Happy Thanksgiving!

I thought I would show you how I decorated my home for the Thanksgiving holiday. My sister, Jenny, is hosting Thanksgiving this year and and I look forward to eating lots of delicious food and spending time with my family (30+ members!). The Weatherman is forecasting a beautiful day. Enjoy!

Front Entryway
I love to use preserved/dried leaves
Formal Living Room fireplace mantel. I used some of my tags to create a banner.
Dining Room

Kitchen bar area. Please ignore the windows! I haven't had time to work on window treatments!

Family Room fireplace mantel. I used some more of my vintage style tags to create the banner.
Buffet in the Kitchen/Family Room area

Antique washstand in the Family Room

Tray on top of the coffee table (an antique steamer trunk) in the Family Room

Display on top of the TV. The crystal-look filler (with red candle) is from Michaels.

I plan to put up Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving, no shopping for me (I can't stand the crowds!). Try not to eat too much and have a fabulous "turkey day"!

Your house is gorgeous (as I knew it would be) but I have to say, I did expect more...well, pink! LOL. You like alot of the same colors that I do. And I LOVE your black door. Thinking about painting ours black. It all looks lovely.

Happy T. Day.

ok, I am from Brazil and we do not do all this decorating according to season and holidays like here in America. So my question is: where do you put all this stuff when you need to take it all down and put away? :) BTW, Merry Christmas, Julie!!! :)
