One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is put together pretty tablescapes for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Every year I come up with new color schemes and themes and have so much fun putting it all together. I thought I would share this year’s modern farmhouse thanksgiving tablescape. Last years, table was farm inspired as well, and I remember writing about how it was my dream to move to a farmhouse. What a difference a year can make. We’ve got so much to be grateful this year, it makes me extra excited to celebrate Thanksgiving!

I feel like every season I get a color on my brain and I kind of dress around it or find a way to bring it into every outfit I wear. This fall I feel like taupe is my color. From these awesome OTK boots I snagged earlier in last month, to this BlankNYC jacket that I just picked up last week, I feel like I keep gravitating towards the color. And it’s no wonder…
Taupe is a magic color.
When my husband and I got married we bought the cheapest mattress we could find and that was that. We were in our early 20’s and it was fine. But several years and a few babies later, that cheap mattress was not fine… It was horrible. I was pregnant with Ava and miserable, and we decided to splurge and buy a really, really good mattress. I had never slept so well, and we both decided that investing in a good mattress was not so much of a splurge as it was a necessity.
We also decided that we would replace our mattresses more frequently. Craig started talking to me earlier this year about maybe ordering a new mattress online. He’d heard of a few new brands doing it and was interested. I was skeptical. Our mattress was really good and I didn’t want to replace it unless it was something at least as good or better. I’m not opposed to ordering things like this online, I just didn’t want to settle. We’ve been sleeping on a memory foam hybrid mattress for the last several years, and I didn’t want to go back to a traditional mattress. I was also skeptical about how it would work. I mean, how do you ship a King size mattress in a box??
