A Festive Table Setting

It was so nostalgic to break out my sewing machine after years of being zipped up in its carrying case. When I unearthed it from the dusty corners of my closet, it was like a visitation from an old friend — one who had seen me through some of the best, and hardest, years of my life.

Art school was not for the faint of heart, and my Bernina was a trusty sidekick. She staid up with me during my all nighters, working equally as hard to churn out my senior Fashion projects. The old girl deserves some love, and some much overdue maintenance, but she pulled through for me yet again...this time, by helping me sew some quick projects on fabric I designed!

From my Thrive collection, I selected two of my favorite patterns to be printed digitally onto Kona Cotton. I think I literally leapt for joy when my fabric package arrived in the mail! I was naturally inspired by the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, so created a beautiful place setting featuring my custom fabrics. It's such a wonderful way to add a personal touch to the table decor.

Let me know what your plans are for Thanksgiving this year. Are you hosting family, or perhaps orchestrating a "friendsgiving?" As per Yamada tradition, we're watching "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and having some family friends over. I'm also trying my hands at a new vegetable dish featuring butternut squash. Wish me luck!

  1. I had never heard of Spoonflower before, but it looks like a really cool website! I love your table setting, especially the napkin and name tag. I hope your butternut squash dish turned out yummy. I LOVE the idea of a Friendsgiving! Have you seen "Parks & Recreation"? In two of the episodes on the day before Valentine's Day she hosts a Galentines Day party for all her girlfriends, whether they are in a relationship or single. That looked fun!
