Wishful Wednesday – Togetherness

Hey, everyone.  Another Wednesday is here…& Thanksgiving is TOMORROW!  For some of you, the kids may be out of school, you have every burner on your stove going, & food dishes spread all over the place!  My plans include bringing extra containers for leftovers, & a knife & fork. (LOL)  Others, may not have any special plans, or to-do’s scheduled.

So, my wish for you today is…….Togetherness

Whether you decide to hang out with family & friends…or just chill alone, may you feel warmth & comfort, & most of all….. LOVE, this Thanksgiving like never before ❤ 😊

Must See Creative Table Decor To Wow Your Guests

Hey! How are you? Do you have all of your Thanksgiving preparations ready? Well, since I wasn’t able to post this on Friday…I just had to share these great tips on how to present your meal with some extra pizzazz. Enjoy! 😊

 

Flaming Foliage Candle holders

Give colorful fallen leaves one last chance to shine…or glow, by repurposing them as decorations on glass candle holders.  Dress up inexpensive glass candle holders with real fall leaves.  The kids will have fun helping to gather leaves for this craft.

 

Kernel Candles

This idea, again…only requires a couple of glass candle holders, or you could even use your own large drinking glasses.  Add some un-popped popcorn kernels & a pillar candle of your choice. Surround the outside of the glass with nuts or leaves…voila!

 

Glass Bowl Leaf Candles

A beautiful, simple way to embrace fall’s beauty. A glass bowl filled with an array of colored leaves with candles. You can also use flame-less candles to avoid any mishaps.

 

 

Mayflower Ship Place cards

Really neat huh?  The pilgrims had a long voyage before hosting their first Thanksgiving. Luckily, your guests only need to walk to the dinner table! These paper ships double as both place cards & an easy way to serve dry snacks like popcorn, nuts, & dried fruit. Perfect for the kids table. You’ll hit a home run with the kids with this one…believe me. 😉

Great ideas right?

Now…my question for you is, What are YOU thankful for today?

Cool breezes & hot cider…

Pumpkin pies & cozy fires,

Freshly picked apples, filling baskets…

Warmed toes under thick blankets

Fallen leaves crumpling under our feet…

Children going trick-or-treat,

Fall, welcome…

Hello everyone. 🙂  I hope you all have been enjoying your summer thus far.  It’s hard to believe it’s almost over!  Say it ain’t so!  Well, unfortunately…it is soon winding down & the kids will be going back to school soon.  Bummer!  No, worries…I have some last-minute vacation spots that may help cheer you up. 🙂

 

Hawaii Trip

Aloha! No one can resist the beautiful sandy beaches of beautiful Hawaii… Check out these deals & jump on it before they get away 🙂

 

Florida Trip

The land of Mickey Mouse & Shamu, never really has an “off” season, but hotel rates are often around their lowest points of the year at the end of the summer. The reason? With schools nearly back in session, very few families are taking the kids to the Magic Kingdom in August or September. The result? Shorter lines at popular attractions & savings of as much as 50% on Orlando hotels and entertainment.  Yay for you! 🙂

 

The Caribbean

Got calypso? If summer tanning didn’t pan out, there’s still time. Resorts across the Caribbean and Mexico’s East Coast are offering savings of 50% or more this time of year, as “hurricane season” keeps travelers away. Armed with travel insurance, however, sun-seekers can score a great last-minute deal for all-inclusive resorts and luxury getaways. Also, great fares to Puerto Rico and vacation deals to popular spots such as the Bahamas, Dominican Republic and the Cayman Islands.

 

The Rockies & Southwest

hclubvacationRockyMountainsRV

Postcard-perfect views, luxury resorts, top-rated golf courses and spas … the Western U.S. has a lot to offer, and for savvy  travelers, now’s the time to go! You’ll find Arizona resorts looking to lure back visitors after a hot summer and Colorado resorts attempting to fill room nights before ski season starts. In a few months, prices will double or triple at these resorts.

Well, I hope some of you will be able to take advantage & travel to some of these awesome places, but if not…hey, there’s nothing like a short drive across town, or another cook-out in the backyard!  Bon voyage! Until next time… “Toodles!” 🙂
