It's All in the Details

Decor

I love the way my mom displayed this candle for the holiday's wrapped in cranberries. It's a Christmas candle and the aroma from the holiday candle and the beautiful cranberry display makes it feel so homey and comforting. 

These tones are perfect for the holidays. Warm greens, oranges, yellows and golds make for a perfect Thanksgiving tablescape. 

To add a more personal touch to the table settings, we used markers that easily wash off in water to tag each glass with the person's name. 

Here's a close up of the place settings on the Thanksgiving table. These leaf placements are the perfect addition! 

Food & Drink 

I love the way this chocolate photo turned out. We always keep a little jar of candies and chocolates as you walk into the house on the wall mantle, and these Lindt chocolates just remind me of home and the holidays. I remember going to the grocery store with my mom and seeing these in the checkout line and begging her to let me get one! 

These are some of the ingredients in the Brusch family famous Eggnog recipe. My dad has finally shared the recipe with us, but I will not be sharing it with you :) It's a family classic after all! And one of our favorite things about the holidays. 

I made this delicious spinach and artichoke dip as an appetizer to eat before Thanksgiving dinner was ready. It was a hit! It's super easy, you can find the recipe here. I also made little spinach dip bites like the below the next day with leftover items as a snack before dinner. 

These little bites were amazing! I got the recipe here and gave it a slight twist. We only had one little pan that my sister found which gave these little things their cute tartlet shape. 

Style

My parents just recently got these adorable chairs as part of their living room decor and I absolutely love them. They're in an adorable slate color and with our Christmas pillows they make the perfect comfortable chairs to sit and drink wine :) 

This top is one of my absolute favorites. I loved it so much I even bought one for my sister as a gift one year! (I can't remember if it was for her birthday or for Christmas though!). The silver floral details on the shoulder are so delicate and take this simple shirt up a notch and make it perfect for the holidays. These ripped jeans from Seven for Mankind are so comfortable and the wash is my favorite. I also really like these.
