Happy Tuesday, everyone! I know this "weekend recap" is a bit late, but we've been spending all the time we can with our family in town. They've all now left, and we're getting back to life as usual. We had 6 people staying at our house for Thanksgiving, and it was amazing! So much food, sightseeing, beautiful weather, cards, and food. Yes, I said food twice. Here's a pictorial look at our mini staycation:
How amazing are these flowers? I had my gala at The Sanctuary, and I was in charge of all the flowers. I just love fall blooms and the oranges, yellows, and reds. You know I also had to sneak my favorite color, purple, into a few of the centerpieces.
Kiawah sunsets are like no other.
Of course I took a bunch of the flowers to reuse for our Thanksgiving table. I was really sad to have to cover the beautiful table we're refinishing since it wasn't 100% polyurethane'd yet. (On the bright side how cute is the tablecloth and the napkins we chose?) I will be sharing the whole dining room set refinishing project here soon. You can also shop our whole dinnerware collection here.
Saturday morning at the Farmer's Market with stops at Kudu for a latte and Callie's for my new favorite biscuit (peanut butter, banana, and chocolate chip biscuit topped with whipped cream and bacon, called The Elvis)!
New favorite beers at Revelry: this Star Wars-inspired Flanders red ale and their current secret beer, made with tea from the Charleston Tea Plantation - so many of my favorite things in one glass!
And, of course, Christmas decorations are starting to appear all over the city!! My favorites are always on King Street and the doors of every church downtown. I can't wait to see what all the houses around the Pitt Street Bridge (below) in the Old Village look like!
