Harvest is Upon Us

This year, I'm hosting Thanksgiving so, as with any event, I approach this special Thursday with my usual aplomb. And, it all starts with Wheat.
Spread the word about your wholesome feast to your guests with these harvest invitations from TinyPrints.com (less than $35 for 25 invites!)

Bundles of wheat make for an elegant table accent. It adds texture and warmth--without overdoing it on the theme. And, because its so sturdy, it makes for a wonderful decoration through the holiday season. It's a fabulous concept for a barnside wedding as well.

Following on our wheat texture, I may have to reconsider my fine china in lieu of a moderate splurge on a seasonal set of dishes from Target .

Amber votives can be plentiful at $2.5o a piece.

And, I adore these swanky glass cloches from Sur La Table. They are the perfect way to display pre-dinner eats & cheeses. They'd also double for a fabulous way to display candles on the table.

And finally, dessert--simply, would not be complete without Baked NYC's Caramel Apple cake. I'll be making my way down to Red Hook for this modern spin on apples & classic autumn spices, then layered & topped with a sweet caramel buttercream. It's delicious--and it matches!
