I tend to entertain a lot during the fall and winter months. Between October and February tons of holidays and events can creep up and can become a little overwhelming when you’re responsible for feeding a crowd. Today, I’m sharing how to set up a DIY chili bar, which is one of my favorite easy entertaining ideas to use all season long. (Super Bowl anyone?!) They don’t require a lot of effort on your part and can be made to appeal to a variety of diets and tastes. I’m also sharing a delicious recipe for my favorite turkey chili too!
Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and, thankfully, I think I’m off the hook for preparing dinner this year. It’s my first year close to Josh’s family and I was fully prepared to be the one hosting everyone in our rental house, which would have been less than ideal. But Josh’s aunt saved the day and invited us over to her place. Not sure I’ll get so lucky next year though. 😉 If you’re in charge of dinner prep for your family’s thanksgiving festivities this year, I’m sure you’re on the hunt for the perfect table setting and all of the yummy recipes. But one detail that often gets overlooked is the butter. It’s something simple, but with the easiest little entertaining trick you can turn it into a showstopper. In today’s post, I’m showing you guys how to make shaped butter, which is SO simple, but can really elevate your Thanksgiving table!

I’m flying out to sunny LA today to celebrate my little sister’s birthday. She’s turning the big 3-0 and we’re celebrating with surf, sand, sips, and some fun adventures along the way (like a wine safari…who knew?!) Bring on the palm trees! Because I’m feeling a little tropical lately, I wanted to share an easy way to bring a little tropical flair to your next event. These DIY fruit vases make the prettiest little table centerpiece when lined up together, or a fun statement when displayed apart. However you choose to display them, they’re so much fun!

We’re smack dab in the middle of holiday houseguest season and I thought I would share some simple and easy tips with you guys today, to get your bathroom house guest ready!

I definitely look forward to all of the lazy traditions we have as a family. We usually head to our family home is St. George, a city father south (and usually a few degrees warmer than Salt Lake!). We spend the long weekend, sleeping in, making Thanksgiving dinner, and Black Friday shopping our little hearts out! Call us crazy, but we even head into Las Vegas on Saturday to find even more deals. We’re a shopping family, what can I say. Do you guys join in on the Black Friday craziness at all? I think my husband has the right idea…he stays in bed and does all of his shopping online!
Either way, we always start out our shopping adventures with Thanksgiving dinner around the table as a family. It’s one of my husband’s favorite parts of the holiday and one that really brings everyone together.
If you happen to be hosting dinner this year, maybe even for the first time, I’m sharing a super easy way to decorate your table using basic items that you can find at your local craft store and grocery store!
This gold thanksgiving tablescape is the perfect combination of rustic and glam and is a cinch to put together!
