Sassy Living Below the Mason-Dixon Line



Get set …T-day is almost here!

Hello dear readers — a few ideas on getting ready for Thanksgiving.  Can you believe it’s next week?  Your mind is probably twirling with how long to cook the turkey and a list of sides (farm these out to the guests) that need to be prepped and served.  I, of course, am always obsessed with what to serve them on — I know, I know but presentation is important.  And, presentation my friends doesn’t necessarily mean expensive.

I love ETSY and boy do they have some great items for the feast.  My friend Jan has a fabulous site and she is offering this  lovely tureen.  The color is so chic and modern and could be used year round.  http://etsy.me/1qWYVUN

Georgia decorator James Farmer (Southern Living Magazine’s editor-at-large) has some great ideas for using what you have and mixing in natural and traditional to create a fresh looking presentation:

Or if you are into a grand style, you could channel Aerin Lauder who is an absolute goddess of tablescapes and atmosphere:

No matter what you have, make the presentation yours and do so with all the gusto you can muster!
