I have a wonderful friend, MJ, who loves decor and entertaining as much as I do! Last week I was excited to be invited over for Friendsgiving. I love going over to her home. It's like a little French boutique. Every time I go over to her house I always find something new. I just couldn't wait to see what she had done for this special night! I wanted to share with you some of her beautiful decor.
I am so envious that she just found this beautiful pheasant at a local antique store. Isn't this bird spectacular? I mean how lucky was she to find this peace? Anyway, MJ, added a few sprigs of seeded eucalyptus and some dusty miller and it's absolutely gorgeous.
Another centerpiece I'm lusting over! MJ usually keeps real stag horns in a beautiful bowl on her coffee table. Here she has simply layered them with the same eucalyptus and dust miller. When I asked her where I could find some she replied that they were found at her ranch.
At a small round table where you might not have room to place the silverware, stick them in a mason jar that matches the water glasses. The picture of casual elegance.
Don't you just love how simple but elegant this table is? She makes it look so easy! I love how she alternates the napkins. With larger parties you might not have the enough matching place settings but MJ shows you how to make it work! I love it. I think it adds more visual interest. And the cute chargers? I think they have them at Michael's! Linen tablecloths were found at Marshalls. Beautiful napkin rings are Juliska.
I think my favorite aspect of MJ sense of style is her ability to mix expensive pieces with less expensive pieces so you don't have to break the bank to entertain. With beautiful crystal goblets next to quaint mason jars it look fantastic. And the inexpensive chargers look great next to the fine linen napkins with Juliska napkin rings.
Well that's it for now my friends. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy your family and friends and remember...
