LOOK BOOK NOVEMBER 2023
OH SO BLESSED!
I can hardly believe it's already November.
Time is flying by so fast. Do you feel the same way? Is it really moving faster or is it the anticipation of the holidays that is making it seem like time is flying by?
With the mall and Instagram focusing on Christmas already - I'm excited to celebrate all my many blessings this lovely month of gratitude and thanksgiving. I love that this holiday comes at the end of the year - giving us the opportunity to reflect over the past few months.
Your November box invites you to focus on your many blessings. In colors as varied yet cohesive as your blessings, this month's bundle is sure to compliment all your gatherings and family feasts. With ribbons in felt and a garland of seemingly insignificant scraps, and a ribbon bow to tie it all together. I hope you think of your blessings each time you walk past your bundle on display . . . and know that I count you as one of my blessings!
I will be putting my bundle up on my kitchen counter as the kitchen continues to be the hub of all activity in my home. I will also be displaying it with an empty jar and some slips of paper and a bouquet of sharpened pencils - in the hope of getting my adult children to take a minute while microwaving or filling a water bottle, to write just one little blessing they can store in the jar to count over our thanksgiving dinner.
I love the little scrap garland - I did this a while ago for Spring - so I thought it went well with this month's bunting. It's scrappy and colorful - with a lot of warm creamy scraps to brighten everything up. I will show you below the best way to string them up to enhance your bunting.
You may have noticed too, that your letters this month are not white but cream - a first for me. I usually love the bright white, but these colors seemed to be softened by the cream letters. Soft and cozy - that's what this seasonal transition calls for.
I hope you like the little ribbon with pumpkin center - I had the pumpkins on hand and hoped to use them this month - so glad I found the perfect ribbon too!
Here's another idea for you - gather all the framed photos of your family and friends and place them all on a table or, on your piano, as I have done here. Then drape your BLESSED bunting in front of all those wonderful blessings. Here I've used the little mini Party Posts which I love - they are perfect for draping like this.
I've cut my ribbons in half and have hung them here and there from some of my frames - taking the color up and into the display. The ribbons are fun to use in so many different ways - add them here and there - have fun with them.
The little bow with pumpkin is just placed on the Party Post - and could go anywhere really - I like it next to that beautiful terracotta color so I put it there at the front of the bunting.
I could keep this display up all November - to remind me of all my little blessings! Taking this photo also reminds me that it's probably time to take and frame some pictures of my blessings all gown up! Another good reason to have a RED LETTER DAY BOX arrive every month - helping you to review and update your decor and find the spots that need updating or improvement!
Have fun with this box - it sure was fun to put together for you!
