Halloween is over and the holiday season has begun! Thanksgiving is coming up in a few weeks and most likely you will be hosting family and friends in some form or another. Whether you have guests staying for the weekend or just for thanksgiving dinner, being a gracious host/hostess does not have to be stressful! I’ll show you how to dress yourself and your table and impress your guests with ease.

A few tips for overnight guests:
Make them feel at home with thoughtful details such as a welcome basket complete with fresh towels, a bar of your favorite soap, local treats, and water bottles.

Double check the guest bedroom before your guests arrive to make sure everything is in order and comfortable.
Hosting dinner? Prep as much as you can in the days before so you can easily pop dishes in the oven and spend more time with your guests. Make new traditions and entertain your guests with a wine tasting. Open several bottles of your favorite local wines and make placards with descriptions or have your guests write their own descriptions!

Take cues from nature for your table decor. Adorn your table with colorful dried indian corn, miniature gourds and squash for a festive look. Tie your linen napkins with ribbons in shades of deep red, orange or brown and attach tags to announce place settings. Hollow out miniature pumpkins and insert candles or flowers for innovative vases. Use foliage, wheat, cranberries and persimmons for festive accents.


 For cooler fall weather pair cozy sweaters with slacks and accessorize with a statement necklace. Mix and match fall colors such as rust red, ox blood red, mustard yellow, rich chocolate hues with creamy white cashmere. Play up texture by combining leather and silks.
