This coming Saturday Curt & I will be hosting our first ever Friendsgiving! Since I’m crazy about entertaining, I knew I wanted to make this extra special and with the help of my friends at Loom Decor – it’ll be just that. Loom Decor offers over 400+ fabric options that can be customized to any of their designs. With the company’s large offerings of eye-catching fabrics, you can choose your pattern or solid color for a variety of pillow styles, poufs, bedding, table top or even create your own custom window treatments – which is why I got stuck on their site for over 2 hours, I literally wanted it all! By far my favorite part is that they give you the ability to mix and match, which comes in handy when you may only need to use certain items for entertaining at a time. The idea of being able to match my throw pillows to my table decor literally excites me – Loom Decor just gets me. As for my personal tablescape, I love the idea of mix matching metals. I have an array of metals going on here with silver, copper and gold..all of which go super well with my table top pieces from Loom Decor.

Now for the fun part…

I’ll confess I am a total beauty junkie. I probably paint my nails once a day (not exaggerating, just ask Curt), I try new makeup almost daily and have a different scent for every day of the week. One thing I won’t change up though is my daily makeup remover. I’ve been using Pond’s wet cleansing towelettes for a while now, so when the opportunity came along to work with the brand, I had to  jump at it.  While the Pond’s cold cream cleanser is new to my routine, I’m really not quite sure how I’ve gone with out it for so long. After a long day, the first thing I want to do is remove my makeup and get into pj’s. I first apply the cold cream cleanser all over my face and follow with the wet cleansing towelette. The cleanser truly helps in getting off the makeup that sometimes the towel can’t get to. I then follow with my normal night beauty routine.

Now for the fun part…

I’m sorry if I sound like a broken record, but Fall is by far my favorite season! I put together this simple tablescape to provide inspiration for your Fall entertaining. While I love intricate tables, a simple set up can be just as appealing. I love the idea of mixing prints, hence the linen napkins and placemats from Ralph Lauren. I’d say this is a lunch/brunch friendly set up as the centerpiece is simple and easy. A succulent can also be used at each place setting for an extra touch, as shown in the first picture. I decided to mix in mugs into the place setting all because of Curt. He thinks soup is best served in mugs and I’m now coming to understand why – it’s easier! To top it off, I used my favorite gold flatware, gold candle holders and gold rimmed vase with a simple succulent – don’t forget the wine, this particular red has become a favorite from The Wine Bar.

Vase: Robert Siegel Studio // Placematts: Ralph Lauren // Napkins: Ralph Lauren // Flatware: West Elm // Wine Glasses: Scherer’s Jewelers // Candle holders: Target, old // Mugs: The Longaberger Company // Plates: Target
