It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas on King street… but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it’s all about the food- leaving lots of room for creativity and kitchen experimentation.The food may be the main event but today I am talking decor and ambiance. This time of year is all about warm, cozy and nostalgia.
It’s the perfect time to embrace natural elements like dried wildflowers and wheat, colorful autumn leaves, pinecones, sage, and sprigs of rosemary. Squash, gourds, pears, persimmons, and pumpkins can help make an effortless and festive centerpiece. A little bit of gold and bronze accents can go a long way especially during the holiday season. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite pieces to add a little bit more festiveness to your spread.
