Just like that Fall is about to end, because we all know at the crack of dawn, post your Thanksgiving meal, Christmas (or Hanukkah) decor will swoop in. Although some of you started very early this year. Regardless, I love seeing how festive everyone is this season! It's been quite the season! We began creeping in the Fall early September,Bridal Shower, Bachelorette, October, last minute wedding things- flew to New Orleans- Celebrated Halloween there with a welcome cocktail, on the second of November came the Wedding- Flew back to then go to Hawaii and then BACK HOME! Just in time for Thanksgiving!!! You can only imagine the weird mixed of excitement and exhaustion but oh so worth it!!! So much content to cover, but for now let's enjoy the rest of the year with holiday content, shall we?
Per usual we like to gather all and any new recipes that would be great for your holiday feast along with some decor inspo.
We always recommend you visit your local:
Target, HomeGoods, Dollar Tree, Pier One Michael's, Aldi, Trader Joe's, Wholesale FLorist's and anything in between that can carry all the festive gear needed.
Last year's set up was a blast, you can see some of it via our "Fall" instagram highlight but we did take these photos just for you for this year's feature. A variety of our favorite sides and of course our mother's Turkey was made, not once, but twice! We are blessed with a large Cuban family, and we don't mind the left overs! lol That said we had many place settings to set. All of our plates are from the dollar store and the chargers we mixed a variety from Pier one. It was pretty cool to see who wanted to sit where based on design. lol Check it out below!
