Let us give thanks....and celebrate one holiday at a time.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Christmas. It is by far my favorite time of the year. But one thing I dislike is how we rush into Christmas and bypass some other important holidays -- like Thanksgiving. It seems like soon as Halloween is over, out come the Christmas trees in department stores. Like whoaaa -- slow down! That's why one of the many reasons I love Nordstroms is that they celebrate one holiday at a time -- and put up this sign outside their stores.
I'm a firm believer in not "decking my halls" until after Thanksgiving is over.
Not to mention -- I kind of think Thanksgiving decor is the underdog of decorations and always gets the short end of the stick. So with that being said, here are some of my favorite ways to "deck the halls" for Thanksgiving : )
Photo I took outside of Nordstrom. 
I like the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time too. 
Well said.
 Thanksgiving mantels are so underrated and I have to say -- I love them. 
Especially this rustic burlap banner.
And really loving this "thankful for friends and family" table cloth.
decorating with white pumpkins and bittersweets (those orangey-red berries) make the decor os so chic!
Love the idea of setting up the kids table (you know everyone has a kids table!) with butcher paper, and drawing in their place settings. Give the kiddies a handful of crayons and they are good to go -- and leave the adults to have their own fun! : )

As the hostess of the Thanksgiving -- I would love to run around in this hat.
I mean come on, how festive and fun is this??
Outdoor decor.
Kind of in love with this pumpkin scarecrow!!
And this pretty Thanksgiving inspired wreath on the door would complete my holiday look.

All in all I really love Thanksgiving decor and think it should get the respect it deserves!
Anyone else think we should celebrate one holiday at a time? Or are you more of a "let's get to Christmas as soon as possible" kind of person?

  2. I agree that it's better to celebrate one holiday at a time. They had Halloween candy out in August!

    That turkey hat is hilarious :)

  3. Hi there Steph, how are you? My name is Ada, nice to meet you. I am a new follower and fan of your blog and I have been enjoying all the posts I have read so far. You have great taste (not just in clothing) and are real pretty, too.

    I love all the photos posted here. The first 3 photos & the last one of the wreath are gorgeous & I pinned them for inspiration.

    I would love for you to stop by my blog and please follow me. One of the things I am thankful for this year, is the warm blogging community and blogger friends I have made. I would love for you to be part of this community.

    Wishing you a Happy, Bright Thanksgiving!! <3 Ada.

  4. I'm so ready for Christmas to be everywhere!!
    I've convinced myself to not decorate the apt until this weekend, but all else goes. I've already started Christmas shopping and I'd be lying if I said that I didn't have on Christmas music as I type...oops!

    But-I do agree that stores start too early. Even I'm not prepared for holiday tunes in October. Pump the breaks!

  5. I like Thanksgiving, but I don't decorate for it. I think the stores start prepping people a bit early, I love how Nordstrom waits. :-)
