5 on Friday


Happy Friday ya'll! Don't be jealous or anything but I'm leaving work early, packing the car and headed down to the beach for a girls weekend with my college roommate (and most recently Maid of Honor) Heather -so today hopefully won't go by too slowly!  Her and her hubby live by the beach and run a super cute restaurant down there and since they may...or may not.. :) be actively trying to expand their family in the near near future- we are getting in some wine time ladies!

Since this is the last Friday before Thanksgiving I want to sort of center it around the table with some place setting ideas that I love. Seems appropriate right? Seth & I do Thanksgiving with his family every year (since we first met) because his family has all the cooks! On the flip-side, we do a big annual Christmas eve dinner/party with my family. This year I'm in charge of some appetizers so ANY suggestions are welcome! As usual I'm linking up with April at A. Liz Adventures, Natasha with Hello Happiness, Darci at The Good Life Blog and Christina with Carolina Charm so head over and check them out. Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!





Simple touches like painted pine cones & I love gold!



Basically I'm in love with these plates!!




Pumpkins= you cannot go wrong and look at the sequin detail!



cornucopia theme!





We actually did this two years ago and made everyone write what they were thankful for on a leaf,
then we hung all the leaves from thin tree branches we collected and spray painted
with gold glitter. It makes a gorgeous centerpiece!



Also, I wanted to throw in a shout out! One of my friends from high school has started a new blog to document the goings on of her family and brand new baby boy! I believe she was nervous at first but it just went live and it looks great- if you have some time, head over and show her some love!
