The holidays are upon us, which means gatherings galore! We are having Thanksgiving at our place for the first time ever, and I am so very excited, because I simply love hosting. Zach and I have lots of wonderful things in store, and the emphasis is going to be something low-key, yet meaningful, and lovingly put together. Since he also has a lot of food allergies, we’re focusing on making a menu that is “Zach-friendly” (as we call it), while at the same time, putting together an atmosphere that is warm, cozy and inviting.
While planning for our Thanksgiving, I can’t help but recall the gatherings that I have been a part of this year. This year has definitely been the year of Friendsgivings, and I don’t blame anyone – who wouldn’t want to put on a beautiful gathering and bring people together for a shared meal? One of my favorites this year was definitely the one put on by Lonny Magazine x Shelter Co, which I was invited to by my friend Alicia. I’ve been following Lonny since they began and obsessing over Shelter Co’s tents, so it a huge treat for me to see this all in person. It was such a magical day that I’ve been keeping the feel of this event on the back of my mind, while we plan our own little Thanksgiving get-together. We have some fun projects in the works that will result from our little gathering too, which we’re very excited to share. In the meantime, we can just soak in the loveliness from this day. <3
The twinkling lights, tents and long table set up outside in the wild made for such a magical affair.
Some of my favorite elements for the table were their pomegranate decor, enamelware plates and bowls, and menu designs!
A craft tent was also put up, where we all made fun feather hangings to take home.
Salt Point provided the delicious meats (I still think about that yummy turkey chili)
And of course, one had to end the night with some cast iron apple pie, and a bonfire.
Here’s to hoping your holiday gatherings this year are inspired and wonderful!
