Happy Thanksgiving

When my four year old nephew Gabriel was asked what will he be having on Thanksgiving, he responded “Turkey, corn, mash potatoes…. pie, cake, and cookies…” Then he finished it off with full on enthusiasm… “I’m going to get fat!” Yup we sure are, and we plan on enjoying every bite! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Enjoy your turkey and all the other yummy goodness!

Thanksgiving Favor & Place Card Setting

In the last post I shared a new favorite cookie recipe of mine… Spiced cardamom cookies. I’m going to be using these cookies for my Thanksgiving favors which can also be used as place card settings. Want to see how I packaged them? I’ve been loving all the printed burlap that have become available in fabric stores. As soon as I saw these three printed burlap, I knew I needed […]

Spiced Cardamom Cookies

I have another cookie recipe for you today. Spiced Cardamom Cookies. It’s a Martha Stewart recipe. I don’t always have success with the recipes I come across on her website, but this one was quite impressive. After making and loving the orange zest and cardamom spiced sugar cookies I made for Eid, I wanted to experiment with more cardamom recipes. Today’s cookies though are not sugar cookies. They are more […]

Fall Decorating {Rustic & Natural Elements}

You know that feeling you get when something seems missing? Well, that’s how I felt with my fall slash Thanksgiving vignette. In the previous post I had shared my faux galvanized cake stand. I had mentioned that I had an unintentional metal theme going on in my vignette… galvanized metal. So I couldn’t resist wanting a galvanized cake to stand to use in place of my gold glass stand. Instead […]

I need to start getting ready for fall y’all! Apple picking, pumpkin picking, pie making, pumpkin decorating, home decorating, and candy collecting are always on the list. All of which I have happily shared with you […]

Thanksgiving Vignette

Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of the year. We should be thankful everyday for all the blessings in our lives, but what makes Thanksgiving so special is it’s a day where we all stop to gather with the people that we are so blessed to have in our lives. It just makes the Thanksgiving meal the more special… fighting over the last of the stuffing that’s left […]

Burlap Pumpkin Thanksgiving Favors

Thanksgiving is almost here… and I can’t wait! I can’t wait for the turkey… the stuffing… all the goodies… and of course being with my family! Every year my mom makes Thanksgiving dinner and we all gather at my parents’ house, except last year for the first time, I made the dinner because my mom was out of town. Yup, I sure did! And surprisingly I made one heck of […]

Give Thanks

I love Thanksgiving! There’s the yummy turkey, which, if there’s leftovers, is even yummier the next day. Gotta love those left overs:) Then even better yet, the stuffing! I have to have mine directly from the turkey..it is called stuffing after all! Of course who doesn’t love the desserts after dinner?! Just give me a piece of apple pie and pumpkin pie, and I’m all set! Most importantly, though, is […]
