festive place cards.

I am a thanksgiving person.

it’s a holiday full of amazing food, great wine, and incredible company. typically being your family. it’s about spending the day morning cooking a scrumptious feast, sitting around the table, and sharing what you’re thankful for.

our thanksgiving tablescapes tend to be on the rustic + natural side. and generally informal. which means when everyone is ready to sit down, there’s a lot of pointing + musical chairs taking place. by adding place cards, your instantly eliminating the “where do I sit” dance. and it looks pretty. but does not have to be a lot of work.

you can go out into your yard [if your yard resembles my parent’s]. or you can go to a local store + spend $5, for a bag of pine cones.

all you need is a printer, paper, twine/string, scissors, and pine cones.

the place cards need to be tents, so they fold open. put a hole punch on the left-hand side and tie a loop.

I’ll show what these place cards turn into later in the week!

it’s #LLinaBCvsTurkey week.

happy monday!

cozy night in.

when it comes to winter, I prefer to stay in. especially at night. and now, while the weather is still nice, it is the perfect time to prepare my wardrobe, living room, and kitchen. the snowy nights are coming.

nothing over $27.

[don’t forget your man].

a bottle of peppermint schnapps is always a good idea too. delicious in hot cocoa. [and I’ll be sharing a few cocktail recipes that feature it]. whether we like it or not, the holidays and winter are sneaking up.

happy monday.
