Giving Thanks in Style

Thanksgiving is just two short days away and if you're in need of some last minute decorating ideas, I've pulled together some inspiration photos that are simple and festive. I especially love the canned pumpkin  vases in image #2, the metallic gold mini-pumpkins in image #6 and the clever leftover take-home boxes in image #9! My sister is hosting Thanksgiving this year and I'm looking forward to a relaxing day with my family, lots of delicious food, good wine and a chance to reflect on all of the blessings God has given me. What are your plans this year?
