Five on Friday: {November 21, 2014}

Happy Friday Gals! Another week down, and now we are officially less than a week away from Thanksgiving!  I absolutely love Thanksgiving and everything that goes along with it, so today I’m devoting my five favorites of the week to all things Thanksgiving!  Hope you have a fab weekend ahead and are as excited for Turkey Day as I am!

1| Favorite Recipes

I think we can all agree that the sides are the very best part of the Thanksgiving meal, so these incredible recipes have me salivating just looking at them! I can't wait to indulge in plenty of stuffing and squash this year!

2| Favorite Wine Pick

Another reason I love Thanksgiving – it’s not only completely acceptable to break out the wine at like noon, it’s practically a requirement (or is that just at my family’s table?!)  My favorite pick is Casal Garcia Vinho Verde.  It has a slight fizz to it that can be best described as effervescent, along with being super crisp, light and refreshing, and a lower alcohol content – basically the perfect starter for a day filled of indulging!  Oh, and in case you aren’t completely sold, it’s only $5.99 a bottle! 

3| Favorite Outfit Choices

I love getting dressed up for holiday, but since Thanksgiving is all about the food, I like going with a more comfortable choices, and jazzing up with fun accessories!  This Thanksgiving, I have my eye on a luxurious silk tunic, with a furry vest, and paired with tuxedo leggings, gold flats, and a fun necklace and leopard clutch.

4| Favorite Song Selection
It’s been a while since I’ve shared my mixy picks with everyone, but having good dinner music is must in my book for Thanksgiving!  We keep it low, so everyone can enjoy good conversation around the dinner table, but great music just helps to enhance the mood.  For me, it’s all about the mellower, more soulful picks, with a healthy smattering of some Christmas music, since the season officially starts the next day!  My must play picks for this year include some Sam Smith, Ellie Golding, Michael Buble (including his Christmas album - duh!), One Republic, Jason Mraz, Van Morrison, and Elton John.  Does anyone else factor in music to their Thanksgiving planning?

5| Favorite Tablescape

This year we are not hosting, which just means that I’m able to design my dream table in my head, which is perfect since it’s much cheaper that way!  If I was hosting, I'd love to do a gold and silver sparkle table, with glitzy pumpkin accents.  I love the golden wine goblets, and the touch of glitz from the chargers.
