A Holiday Table

When you own your own business, super short weeks like this are stressful rather than exciting. I cannot believe Thanksgiving is here and I have to leave tomorrow! I am so not ready! Good thing I’m not hosting, and leaving that task to my mom who always does it beautifully.  As inspiration for those who may be hosting, here are some gorgeous holiday table images to get you moving this morning!

This American Harvest table from Country Living is my favorite this year- love the mismatched vintage silverware, the deep blues and feathers!

Off for two installations today (just in the nick of time for the holiday) then time to bake, pack and do one final yoga class to keep me zen during crazy family time. :)
