Thanksgiving inspiration

Nick's parents are coming here for Thanksgiving, and I'm SOOO excited!!!  His parents are really the most wonderful in-laws a girl could ever ask for.  They've truly been nothing but a blessing from the beginning, and I'm so excited that we'll get to spend several days with them in just a week and a half!! :)  That being said, I need to get my butt in gear and start buying all the food (because we're also hosting my parents, my Poppi, and my sister and brother-in-law, meaning 9 people total!), AND I need to start making the house look festive!!  I know I don't "have" to do this- they'd be so sweet and appreciative even if the house was all cluttered up (as it usually is).  But I would like to add some fun little touches to make it feel "home-y" and special.  Here's one of my FAVORITE Thanksgiving ideas from Friday's child:
How adorable is that???  She used it for a fall baby shower :)  I could never have come up with something so cute!

I also would like to paint our huge living room area before they come, and do some sort of painting or staining to our table before they get here next Wednesday... not to mention about a hundred other little projects I'd like to attempt before then :)  So we'll see what actually gets done!!  Oh, and I'm also working on homemade Christmas cards this year- about 50 of them.  Geez louise.  Why did I not start some of this back in July??? 


  1. The garland is adorable - I love it! Have a fabulous time hosting Thanksgiving! How fun!!

  2. At least you Christmas card display wreath is already done!!! :) Can't wait to see pictures of your garland/the new paint job in the living room/ and these homemade Christmas cards!!!
