Happy Marigold Monday to all. It is time to be in the house. Time to get the ball rolling for the upcoming holiday season. I really do enjoy all of the festive decor that goes into dressing up the house. That’s where that art of lifestyling starts igniting. So I like to have a plan and a theme for each room. For example maybe in the dining room it will be Angels. But wait I am really getting ahead of myself. My goodness thanksgiving isn’t even here yet. What am I thinking.  So let’s talk turkey and thanksgiving. I think transition.  How can I bring it all together to celebrate each of the holidays and still tie it all together with ease.  One very important lesson that I have learn is to first and foremost have fun and enjoy.  How do I do that?   A lot of planning but truly keeping it simple with core pieces like beautiful wreaths candle holders baskets etc. I do have a favorite colors too of course orange for the fall.  Let me show you a few pieces for the dining for thanksgiving.  image

Thanksgiving is such a significant time of the year for family that I like to have everything in place so all of us can sit back and have fun.  What about you do you – how do you like to decorate for the holidays?

Fall is such a beautiful time of the year. Mother Nature really likes to show off. And I like to mimic that same theme inside.  I hope you have enjoyed all the colorful pictures.  I welcome any comments or questions at http://www.andwineknot.com or dana2fly@comcast.net
