Friday Finds: Our Favorite Holiday Planning Links


Thanksgiving is a mere two weeks away and to inspire some unique holiday recipes and decor ideas I looked to some of my favorite blogs. Here are some of my favorite finds from this week:

1. Apple pie is a classic dessert and this year Joy The Baker and her incredible step-by-step pictorial that even includes how to make your own crust!

2. The Make and Takes is a great place to find DIY crafts and they covered the kiddos for Thanksgiving with their cute Paper Tepee Decorations.

3. A gorgeous centerpiece can really tie a room together and The Idea Room shows you how to make your own complete with pumpkins, candles, and spanish moss.

4. As for wines, Jing Ai shares some of her favorite wines and how they can be paired with some of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes.

  • As always, I really enjoyed the links you shared. I especially liked the gorgeous Thanksgiving Centrepiece. It’s so easy to make as well! This week I shared a really easy but still impressive dish for entertaining – Apricot Almond Chicken. Thank you for hosting.
