Just Around the Corner~

Lurrrve...the 'miss-match' pieces on this table setting,
so beautifully styled by the talented Eddie Ross.
Even down to the smallest detail; tiny spoons for the salt & pepper,
and the that rich brown grosgrain ribbon tied in perfect bows!
Here in the States, we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving Day this week!
Once again, families would gather & celebrate the true meaning of 
this Holiday. ~Yup, excessive food & the sometimes awkward family reunion?! 
Seriously though, it's the perfect time to express our gratitudes...
From the blessings we have all received thus far; loved ones, health 
& much-much more I'm sure! ...AND of course having 
the loveliest table setting & food glorious food won't be bad at all!
Has anyone prepared your Thanksgiving menu yet?
I think Bon Appetit has the yummiest Thanksgiving menu + recipe ideas.
Literally counted 26 of them! From the traditional, modern, vegetarian, Southern,
and much-much more. Plus, the food photography is absolutely superb as well.~YUM!
Finally...this ensemble via model, Hanneli Mustaparta's Blog.
(miumiu collar, Ralph Lauren cashmere, Screaming Mimi pants)
This particular picture has no relation whatsoever to my Thanksgiving Post,
except for the pretty color?! ~Oh-well...why not right?!
un-fortunately or fortunately, I have to miss out on 
all the Thanksgiving festivities this coming Thursday.
ehem*~ the City of Paris will be waiting for me instead!
.oh là là...

I'd gladly miss Thanksgiving for a Parisian jaunt. Well, I'd maybe cast a teensy wistful look back at the food I missed. Maybe.

photojoy said...

Happy for you! Be in Paris at this time of the season! It must be soooo fancy out there. You'll miss him, though.

Phoenix said...

I think if one has to be abroad during Thanksgiving, Paris is the best choice by far :)

And I'm slightly obsessed with Bon Appetit, even though I have no skills whatsoever to make about 1/2 their dishes. I can drool, though, right??

S and O said...

Oh wow the second picture ( the one of that fabulous looking Thanksgiving dinner) has totally stolen my heart!
That looks like exactly what I plan to be eating come turkey day :)
Happy Thanksgiving!
