Thanksgiving at My Home....

We had such a great Holiday weekend and 3 of us helped decorate while my guy did all the cooking...yes, ALL. He is such a great cook & wanted to do it all himself. I'm so thankful for him. 
 
I decided to incorporate some GOLD into this Holiday....and I knew the tablecloth we bought was way too stark white. 

So, we PAINTED gold dots all over it & it made the table look so much more interesting...what do you think?

How was your Thanksgiving??


Notice the Gold chisel glassware from ZGallerie?? They're amazing!

I am loving the glassware myself. Think it may be on my Xmas list! And I love the gold dots -- did you use a pencil eraser?

Jen of MadeByGirl said...

COURTNEYOUTLOUD: thx! No, I actually used the bottom of a wooden handled sponge brush. It was perfectly flat so it worked out well.
