Even though I didn't arrive at the beach until Thanksgiving morning, I was thrilled to help create the table setting for that afternoon. I planned many DIY projects that I brought down from NYC, but ultimately relied on my mom's gorgeous garden to provide for the table. The moment I stepped off the plane and felt the 70 degree weather, I knew we had to enjoy our meal poolside. I kept it pretty simple, a single hydrangea bloom, a few candles wrapped in burlap, and a new favorite, kumquats! The one DIY project I did end up using were the placecards. I did a miniature sketch of my mom, dad, sister, and myself and tucked them into each person's napkin and tied off with a blue and white string. The look was relaxed and very "us."
