I know! I know! Thanksgiving was on Thursday and why do you ask am I blogging about Thanksgiving entertaining ideas you COULD have used days ago? Well, if you are one of my loyal Instagram followers, you would know that each and every photo makes sense…an appetizer, side and pies on Monday and Tuesday…decor and an activity on Wednesday and Thursday…what to do with leftovers on Friday. I am continuing with my Pinterest obsession this week and it is all about food & decor being that it is the week of Thanksgiving!
If you’ve been one of my loyal blog followers, you know that we publish these image roundups weekly. We usually feature a particular event for a particular client so you can go deep on the particular theme. This week, however, we focused on food and decor so you can get some ideas for holiday entertaining. If you know what’s up, skip this part, new visitors, take a look below…
In case you missed it, here’s what we’re doing, mentioned in the first blog (and if you already know what’s going on, skip to the first photo!): Every day we’re posting event photos & inspiration to my Instagram page to give you ideas for your own events, and of course, encourage you to hire yours truly, one of the top party planners in Los Angeles for your next soiree! In terms of format, we’re trying to capitalize on the whole hashtag calendar world and take advantage of #WeddingWednesday (#WW) and #ThrowbackThursday (#TBT) by posting wedding photos and cool stuff we’ve done on Wednesdays and on Thursdays, harkening back to a past client’s event, be it a celebrity, or just one of us tastemakers.
