Tablescape tuesday {decorate for Thanksgiving like david jimenez}

I just love Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things in my life.
It gets me so excited to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner. All the yummy food. sigh!

For this holiday season, I am overtly inspired by this gorgeous David Jimenez table decor.
The chocolate hues complement the gorgeous orange dishware perfectly. I love the turquoise painted dining chairs as well as the walls, so beautiful.
Finished off with candlelight and arrangements of the most gorgeous orange roses I have ever seen.
It may not be the traditional Thanksgiving decor colors but I think the punch of turquoise adds personality, so very decorista.

In other blissful news...
something I am thankful for= Jen Ramos gave me a shout out in her Siren Mag interview.
She thinks I'm a "world changing Christian" and it made my whole day! 
Especially because she is sort of a huge inspiration to me. 
So sweet.

tablescape tuesday

  everythingfab. countryliving
I find it to be extremely exciting the minute flowers enter the table area. The fragrance of blooms puts me in a blissful state almost immediately. This week when you are preparing for breakfast or even dinner throw some flowers on the table. It doesn't have to be a big bouquet, just trim some from the yard or grab a few stems at the store and just see what kind of magic happens.

tablescape tuesday: setting the table with colorful whimsy

At the moment bold and bright colors are striking me as they are total attention getters!
These lovely table settings are something you will not want to take your eyes away from.
Mixing and matching very bold hues are enticing and the perfect addition to your 'almost summer' soiree.

secret of domestic bliss #9...flower power

I know that nothing is better than getting a big bouquet of flowers from a special someone...
but ladies, never underestimate the feeling of buying some fresh flowers for yourself.
Heading to the the local market or stopping by the flower isle of the grocery store can be so joyful!
Isn't it fun to just stop and smell the roses...literally!
Filling your home with flowers is not only aesthetically worth while, 
it is also ravishing for the senses. 
Right now, I am loving Hydrangeas!
They smell amazing and give your home instant bliss!
Try adding a few to your bathroom.
or create a centerpiece to bring your dining room to life!
create a small bouquet for your bedside table to bedtime fragrance.
add some to your vanity for a touch of dressing room glam!

or line your mantel for some added color.

Its pretty obvious I love pretty and beautiful things in my home. 
Flowers are no exception.
I have been on the search for different ways to add beautiful floral elements in my home.
Sometimes the smell of a fresh bouquet makes me feel complete and other times I stumble upon a pillow, chair or even wallpaper whose floral pattern makes me feel blissful!
For now I will luxuriate in the ever so amazing inspiring images found on the web. 
love them.
