grateful for a gifted table

Remember Bryn Alexandra's awesome November giveaway?

all of this? yep, that's what I'm talking about!

Well, I was the extremely lucky winner! I knew I wanted to do something fun with the suzani fabric, and when it arrived I could see the colors looked perfect in my kitchen.

It is now the perfect autumn table runner, and I am in love. The new candlesticks, in that chestnut wood tone I adore, light up the table along with a lantern I suspended from the ceiling with a simple hook and some jute twine.

Isn't it amazing how the colors in the suzani fabric are almost a perfect match to the Anthropologie plates on the wall between the windows?

All I can say is thank you to Bryn for such generous, beautiful gifts. And, I wish I was having Thanksgiving at my house! Wherever you are, whoever you are with, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday.
