Here we go:

Gap is 35% off with the code EVENT. How are we living without this?

Ann Taylor is 50% off full price styles with the code Summer50. You should at least get this top.

Anthro is an extra 30% off sale items- no code needed. I want this, and now it’s cheap!

West Elm, surprise, surprise, is doing the same sale as Pottery Barn with the code MEGASALE.

Meanwhile, since this is a patriotic weekend, if you want a laugh and you love the Marvel actors in the new Captain America movie, may I recommend watching some of their funny interviews from the press tour. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan (with an emphasis on Sebastian Stan) are THE BEST. And PS- Hawkeye is hilarious. Ok I’m done now.

These Nine West flats are a need not a want.


Thanksgiving Tablescape

I’m a firm believer that the Thanksgiving tablescape really adds to the day. Sure the company and food can be great, but there’s something magical about a well set table. In other news, have I mentioned that Martha Stewart is my spirit animal?

You can obviously go a few different directions with the color scheme, but my parent’s dining room has gold metallic walls, so I like to stick with warm metallics and natural tones. Here are some items I’m thinking about at the moment (not all at once, but some combination of the below). Keep in mind, I’ll be adding flowers and possibly gourds or other natural elements.

Table Linens

I’m working with a large medium stained wooden table, so I usually opt for a runner and placemats instead of a tablecloth. I crocheted a million placemats in fall colors a couple years ago, but I’m always looking for a new runner.


This Nate Berkus table runner from Target is my natural and metallic theme all in one!


A Crate and Barrel Gold Jute table runner is both subtle and flashy at the same time.


A Crate and Barrel Natural table runner would be a great backdrop for fun candle holders and is definitely seasonless.


I like to have different levels of candles on the table. It creates a warm picturesque glow, and allows you to turn down the main lights a little bit.


I have been stalking these Crate and Barrel taper candle holders. They are a great modern take on taper holders.


A few of these little CB2 Rose Gold votive holders would be great scattered around the middle of the table.


These West Elm Mercury Glass tea lights had me at mercury glass.

Crate Hurracaine

We have a couple hurricane candle holders similar to these from Crate and Barrel, and I think they would be great with a natural colored (unscented) pillar candle, and maybe even some dried acorns or fall type things…

One More For the Road


I really love these horn napkin rings from West Elm.

Do you have your tablescape ready to go?
