You guys are the best! Thanks so much for all of the sweet comments about my new gallery wall yesterday! Big smiles over here : )
In case you haven't noticed, it's November.
Whaaaaaaaat? I know, I know. Wasn't it just Memorial Day?
But I can't lie... I've already got the itch. The holiday itch! I'm ready for it- the food, the crafts, the gifts, the decorating, the parties, the food... did I mention the food? I'm excited for it all! First up? Thanksgiving. And a very special one over at the Ten June household- it's the first year that David and I will be hosting the family at our house! Big stuff.
Last year, we opted out of the traditional holiday celebrations and took a little road trip out west to Seattle, Vancouver, the Oregon coast/Redwood Forest/northern California/wine country and San Francisco. It was a fabulous time, but we're excited to take the traditional route this year.
Needless to say, I've been searching, bookmarking, pinning and ripping out pages of magazines in order to gather all kinds of Thanksgiving inspiration. And even though I didn't host Thanksgiving last year, I'm even looking back to my own blog for inspiration! While I was out of town last Thanksgiving, I had five amazing bloggers post on some of their favorite Thanksgiving things. I've been looking back on them and just had to reshare with you guys- their stuff is incredible!
Courtney from A Thoughtful Place set up an adorable Thanksgiving entryway (and shares a free Thanksgiving printable!) which you can see here.
Cassie from Hi Sugarplum crafted some DIY burlap vases similar to the Ballard Design version... but a heck of a lot cheaper! You can read her tutorial here.
Ashley from Lemon and Lavender shared some Thanksgiving tablescape inspiration and an amazing recipe for chocolate pumpkin bread (from her grandma!) that you can read here.
And my sweet friend Lauren, who no longer has a blog, shared another gorgeous, rustic tablescape that you can learn to create on your own here.
See what I mean? These ladies delivered when it comes to Thanksgiving inspiration! Be sure to head over and check out each of these guest posts and each of their blogs... be prepared to be amazed : )
Where are you pulling Thanksgiving inspiration from?
