With just a couple of weeks to prep, it is time to think of menus, decor and hospitality as many get set for opening up their homes to celebrate Thanksgiving Day. Sam and I figured that there was no better way to get inspired and pumped for the season than to revisit a couple of “oldie but goodie” projects for some zesty celebration.
Honestly, since Sam and I have been blogging everyday for the last 2.5 years, it was a great refresher on where we have been and what we have done. So here are a couple of highlights that may be new to you. They definitely have prepped me for what new blogs are needed this season…some fresh ideas for 2014 turkey day to come!
Go out and collect up some acorns! It is easy to create this Give Thanks Sign
How about trying something new this year? Have you ever done a Brined Turkey?
This project is incredibly easy and adorable to boot! Try your hand at Mason Jar Lid Pumpkins for your Thanksgiving decorating!
And here is a recipe for one of our most popular side dishes: Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Hash
How about a slightly Boho inspired Thanksgiving Tablescape using natural elements and pewter.
Here is a great idea for your Thanksgiving dinner or a lovely hostess gift, Homemade Applesauce
Be inspired by an elegant Thanksgiving Tablescape of mirrored candles
For an easy side that is minus marshmallows, try a Baked Sweet Potato with Browned Butter & Crispy Sage

Crock-pot for dessert? Yes! Give this Crock-pot Pumpkin Pie a try.
We hope you are feeling inspired! Now that we know where we have been, we will look to bring you some new ideas over the next couple of weeks as we prepare for our own families and hope to give you some fresh approaches to celebrating with yours!
