Sometimes We Always Manage….

As Thanksgiving approaches, our thoughts and memories can become flush with the remembrance of family, friends and food. Year after year, we seem to assemble the same group of family and friends, in a warm home filled with the familiar smell of pecan pie, mashed potatoes, stuffing and other humid aromas.

Somehow, we manage to make the Thanksgiving scene the same. Sometimes the people change - elders pass, and new babies arrive - and sometimes the locations change, but we always re-create the same scene. You know you will catch a glimpse of someone’s fingers glistening with turkey grease. You know someone will twirl and unfurl the linen tablecloth which only emerges once a year.

Thanksgiving is like a genetic trait, handed down from generation to generation. This year, as you're enjoying the sights, sounds and aromas of Thanksgiving, please know I am deeply thankful for the traditions we continue to share!

Happy Thanksgiving!

3 Holiday Decorating Trends


Are you ready for the holidays? There's something special about a home spruced up with holiday decorations. The holidays come with a lot of traditions. How do you decorate? Do you use family heirlooms or keep things fresh every year? If you want to mix some new ideas with the old, here are a few of this year's trends.

Frosty & Minty

Bring that cool wintery weather inside with frosted glass ornaments and decor. Add a mint green touch to add a sense of pine. If you're looking for a new look for your wall, create a wreath using silver and seafoam Christmas ball ornaments.

Metallic Luxury

Want a modern and luxurious look this year? Add gold, silver, and luxury metals to your holiday scene. Metallic-looking ornaments will glisten and sparkle on your tree. You can carry them off the tree to create a stunning tablescape or mantel.

A Pop of Purple

​Tie into the Pantone color of the year, “Very Peri.” It's an excellent color to accent your beautiful green Christmas tree. Purple hues blend well with your home's favorite silver and gold decorations.
