How to Set a Cozy, Rustic Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving Day is right around the corner. Are you ready?  In the past, I’ve featured my huge table that seats 14 (but we squeeze in 15 or more). This time around, I’m featuring a cozy, rustic Thanksgiving Table. You can take my table setting and multiply it by as many as you want and duplicate […]

Peter Cottontail Easter Tablescape

Creating the tablescape is always my favorite part of planning a party, especially when it’s a party for kids.  Every Easter I try to do something a little different for the grandkids.
