The Perfect Un-Turkey Day

Hello all! Ready for Turkey Day? Well I would say yes, but I'm a vegetarian! I so look forward to the magic of marshmellow gooey yams coated with brown sugar, green bean casseroles, and as I was reminded today the best cranberry sauce ever from Artisan Photography ( becoming one of my favorite traditions I might add!) So whats a veggie to do with all the Blah shades of brown so thuroughly used in fall decor? It doesnt at all compliment the many shades of my meals that's for sure!! Well, let's discuss the ideas on the UN-TURKEY DAY CELEBRATION.
I'd go with a delightful apple theme! Shades of bright vibrant green apple with details in cranberry reds! And you know Im talking apple martini party and not apple cider!

Lets talk about the finer points here:
1. Start with a apple lamour linen or damask apple linen from BBJ Linen.
2. Then add your red chargers. You can get these from M2B.
3. Add your centerpeice selection. There are options here:
    a. Use a teired cookie tray like this one at Sur La Table and layer textures using xmas ornaments.
    b. Get cylinders from Micheals and fill with cranberries and floating candles.
    c. Same premise, but instead of candles use flowers in shades of red.
4. Add red glass votives.
5. Click here for a great Apple Martini recipe! Sugar rim your glasses with red sugar!
6. Tie your napkins with ribbon or wrapping wired gift ribbon.
Cheers to all of you who are celebrating a very UN-TURKEY DAY in style!
