Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week?? For the past 2-3 years, my husband and I have hosted Thanksgiving. It is a lovely tradition!

That being said…three members of my immediate family are currently in Kenya returning on Thanksgiving Day, so our normal traditions are out of whack this year. My husband and I are likely headed to his mother’s apartment and we’ll probably go out to dinner on Thanksgiving Day. We are still considering if we should host Thanksgiving on Friday or Saturday with my immediate family. Part of me will miss not celebrating the tradition, but part of me is wondering if this is a blessing in disguise and could give me a much needed break! Stay tuned for what we decide!

If you are hosting Thanksgiving or are looking to bring a hostess gift, I highly recommend taking a trip to the West Elm website or store. West Elm is my go-to for decorating items! Their style is organic yet modern mixed with beautiful patterns and textures. This season West Elm has collaborated with the caterers at Jewels of New York and Kinfolk to create oodles on table preparation inspiration and recipes. Check it out here.

Also, can we just soak in the beauty that the stylists at West Elm created in these photos for a second?! Super talented!
