Friday's Feature: Christmas Decor Picks {Sur La Table}

Feature:
I know, I know, I'm diving into the Christmas posts before I've even mentioned Thanksgiving.  But, don't you worry after this I'm holding off on Christmas until post Thanksgiving… I think :)
(There will also still be plenty of Thanksgiving recipe ideas and decor setups to come - don't think I skipped over that holiday and forgot).

Why am I searching for Christmas decor now?  Because we're decorating at Casa de Sotherden in just a  couple weeks ago so we don't have to worry about it Thanksgiving week (don't worry we don't host - we aren't serving turkey under the Christmas tree… not that there is a single thing wrong with that!) and the house is festive/ready to go when we get back!

It all began with a search for candy cane ornaments like my mom uses on our home tree (amongst others) and then I realized one of my favorite stores, Sur La Table, has some of the cutest holiday items.  Too good not to share…


The plaid napkins, runner and appetizers plates are in my shopping cart with the candy cane ornaments (the reason for the searching) and I've got a great tablescape in mind for this year.  My mom started a Spode collection for us last year which I'm in love with but if your in need of some Christmas plates they have some great options.

Other Happenings:
+ The Kansas City Royals proved they were the team meant to win the World Series closing out the series quickly (Sorry, Derek!) BUT in college I interned for one of the Royals' minor league teams - the Wilmington Blue Rocks and got to watch some players get their starts the year I was there, including a now very well known, Eric Hosmer.

+ For the fellow "Friends" lovers out there - would you have noticed these filming mistakes? Speaking of, it's about time to pull out all my Friends DVD's and watch each of the Thanksgiving episodes in order.  I like to do it every year, tis the season.

+ 10% of the population has a gene that makes them ultra sensitive - HSP (highly sensitive person).  Derek and I both think I'm most definitely in that 10%.  (and yes, yes I did learn about this from Ladies of London.  I'm also about four episodes behind).

+ I can't quite bring myself to watch Christmas movies yet, although I'm thrilled that Hallmark chanel is already running them - I'm storing them up in my DVR and saving them for a few weeks.  Leading me to my last point… Seven Weeks until Christmas!

Linking up today with the Friday linkups -

  3. I'm one of those people that won't listen to Christmas music or decorate for Christmas until after thanksgiving but that didn't stop me from already shopping for decorations! I think that I've decided that everything in our house will be reindeer themed so I might have to check those reindeer out at Sur la table!

  27. I've never heard of Sur la Table, but those are such cute Christmas decorations. I have to confess that we already have Christmas decorations up in our house, but I got SO excited being able to decorate for the first time. And we haven't forgotten about Thanksgiving either, we're going to visit family out of state then, so I figured why not enjoy it longer. :)
