Happy long holiday weekend! Has the stuffed feeling from Thursday started to wear off yet? Hope so, because today’s the perfect day for brunching with friends, baking a holiday recipe or two and mainly just savoring the glorious feeling of 2 more days before Monday morning strikes again! We put up our Christmas tree and brought all our decorations down from the attic yesterday, and I’ll be spending today tweaking the details and making a list of any little extras I want to pick up this year. I always try to add one or two special ornaments to our collection, plus an item like a snow globe or wreath, so that I build up our stock slowly over time and only with things we really and truly love. Can you believe the holidays are upon us? What traditions are you most looking forward to reviving? Will you be making any new ones this year? And how are your holiday resolutions coming along? I’d love to hear in the comments, and pretty please stop by tomorrow, because we’ve got an extra-special Sunday post I can’t wait to share (a holiday baking party I threw for friends last week!) You won’t want to miss it, and hope you take some time to enjoy these great links from the past week!

How to set the ultimate (gorgeous) holiday table.

These are on my Christmas cookie to-make list (yep, I have one!)

If I were planning a wedding in Provence, this is exactly how I’d want it to look.

So excited for Roséline’s (the gal behind one of my favorite blogs) beautiful new venture: Belgrave Crescent.

This cutie makes me so excited for when Phoebe’s old enough to “bake” with me.

Trying to decide what to make with those Thanksgiving leftovers? There’s a flowchart for that.

*and a few fun things you may have missed!

Martha Lynn shares all the chic little things she can’t live without.

Cristina talks about translating our inspiration images into reality, without breaking the bank.

Elizabeth gave us a peek behind-the-scenes at one of the prettiest dining spots in town.
