So much thought goes into making a festive Thanksgiving dinner. Starting with the table linen, deciding if you want to use a traditional tablecloth or something a little different. Will you be using nice table runners or place mats to add style to the table? Will you be using the same color cloth napkins to match the tablecloth or another color for contrast?

Once the table is set you can add some cute party favors to further enhance the table. These terra-cotta flowerpot hats from Better Homes and Gardens are perfect!

Fall is a refreshing time of year. The air is crisp and cool and the weather makes you want to go out and take a brisk walk around the neighborhood. Neither too hot nor too cold, Fall is a great opportunity for an outdoor exercise routine. We also tend to sleep better and longer due to the cooler temperatures. We look forward to the upcoming holidays and start preparing for them with gusto.

Start by figuring out who will be joining you for the holiday. Then go over some recipes and prepare a menu. There are so many creative ways to prepare Fall foods such as apples and pumpkins. As a bonus, apples are known to be a natural tooth whitener and can prevent Alzheimer’s.

Pumpkins are fun for carving but pumpkins itself are a natural aphrodisiac. Pumpkins are not just for pumpkin pie; try something different such as pumpkin bread or pumpkin cheese cake. It’s interesting to note that pumpkins were once used to remove freckles and cure snake bites. Wonder if it worked!
