Better Late Than Never Party Recap

November 9, 2012

Ah man,that was some serious partying! 
I can still hear the sounds of turkeys in my ears and who could pass up those pumpkin martinis and sweet potato pie!
 What time did you get home, you look tired?

It never fails that there is always the party favorite. Typically they arrive "fashionably "late, but this time she showed up right on time to show us her beautiful PB inspired tablescape.
Yes, Shirley from Housepitality Designs sure can move to the turkey dance and not to be confused with the chicken dance, as evidence in her beautiful table.
Someone else that I thought was groovin to the turkey dance was my favorite Kristen from Sophias Decor.
Her combination of color, texture and use of natural elements on her table were just stunning. I especially loved the use of cotton in her arrangements.
I sure hope you had just as much fun picking up some last minute inspiration and hopefully incorporating some into your holiday decorating as I did. Thanks to my wonderful co-hosts who are also sharing some of their party favorites today, so don't forget to stop by to say hello.

See you tomorrow for my Weekly Wow's. I am off to help out at my son's school fall festival. Have a great day!


  1. Thank you very much for hosting this party, I love Tksgiving, so this is great! Thanks again for your lovely comments for my table, in my formal dining room and in my breakfast room, which is next to it, I will also set that table too, with other dishes for the young ones. We don't celebrate Tksgiving here, in Ecuador, but there's lots of American retirees and so restaurants all over have meals for it, from Thursday thru saturday and I for one make my day the Staurday following..because Thursday is a work day here. Pretty features too! Enjoy your weekend.

  2. What beautiful images here this morning. They are just wonderful and I can;t wait to see all the party entries. xo Diana

  3. Super pretty tables - Shirley's decor is always amazing - just like her! Take care, Laura

  4. Thanks so much for featuring my Thanksgiving table! Shirley is such an amazing person...I'm glad to see hers here as well!


  5. beautiful tables....
    hope you had fun at the fall festival...we had one tonight, too!

    I was totally mesmerized by the huge bonfire. (and the smores!)

  6. They are so different.. but each equally beautiful! Somehow, I don't think paper plates will offer the same effect? haha

  7. Beautiful, Laura... I love Shirley's fall extravaganza!
