Holiday Table



We broke tradition this year
and 
had Thanksgiving in San Diego
hosted by my gorgeous girl and her husband.
Our family has gone through changes
and
 it just felt right for change.

Ellis sent me some inspiration pictures
and 
I packed my styling bags.

Our Thanksgiving table 
ended up to be my very favorite 
Tablescape ever!




The table styling was definitely a communal effort.
Ellis provided the fabulous venue and styling direction.

Megan, our newest, wonderful addition to the family this year
in her marriage to Hunter
was a total sweetheart
and 
let us borrow her brand new wedding pretties 
from Anthropologie!
(The pictures from their stunning wedding are back
and
 I will be sharing!!)

I  brought down up my favorite hammered charges to complete the place settings.




I wove the  gorgeous pieces together with pampas grass down the center of
the farm table.

Pears and pomegranates mixed in with cut roses of the palest shades
to accent the dishes and the glassware.




For the centerpiece I picked up a few new gold pieces from
Target's Hearth and Hand 
and 
Opal House lines.

The flowers in the center were one of my favorite parts!

Since I was traveling by car with the flowers
I bought a large orchid plant from Trader Joe's
and simply cut the flowers 
and arranged them in the center of the candelabra.
For even more impact I added cut roses in similar shades.




For our beautiful dinner I wore my dress from Beholden
several years ago
layered over a fitted denim shirt
with suede block heeled shoes.




A few more day time shots to see how all of the pieces pulled together
for 
a super fresh and luxurious take on a 
Family Thanksgiving!








Oh the food!!




My daughter Ellis truly out did herself
with all of her delicious, gourmet dishes!!




I t was definitely a magical, memorable, precious evening!




As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  5. On wedding day, I had a complimentary attendant, who was helpful in getting my husband and myself champagne, and she also made sure that we were eating. I gave my heartfelt appreciation to the staff at wedding venues NYC for their tremendous effort in making our day the most special day of our lives.
