Fall Flowers

imageI hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was able to spend the morning with my mom and got a ton of projects done around the house. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, my mind is shifting gears into Christmas. However, I did want to take a moment to share this pretty fall arrangement that I picked up at the grocery store a while back. I am a sucker for a big, happy sunflower!

West Michigan Wednesday: “Accomplice” at Muskegon Civic Theatre

West Michigan Wednesday One of the things I love most about my home is the location! I love living in West Michigan and enjoy many activities around town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that this area has to offer.

“Accomplice” opened last weekend at Muskegon Civic Theatre and continues the run this weekend and next. As always, here is the blurb from the website:

Winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s coveted “Edgar” award (the “Oscar” of crime and suspense) and written by Tony award winner Rupert Holmes, Accomplice has thrilled audiences on Broadway, across the United States and around the word. The New York Times has called it “a deliciously witty cocktail of a whodunit, with pretzel turns in a maniacally seamless plot where skullduggery emerges the winner.” This theatrical roller coaster triggers screams of laughter even as audiences vow to keep its secrets hush-hush. The story begins in Dartmoor, England at the stylish weekend retreat of the affluent Derek and Janet Taylor, where both adultery and murder are in the air. But we soon learn all is never as it seems in this electrifying evening of trickery and misdirection. Who is the hunter and who the hunted…and who is Accomplice’s title character? “The best fooler since Sleuth and twice as clever!” said the L.A. Times. “The comedy thriller of all comedy thrillers!” proclaimed LA Theatre & Entertainment Review.

See Accomplice at the Beardsley Theater! November 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29 December 3, 4, 5,6 2015

Simple Fall Centerpiece

simple thanksgiving centerpiece for fall

Today I’m sharing a really simple fall/Thanksgiving centerpiece. I picked up everything over the past month or so from Target but unfortunately most of the pieces have now gone clearance. However, this would be really easy to recreate with items that you may already have around the house.

gold tray with fall figurines. so pretty for thanksgiving

I love mixing gold, silver, and neutrals for the holidays so this is right up my ally. I started with the mirrored gold tray and added the white pumpkin with gold details, silver pear and the wooden pomegranate figurines. I think it is a really pretty, subtle nod to fall.

The Green Well is a locally owned and operated restaurant located in the East Hills of Grand Rapids. It combines a really cool aesthetic with locally sourced food, eclectic menu,  and a friendly staff. I  tried the veggie pad thai and it did not disappoint! If you’re ever in Grand Rapids be sure to stop by for lunch, dinner, or drinks!
