Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away, and then we’ll be looking forward to Christmas! To get in the spirit of the season, I set a festive fall/winter holiday table with items I already had on hand mixed in with some new finds from Target.

I wanted to work with gold and silver for most of the decor, but a red runner made a colorful base for everything else to play off of. I love the way the polka dot fabric napkins look with it!

I added candlesticks in two heights, and then picked up several sizes of silver frosted mason jars. I used the smallest jars to hold tealights as intended, but instead of putting candles in the others, I used the larger ones as flower vases.

Holiday Table Setting

The table was set with our everyday silverware and classic white plates. So many of us have those standards on hand, but they felt more special with gold chargers at each seat.

The centerpieces were fun to arrange. I think that white ‘flower’ is in the cabbage family. Plus berries! I always go for the berries this time of year.

All together, the mix of metallics and the candlelight feel perfect for special occasions. I’m looking forward to using the decorations throughout the year for other dinners and holidays, too!

Hey, internet! I miss you. I mean, I’m pretty content getting newborn snuggles and baby smiles over here, but I do miss work (and Pinterest) too.

Calvin and I are sort of getting the hang of this whole breastfeeding thing now, which means more efficient nursing for him and less pain for me. He’s also settling into a routine, and I’m able to get more done. I haven’t been on the computer much, so I haven’t had many interesting links from around the web to share, but I did want to at least pop in with some of the posts that I’ve written elsewhere lately.

Art to Stand On

The past few weeks with a newborn have been a bit of a snooze, sartorially speaking. Luckily I have a cute baby to distract from what I’m wearing, but I’ve been rotating through the same few pairs of pants (these were fantastic until near the end of my pregnancy, and now they’re great again post-baby) and mostly rocking the early nursing days standard of a tank and cardigan. It works, but it’s nice to have a fun new pair of shoes from BucketFeet to switch things up a bit!

The patterns on each of their shoes are designed by artists (painters, graffiti artists, writers, illustrators, tattoo artists, and so on) from all over the world, bringing a little wearable art to your wardrobe. Eleanor is learning how to tie her shoes, so we picked out a lace up pair for her, too.

BucketFeet was launched in 2011 by two strangers who met by chance in Argentina while backpacking. The artists that they collaborate with are based all over the world, but my shoes were designed by Erin Burke, a graphic designer based right here in Chicago! Such a cool connection. Now they have just launched dozens of new styles for the season including mid tops, and brand new holiday low top styles. You can see some of my favorites, below.
