This past weekend I put away all of our Halloween decorations and resisted the urge to pull down my MOUNTAIN of Christmas decorations and instead opted for some Turkey-Day style. I have plans to put my Christmas stuff out in a couple of weeks, but this will be festive in the interim :)
McKinney recently got a Trader Joes and I picked up two of their little "seasonal bouquets" and then divided them up among a few mason jars and scattered them throughout the house. I LOVE having fresh flowers and this is a pretty inexpensive way to get several small arrangements.
I put the canvases from our pics last Fall back up along with some of my other favorite pics...
... and this cute turkey from Pier 1.
My favorite area to decorate is the kids' table :)
I picked up the cutest plates EVER (along with the matching cups) last weekend and the kids LOVE them! I think they're so sweet and festive and I know they'll be fun to pull out every November.
I'll probably talk about it more in the next couple of weeks, but one of the things I'm most excited about is our new "Thankful Tree". It's actually an ornament tree from Pier 1, but as soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for this idea.
At dinner, we talk about what we're thankful for and write it on one of the leaves or acorns. At the end of the month we'll be able to look back and talk about all the things we've been thankful for!
That spot behind my stove is pretty bare, and I'm considering making a big turkey the same way I made my back to school apple.
I picked up this sign at HomeGoods a few years ago and it's my favorite!
And one more little arrangement in the bathroom :)
And the whole reason I love decorating and making things special?????
... and I was WAY impressed!!!
Today (and every day!) I'm thankful for these three, their dad and the memories we make on the daily.
So, how about you??? Is Halloween still out at your house? Is the Christmas tree already up? Do tell!
