Loosen the rules for your traditional Thanksgiving dinner with thoughtful touches.
Leave the warty gourds and marshmallow side dishes on the kiddie table. When it comes to creating a Thanksgiving celebration with romance, throw some unexpected details into your holiday preparation. At the Ramos House Café in San Juan Capistrano, California, owner John Humphreys creates a memorable setting that has vintage appeal.
A fall setting of harvest pies is crowned by an ethereal arrangement of hydrangeas and feathers.
A bright mix of exotic blooms is a lively contrast to the rural wood siding of the patio walls. Unexpected elements like this add visual punch and create dynamic vignettes.
