What's that? You're hosting a Thanksgiving feast for ten and don't know where to begin? Never fear! Style Me Pretty is here to loan a bit of inspiration to your Holiday fare. This year, our team wanted to bring an easy, no-fret fête to the table (pun intended). With simple, organic elegance in mind, we created a color palette inspired by cotton, linen, neutral hues and living flora. Then, we added in a few pretty DIYs to the mix as well as yummy, easy-to-make food and a gorgeous tablescape. And it's all coming up today...a Thanksgiving feast, made entirely simple.

When we were thinking through all of our many Thanksgiving ideas, and talking about a holiday that has easily become one of our favorite days of the year, we thought about what makes this holiday so very special. The sweetness of spending uninterupted time with friends and family, the simplicity of being thankful and the stunning array of loosen your belt inspired food. So we wanted to create a backdrop that could let those memories take center stage. Something that was quiet and elegant, but casual. Something that was organic and neutral, but filled with style.

Beautiful, right? Well guess what. Today is just the beginning. We have the Do-It-Yourself projects that are so pretty, you'll hardly believe the simplicity. We have the beautiful table spread that our sweet friend Heidi at White Loft Studio captured with EASY instructions on how to achieve said look. And then, the grand finale will come in a bit later in the week, with a full downloadable guide to design a Thanksgiving of your very own.

We're talking amazing recipes (that you can do in a small kitchen or farm out for a fun potluck celebration), DIY projects, timelines, grocery lists, the works. It's the kind of guide that you'll print out and use for years and years to come.

So stay tuned as we debut a few beautiful DIYs and a stunningly simple Thanksgiving tablescape that is sure to wow your guests!
