As we grow as a family unit of four, we realize how important it is that we create our own traditions.

But whether you are staying home with your family or hosting a small friends-giving, you are going to want to wow your guests with hospitality, decor and over all creativity. Oh, wait, I just explained how I wow my friends. But if minimalism has captured your heart and ur bills have simultaneously captured your spendings, look no further. Actually, you will have to look below. Let’s start there.

With my newest creation, I pulled out my Target dollar aisle cake stand, my old Halloween pumpkins and finally Rosemary and Eucalyptus from Trader Joes.

The stars were a recent find but I just could’t pass them up since they were a dollar each and can be used all year long! I arranged these items in two different ways:
A great way to arrange a small gathering when there is something (a turkey or main dish) that is to be shown off. Even if you are just serving pie as a desert table, this is an easy, clean set up that allows for little waste and prep time before hand.
