{thanksmas?}

The other day, Mr.Cattlebuyer and I were talking about how Thanksgiving isn't even Thanksgiving anymore, we might as well call it "Thanksmas." The fact that most retail stores have the holiday Christmas decor out right after Halloween, makes me wonder if people even decorate for Thanksgiving anymore? Target had all their fall decor on clearance weeks ago?! 

Anyways-- It got me thinking... is it possible to effortlessly decorate for both Thanksgiving & Christmas using most of the same decor? I think it is! :) 

Take this table setting below for example.  The neutral color palate acts as a perfect base for both holidays.  Add white pumpkins & green ornamental gourds for a fresh & festive fall look.  And when Christmas comes around simply change out the fall decor for some dried bay leaf wreaths (like in the photo),stick a few toughs of evergreen branches and some silvery, sparkly ornaments into the centerpiece and you are set for both holidays!  It's a two-for-one kind of a look which I happen to enjoy! 

This porch-turned-dining room is effortlessly chic. Wicker chairs are spruced up with bolster pillows, and a hanging lantern brings extra charm to this entertaining spot

Now if only there was a way to make those fresh flowers last for a month...  :) 

Happy Monday Friends!
