Thanksgiving Highlights + Black Friday Sales + Items On My List

 

 

Oh, hi! How was your Thanksgiving if you celebrated yesterday? I hope it was really nice and that the food was delicious.

As usual, I piled my Thanksgiving plate with all of the side dishes. This is the one holiday where being a meatless eater is hardly noticeable because the sides are so amazing. Although my aunt does make the best little meatballs and I sort of miss those but it’s okay because I really like the sweet potatoes (with marshmallows!), the stuffing, mashed parsnips, salads, vegetables and who knows what else.

I missed the initial picture of the food on display before everyone in my family attacked it but here it is when I went up for my second round.

Oh! And check out a close up of the rainbow cauliflower! I spotted this beautiful bowl of cauliflower in the kitchen before it was put out. It was SO GOOD. My aunt is the best cook, everyone knows it.

There were lots of cakes and pies but the fruit platter was gorgeous. Can fruit be gorgeous? I think so.

And I can’t forget at least one shot of the table because my aunt sets the best tables.

At Henri Bendel:

You know I recommend EVERYTHING at Bendel but here are a few of my picks for today.

Influencer Tote – I love the grey and pink!

Uptown Out & About Organizer Wallet – This is like the greatest wallet that carries everything, you don’t even need a bag.

Glitter Smartphone Crossbody –  Always wanted this cute little crossbody, especially this time of year with the glitter.

Bailey 44 Authoritative Cold Shoulder Top

Bailey 44 Beanstalk Lace-Up Top

AND WAIT – did you watch the Thanksgiving Parade yesterday and notice these Rebecca Minkoff Pink Fingerless Gloves on the hands of the Savannah Guthrie, the co-host of the parade?! My mom and I were dying because I had asked for them for Hanukkah weeks ago with the matching Rebecca Minkoff Asymmetric Fringed Muffler Scarf! 

See, this is why you can trust my suggestions – clearly I’m a trendsetter <- insert my typical sarcastic tone here. But really, trust me. 🙂

      And then everyone will be jealous of you tomorrow for getting to eat all the yummy foods!

    I 100% agree on the Thanksgiving sides. Although I’m not a vegetarian, I probably like the sides more than the turkey on Thanksgiving. And I’m not doing Black Friday in stores today, but I might get some online sales. 🙂 I’m kind of looking forward to Cyber Monday too!

    Your food looks so delicious! I like turkey a lot, but the sides really make the meal for me. I didn’t shop yesterday but I think I will check out some of the sales this weekend.

    Your Aunt does set a beautiful table. I’d like to dive into those roses, the cauliflower and the fruit plate, although not necessarily in that order.
