The December Monthly Must-Haves
With many families forced to celebrate Thanksgiving locally this year, traditions and the comfort of homemade pie look a little different. We tagged along with our Co-Founder, Jocelyn, as we practiced setting the table, cooking her mom's famous recipes with her kids, and making the best of a perfectly imperfect looking holiday.
“ An explosion of fall colors was the inspiration for this tablescape. The beautiful prints and pops of cranberry will be a welcomed distraction if the turkey is overcooked and I love our new collection of Estelle colored glasses. Find the Fun Tip: I always set the table with festive crackers for the kids to pop as an icebreaker. ”
“ Every good chef, and not so good chef, spends the morning prepping. My aunt Betsy’s cheese dip is a decadent family favorite! Tip: I love this Juliska dip tray, because you can actually bake the dip directly in the oven and serve… don’t forget the melba toasts. ”
“ Mid-day time out for a hearty football and lacrosse break… Layers and these Sorel boots that feel like jogging shoes are key to success on the field! ”
“ This year a classic shirt dress, gorgeous boots and belt that can expand with each course is what I’m wearing to Thanksgiving. A pop of wild gold earrings is the perfect accessory. ”
“ My mom’s famous pumpkin ice cream pie is the grand finale to every Thanksgiving. This recipe is a hit from young to old… just make it far enough in advance for it to freeze… or it may look a tad runny, like mine… oops! ”
“ Gathering with family in gratitude for all we have feels like a true gift this year… even if it’s smaller or less perfect than normal. I’m feeling more thankful for all I have and will do my best to find the funny in the little mistakes… like a goopy pie on a beautiful dish. ”
