Thanksgiving Table Planning

I wanted to pop in quickly today and share my Thanksgiving table planning! This year I'm going for a yellow and green color scheme mixed with natural materials and metallics. I love how it's coming together so far. I made the table runner and will be back with a tutorial next week.

My New Deer

I wanted to pop in today to share my newest find that I am so, so in love with. I have been obsessed with faux taxidermy after seeing it all over Pinterest and on some of my favorite blogs. Here are some of my favorites:

Unfortunately, I did not want to drop $100+ on one and so pretty much gave up. However, enter my favorite place ever - Target - and I finally got lucky!

As I was walking through the store (ahem, grocery shopping), I rounded the corner and found this little beauty, who is part of their holiday line (which is amazing by the way!) I was immediately smitten and it went right into my cart. You can find her online here

While I loved it just the way it was, I wanted to glam it up a little bit and make it more like my inspiration photos. This was a very simple process - I simply taped off rest of his body, leaving only the antlers exposed and went to work with my favorite gold spray paint

Here is the finished product! I love how it turned out and can't wait to dress it up for the upcoming holidays!
