The Friday Five

Welcome to another The Friday Five!

Next week is Halloween which means Thanksgiving is on the horizon. I don’t mean to scare you so today I’m sharing a few things to get you ready for the next couple of weeks so it doesn’t all feel last minute. I hate being last minute on anything and I think that really is a testament to my type A personality.

1. I am already pinning Thanksgiving ideas over on Pinterest and you can follow my board HERE, but this one by A Fabulous Fete stopped me in my tracks. I love the simplicity of the centerpiece made from eucalyptus leaves and pears.

The darling small cutting boards and agate coasters with each person’s name, is a simple gorgeous place setting idea. And the gorgeous copper mugs with berries on picks is a beautiful touch. You can check out the full table design HERE.

This is such a gorgeous centerpiece for this Thanksgiving dinner!

2. If you caught my fall front porch this year then you know I already have this striped jute rug. I always layer my door mat with a small area rug on my front porch. I think it gives it more visual interest and it is a great way to add a pop of pattern. Of course you know I am a stripe lover and this one is SO good AND this rug is on sale for $14 so RUN and grab it!!

Love this door mat and it's preppy navy stripe!

3. I just purchased these suede booties this week! I was not even planning on getting a pair this year because I love my booties from the last 2 years BUT these guys are on sale, less than $40 and the most comfortable heeled shoes ever. I mean how could you not go grab these?! They fit true to size even though they are rounded in the front. Normally I am an 8-1/2 but I went with an 8 and they fit perfectly.

This is the perfect bootie for fall!

4. I love a great solid pillow for my sofa and chairs that will go with everything. Linen also happens to be one of my favorite fabrics because the texture of it is so pretty. These linen pillows are stunning and one sale for $24 from one of my all-time favorite retailers.

This is such a staple pillow and will go with everything!

5. I have been looking for a yummy smelling wreath for the upcoming holiday season for our kitchen hood and I think I have found this bay leaf wreath I am going to order. It is a fresh live wreath so this one has a fresh herbal scent and it will dry naturally. You can even use the leaves for cooking. It is also under $60 for the 22″ one which is such a great price for a “live” wreath.

This wreath is such a great price and smells delicious!
