Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
My Casual Loves Elegance Thanks Giving
In a few days we anticipate gathering around tables and having a moment of silence and giving Thanks for our blessings.
A vintage cornucopia with fresh cut roses from my garden. Fresh flowers are essential!
Some foliage or branches in the foyer brings some earthiness indoors.
Greeting guests with a simple vintage glass of freshly made apple and kale juice it light yet entices their appetite a bit!
When guests walk in and say Mmmm...the fun begins! Smells of fresh baked cookies and bread in the kitchen brings back memories of past holidays with family and friends...
My collection of vintage wooden chairs...Choose any one you like to bring and set around the table.
Vintage ironstone mixed matched with brown and white transfer ware are some favorites I collect. Grab the stack and follow me!
Large vintage cloth napkins add some lux to our gathering...rolled up and ready to go under this glass cloche.
A warm and comforting soup will be served as the first course. I’ll get the vintage silver soup spoons. I have a surprise for my placement of the spoons for you! Love my vintage paint brushes... SHhhh I’m salvaging from the renovation of our French farm house too!
Ihope you don’t mind...we’re gathering in the library near the cozy fire this evening for our Holiday dinner. Place your chairs where you like, gather around the table get comfy and cozy. Who would like to light the candles...
Last I am Thankful for the warmth of friends like you... Have the most beautiful Thanksgiving ya’ll
