November Inspirations 2015

by katie

Welcome back to another monthly inspirations post! It’s already November and it’s hard to believe that its the holiday season once again. I saw something on Facebook the other day that said there were 10 weeks until Christmas and I started getting anxious. Ugh! There never really seems like there is enough time to get things done, but before I start freaking myself out about Christmas, I like to slow things down and enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.

There are a lot of great features this month from my favorite magazines, Family Fun, Family Circle, Better Homes & Gardens and Parents. Let’s start with Parents, shall we?

These cute games are a great idea to keep kids busy and out of the kitchen. Every year it is so hard to get them occupied on something and not under foot.
I’m in love with this place setting. The bow napkin is absolutely adorable so I just had to share it.

Better Homes & Gardens

I really love this entryway/mudroom. The bright blue is a breath of fresh air and it looks well organized. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to feature this month from them. I just didn’t see anything that caught my eye. Boo!!!

Family Circle

This dining room is to die for! I love the covered chairs and the metal table. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

It wouldn’t be a holiday without some great dessert ideas. These look super simple to make and can really capture the fun of the holiday!

I’m sharing this meal below because it’s built with the essentials for a typical Thanksgiving menu in the Northeast where I’m from. Nothing says New England like a crab cake next to your turkey!

Family Fun

Create a fun little pocket with simple scrapbook or cardstock paper and some Washi Tape. It would be fun to make a wall of these to put tiny toys in, right?

While Thanksgiving still has yet to pass, thinking of gifts for your family and friends isn’t completely out of the question. This fingerprint heart art is a great idea for a gift for a grandparent or a new mom or dad. So creative and colorful!

Thanks for stopping by!
