Thanksgiving is all about the table—the food, the company and, of course, the place settings! This year, we’re providing some gorgeous inspiration for your Thanksgiving table—as seen on Style Me Pretty Living—complete with marbled enamel plates, stunning hand-lettered leather place cards, and free-flowing florals in soft sunset tones. We contrasted warm fall shades of amber and copper with our signature white and grey hues to create a fresh take on fall that perfectly fits our clean and crisp style. Little entertaining vignettes help complete the look, including a stunning escort card board flanked by a jaw-dropping floral urn, and a seasonally styled bar cart featuring a muted gold sequin cake and lots of fall cocktail essentials! Cheers to a fabulous holiday season!
New season, new cocktail ideas! And this adorable Cider Bar recently featured on Style Me Pretty Living is perfect for fall entertaining. All you need is your favorite apple cider (served hot or cold), a sampling of dark liquors (we chose bourbon and rum), and lots of tasty garnishes—think honey, cinnamon sticks, apples and citrus. We even included some bottled hard cider selections for the less adventurous guest. Put it all together and you’ve got a display as adorable as it is delicious. We’re obsessed!
We have to admit, we’re not exactly fall obsessed like the rest of the world seems to be. Living on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, it’s always hard to say goodbye to all the boating, beaching and beverages of summer. But this burgundy and berry shoot we designed for Elizabeth Anne Designs is definitely helping to cure our summer hangover! Shades of wine and plum cemented the forefront of this quintessential fall scene, as vibrant yellow foliage tied the landscape together from tree to ground. Classic details in the gown and jewelry complemented the traditional calligraphy script that embellished everything from the wax seal place cards to the welcome sign to the adorable mini Pinots Noir gifts. A simply adorned floating mantel placed under a canopy of autumn leaves made for the perfect ceremony setup—a nice contrast to the open air bride and groom portraits taken with the most stunning golden hour glow. Liz Fogarty perfectly captured all the prettiness on the grounds of the scenic Wye River Conference Center. Enjoy!
