Inspiration Board: Thanksgiving Garden

My Favorite holiday would only be better if I could eat it outside in a beautiful and cozy setting. I think it wouldn’t be too hard if you planned ahead. Plant graceful grasses, thistle, winterberry and other plants that look beautiful in the fall. Make it festive with golden globes in the trees, and beautiful candles. Arrange firewood for a beautiful but functional backdrop and then start a fire or fire up the heater, while snuggling under a suzani lap blanket. Finally enjoy a straight from the earth feast in garden.

    While a wonderful concept, I doubt that it would ever be something that I would be able to do. I don’t think asking friends and family to dine outdoors in the snow would go over so well. Though possibly decorating the entry, or just outside of the windows with some of these beaautiful decorations would be a great treat.

  2. Hi everyone!
    Valentines Day is just around the corner and I want to order my girl friendfiance something sweet.
    Any recommendations? Oh and anyone know where I can order cheap bouquets? I want to preorder flowers for her just to start things off.
