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!

happy monday!

gift guide: for the host.

it’s nearly the time of year holiday parties begin to consume our nights + weekends. although, you will not hear me complaining about scrumptious cocktails, plentiful food, and amazing company. you do not want to show up empty handed. so for my first gift guide of the year, I’ve dedicated it to the host of the best party you’ll attend this holiday season. or better, to every single one of them because you don’t have a boring party on your calendar. 

gift guide: for the host c/o LLinaBC.com

• pack a metal beverage tub with your favorite holiday brews. don’t forget to include the skeleton key bottle opener.

• or a serving tray that states it’s “time to drink champagne and dance on the table” with gold stemless flutes.

• how about gifting a night of hot chocolate + gingerbread decorating?

• or make a holiday twist on the classic cheese + wine combo, with warm mulled wine in a festive mug.

happy tuesday.
