Hello and happy? Monday to you…hope you have a wonderful weekend. Ours was pretty low key, with plenty of time to relax, dinner with friends, a little retail therapy and a good amount of work. Busy week ahead, I am probably in the minority when I say I like Mondays….don’t know why but I like that it is a day for me to get to plot out my week and it is always a day I make no plans but sit at my desk and play catchup. I have a long list of “to dos” which is growing seemingly by the hour…..then there’s the holidays coming. I am wavering on hosting a holiday party, I really wanted to but with the death of my dear friends son, that enthusiasm and desire has all but vanished. So we may just do our usual family Christmas party, not sure. I will also likely be hosting Thanksgiving which I really look forward to especially since its my absolute favorite meal of the year (and my kids too). No matter what I end up doing….rest assured entertaining is always a subject that gets me excited. I LOVE setting a beautiful table and coming up with new and creative ideas for tablescapes. I believe you can so easily elevate even the simplest of meals with a beautifully laid out table, gorgeous linens, elegant serving pieces,etc…..so if you have holiday entertaining on your calendar, then this is a prefect time to start thinking ahead. And Horchow just started their entertaining event with an extra 25% off so no? better time than now. I placed my order last night for a few goodies and thought I would share some of my top picks for the stylish entertainer….. This is the deal of the year!!
