Kitchen & Dining Room Inspirations for Thanksgiving

“Thanksgiving is an emotional time. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often”

Johnny Carson

You GUYS! I have been both mentally & physically prepping my body, mind & soul for the obscene glutinous journey it is about to embark on this Thanksgiving Weekend. All of my stretchiest of leggings & my flowiest of shirts have been laundered, pressed & packed for the cottage & I’m literally counting down the MILISECONDS until 3:01pm this coming Friday afternoon! The excitement is literally so real. Now… I wanted to do something a TAD bit different on the blog this year to commemorate the holiday, & because Thanksgiving IS heavily centred around food & that infamous big Turkey Dinner – AKA you’ll likely be spending a TON of time in the kitchen & dining room – I thought I’d share a few of my favourite kitchen & dining room inspirations, accompanied by some of my personal kitchen entertaining tips for Thanksgiving!!!

You GUYS…. In case you weren’t following along on Insta over the weekend, one of my very best friends got MARRIED this past Sunday! It seriously could NOT have been a more perfect day – the decor was honestly so fabulously dreamy my iPhone Camera nearly exploded with pure & utter joy at what it had the PLEASURE of being exposed to that day! Also there was lots of love goin’ on, & I suppose that is also pretty great too 😛 Now seeing as how I’m still in somewhat of a “celebratory mood”, & also because tomorrow is the first OFFICIAL day of fall – SO MUCH TO BE HAPPY ABOUT – I thought I’d share this incredibly delicious Fall Cocktail with all of you today! ENJOY! (more…)
