As my husband and son are watching videos of turkeys (little Will is going to be one in the preschool Thanksgiving program tomorrow, so, you know, he has to get in character!) we’re thinking about setting the Thanksgiving table. We’re major, major fans of the white pumpkin. Because, let’s face it: While festive, the orange pumpkin doesn’t exactly mesh beautifully with just any decor. 

Loi Thai

This tabletop is a perfect example of white done right in Loi Thai perfection. The antlers, soft candlelight, ideally proportioned pumpkins and gorgeous hydrangeas are just too good! We want to copy this one!

Karolyn – The Relished Roost

Have you ever seen anything like these pumpkins handprinted by our friend Karolyn, at The Relished Roost?  How gorgeous would they be gracing any Thanksgiving table? We know who else LOVES these: our friend Tina from The Enchanted Home!

We’d love to see what you’re cooking up!


Setting the Table


Are you ready for all that awesome holiday shopping? Have you started? Are you finished? Maybe somewhere in between? My mom, the elf, was wrapping up some beautiful Dear Carolinas for some early Christmas shoppers, and we thought Hey, what if we could do this for everyone? So, if you want to get a truly personalized holiday gift, just purchase Dear Carolina at your favorite local bookstore (indies rock!!!), Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Books-A-Million, Powell’s or wherever else you love buying books, email me at kristy @ kristy woodson (take the spaces out, of course!), and I’ll send you a personalized bookplate for the person (or people!) of your choice, a gorgeous bookmark and plenty of ribbon to tie up your own copy in style!

The even better part? We’re going to pick one lucky buyer (or sharer!) to win a $250 Amazon gift card to help with the rest of your holiday shopping! We’ll announce the winner December 15, so you’ll have plenty of time to get your goodies. (But Santa will be delivering those signed bookplates on his sleigh all the way up until December 18!)
