You know what is completely overwhelming? Hosting a major holiday for the first time. Kevin and I are traveling to New York to spend Thanksgiving with his family this year, but I’m planning on hosting a Thanksgiving meal for some of my family in Kentucky on another day.
We are so excited to finally have space for entertaining, but given that we haven’t been able to in the past… we are definitely lacking in some of the basics we need for hosting.
If you’re like us and plan to host a holiday meal for the first time this year, check out my tips and tricks below. I’ve done all the overanalyzing so that you don’t have to! Haha.

I decided to offer them up to my Instagram friends (follow me here if you don’t already!)
I had probably 30 of you DM me within the first 5-10 minutes of posting the IG story asking for the free box. First of all, you ladies really ARE my tribe…. y’all love free stuff as much as I do and I love it! Second, I was bummed I couldn’t share more with you because everyone was so excited to try it.

After what seemed like 17 months of winter, we’re FINALLY seeing some gorgeous spring temperatures in Kentucky! We’ll be in the 70’s next week, and I am excited to have my adorable spring wreath on the door!
An awesome wreath and door mat are key to creating a welcoming first impression for your guests. Mine was a gift from my mom – AKA she had it on her door, I loved it and she gave it to me. Her generous gift inspired me to share my top 10 favorite wreaths with you below. The best part is that they’re ALL from Amazon, so you don’t even need to leave home to get your favorite!
