Inspiring Ideas for the Holidays, It is the thought....

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop

I always like to plant greenery that I can clip and use on the table for centerpieces etc.. Ivy is great to clip and simply lay on the table..not even necessarily in an arrangement! Think easy!

Danica scooped out these melon balls from a watermelon over the summer, and I couldn't get over how beautiful they were! Remember that scooping out all kinds of different foods is pretty easy, always gorgeous in a glass or crystal bowl. It's the color that is so effective.

My mom did this at the book launch in Newport Beach, with cold yogurt gaspacho! En masse many things look more elegant than just one would. She used these little plastic square glasses filled with the easiest gaspacho and a little cilantro and it was gorgeous. Think...en masse!

This is WalMart...Yes I love the big super WalMart's! This one was in San Diego. The presentation in placement was seriously gorgeous. I took my camera and my niece, Julia, and my daughter were staying at least one row away from me, as I was flipping out at how beautifully arranged the store was. It was opening and no people had swarmed yet: key!

Simple, totally cheap and darling: writing with chocolate syrup!

My dad's birthday party...my mom used a different color table cloth for each table, each bright and vibrant. During the slideshow I will show it all....very effective! Of course each of her centerpieces matched the tablecloths...

My girlfriend Amy had me over for lunch during the summer, and another friend and she spoils me rotten. I am so thankful for a friend like her. I so appreciate the care and thought she puts into her friends. I just love that girl!

My sister's table above, all paper products, no joke. Gorgeous!

Yes, kids can add to the festivities always... Put anything on a silver platter and it is gorgeous, although these cookies were pretty to start with. Danica did these too!

Of course the best thing about the Holidays is getting friends together! So I leave you with some dear friends, cutting into the Prime Rib I made for them. It was yummy!
I hope to see you on Sunday...

I tell you, the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
