He's hysterical!! Our Thanksgiving tablescape event was such fun last night as Matt Allegretta, design coordinator from Anthropologie, created several Thanksgiving interpretations.
Here we are getting warmed up. Lauren made polenta with sautéed wild mushrooms. Deelish!
Best staff around, hands down! Love these talented ladies. This Thanksgiving and everyday I am very grateful to Abigail, Susan, Suzanne, Lauren and, not pictured Michelle and Matt. They make everyday easy and fun and a store that feels like home! XOXOXO
Our blue cheese with pecans on endive contrasted beautifully with our black marble cheeseboard (available $54.00)
Our vintage wine barrel cover cheeseboards are the perfect start when we are putting together a delicious spread. We have 3 available and currently on sale, both lazy Susan and stationary.
Matt showed us how to put together our own beautiful centerpiece and explained the method behind the art.
Even though there were cancellations due to the rain, we had a great eager turnout.
A beautiful contrast of earthiness and shine. Our linen napkins and pewter napkin rings blend seamlessly. You can see the little mushroom Matt whipped together inside the cloche and on the moss. I clicked this picture after he had removed a couple climbing up the moss. A woodland scene that was my fav!
He explained that he chose the vintage glassware because, although silver and shiny, the leaves decorating the glass kept with the theme....magical! The mushrooms were made with model magic and green covered wire. Moss, pinecones, model magic and wire all found at any craft store.
Our antique pieces mounted on stands added the vertical height Matt spoke of.
The demo turned into a do it yourself!
Carolyn's were beautiful !

I made these decadent pumpkin cheesecake crumble bars for the event too! Heavenly! I was alone with the leftovers this morning and was glad I had to go to work. (I have a problem....can't eat one, have to eat 5!
