Copper + Gold Boho Thanksgiving Table Ideas

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission for any sales made through them. Full disclosure.

Thanksgiving is coming fast! Even though we are expecting our third baby any time now, there is still a chance we might host Thanksgiving dinner here. It would be potluck and my husband would cook the turkey, so that I can simply focus on our new baby...and making the house pretty for our guests. 
The creativity involved with that actually excites me no matter what is going on. I'm planning now how I want to do up the table should we decide to have our family here. This is what I came up with...my ideal version I suppose you could say.

38 Weeks and Counting

I have partnered with Burke Decor for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure.

On Sunday, I hit the 38 week mark in this pregnancy. This baby seems pretty content to just stay where she is. My first baby, Hazel, was born premature at 31 weeks and Owen was born at exactly 38. It looks like I might get to know what the 39th and 40th weeks of pregnancy are like with this one...maybe even beyond?
I am definitely nesting these days and spending as much time and energy as possible (which is fading fast) getting things ready around here for our baby girl.

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Mantel

Happy Halloween! My kids are so excited to dress up today as a pink fairy and Iron Man for their school costume parade and then head out trick-or-treating this evening. I hope I can keep up with them! I'm 38 weeks along now, just waiting on Baby Girl to make her appearance. 
A few weeks ago, I finally got the "Halloween decorating bug" and did up our dining room mantel. Hazel and Owen had fun helping me and making their own decorations too.

Mainly, I used items we already had, decorations from previous years, and some crafts we worked on together. The only new purchases were all of the pumpkins and gourds.

Here is what we put together...

Although I MUST WARN YOU!! Before we venture ahead...

Hazel's Wolf Birthday Party

At the end of June, my sweet daughter Hazel turned five. Her favorite animal is the wolf, so for months she had been telling me she wanted to have a wolf themed birthday party. I knew it would be a tricky one planning and finding decorations for, but I was up for the challenge!
Even though this party happened months ago, I still wanted to share how we celebrated here with you. Better late than never right? (I'm pretty sure I say that about all of my kids' birthday party posts!)

Styling a Bed with Kilim Pillows

I have partnered with Kilim Pillow Store for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure.

I can never stop tweaking my decor. I love to change things up. And I have a *slight* obsession with throw pillows. Seriously...I have a closet full of pillow covers and inserts. It might be a little out of control...
Today, I am showing how easily I change out the vibe of our minimalist white bedroom with some textural throw pillows...whenever the mood strikes.

Wildflower Bohemian Baby

Our baby girl is due in less than a month! Hard to believe really, but then I know as soon as she arrives we will wonder how we ever got on without her. It is such an exciting time bringing a new person into the world.

It's been five years since I had a baby girl to shop for, and I have become a bit obsessed with looking for cute new finds for this one. There are so many adorable baby items out there, I just can't help myself. I have already purchased a few, and keep adding to my wish list. Today, I am sharing some of my favorites in a gathering of products in my current "boho baby" style love.

A Vintage Rug for the Kitchen & a Giveaway!

I have partnered with SF Rugs for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure.

I have been wanting a vintage rug in our kitchen for a long while and now I finally have one! Our kitchen renovation has been a very slowwww process to say the least, but we are still plugging away at it. Maybe it will be completely done by the time we put this place up for sale? Let's hope...
We started by painting our wooden cabinets light gray and adding hardware. It did make a huge difference to the look in here. Click here if you missed the BEFORE post.

Making Room for Baby in a Small Space

As some of you may know, I am expecting our third child this November. Five year old, Hazel and four year old, Owen can't wait to meet their new little sister this fall. It is a very exciting time in our home!
Hazel begged me to have a baby for quite awhile before I got pregnant and desperately wanted a little sister "to play Barbies with" and basically be a little mom to. When we found out it was a girl, she was over the moon thrilled. She would follow me around everywhere and say she just wanted to be close to the baby. Owen was just glad he wouldn't have to share too many toys.

Choosing Curtains for the Bedroom

I have partnered with Budget Blinds for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure.

Choosing curtains seems like an easy thing to do, but for me, not so much. I have stalled on selecting a pair for our master bedroom for several months now. I would go shopping to look, but leave empty handed. I would look online, but couldn't decide what I really wanted. Finally, I found a set that I fell in love with from Budget Blinds.

Simple Fall Mantel: Minimalist & Natural

This year, I decided to go fairly simple with my fall mantel decor. The walls and salvaged mantel are both white, so I wanted to bring in a bit of deep seasonal colors and natural elements to welcome autumn into our dining room.
I shared a glimpse of it in my recent Fall Home Tour. Today, I am sharing more details of how I brought it all together.
