  Trust me, not everyday is sunshiny, but I would not trade it for the world!  So, instead of focusing on any big extravagant gifts, make this day about each other and find something unique to share with one another.  Here are some of my favorites that I am loving right now and your mom might too!

Thanksgiving Table Design….

Be Thankful

15 days away….are you ready to decorate your Thanksgiving table?  In our family we rotate homes for the holidays and this year, I get to host everyone for Thanksgiving and I am so excited about it.  Not only is Thanksgiving my favorite holiday, I love all the decorations that go along with it.  The menu is really important to me, but as important is how my table is going to look because we tend to spend the entire day around the table.  The “I’m Thankful For…” placemat is one of my favorites and it is a DIY project, so you can design it to coordinate with your table design.  For the last 7-8 years we have had a tradition of “I’m Thankful For…” round table with the family, we all have so much to be thankful for and this is our way to let the family share our blessings with each other.   This placemat will be such a great addition to our table so that we can write our thoughts down before sharing them with everyone.   Here are some of my other favorites for this year….what will your Thanksgiving table look like?

Have fun with your Thanksgiving table…this is where your family traditions and memories happen.  Here are some beautiful tablescapes of all different styles.

Just Say Cheese…

 
If  I could plan any party or sit at a restaurant and just eat cheese and drink wine, I would!  The simplicity of cheese is truly an amazing thing and for me it could be an entire meal or the base of a fantastic party.  Why not get a group of people together and let everyone bring their favorite cheese and bottle of wine and I bet you will see everyones personality through the cheese they bring.  All you will need are some great platters, cool spreaders, cheese label, these really creative cheese coasters and your favorite local cheese shop.  Pour yourself a big glass of wine and get started!
