If The Places In The Home kitchen and dining room walls could talk, they would certainly join in a collective chorus of it’s gettin’ busy in here. The cling and clang of china, crystal, stainless, and steel keep thyme with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, bay leaves, oranges, and vanilla doing its smells like the holidays simmering thing on the stove. Suffice it to say, the look, scent, taste, and style of Thanksgiving is home for the holidays.
I could not get happy with the Thanksgiving scheme I originally envisioned for our Thanksgiving dining room holidays on style parade.
Knowing the rule of there is no hard and fast holiday decorating rule, I cleared the canvas and decorated from the heart.
Less is more soon became more mission than motto, and the statement have nothing in your home that does not please, delight, or reflect a sense of you and yours delightfully set the tone, table, and sideboard.
My grandmother’s blue hobnail cake plate, vintage plates, and silver knives found on eBay tap into traditions, memories, and timeless treasures.
Color born from nature is visually captivating, but there is something to say for the dramatic effect of the black and white option.
Birds, family and friends of a feather…
From our family to you and yours, the Places In The Home gang hope y’all enjoy this holiday week.
Count your blessings.
Shop friendly and local when you can!
Stand back and admire your beautiful handiwork. Personal style and Thanksgiving is home for the holidays.
Lift a glass of your favorite beverage in celebration of blessings, joy, traditions old and new. Turkey and dressing traditional times for one is a homemade hamburger with a side of fries new comfort food fest tradition for another.
There is no right or wrong way to set the tone and taste for a day or evening with a party of one, a passel of kinfolk, or tribe of friends who are family in celebration for what and who you are grateful for.
I am grateful for you, my readers who are like family, and wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving.
