Posted by Paige Thomas ~ November 17, 2008

November, for me, means one thing: Thanksgiving! The food, the friends, the wine, and of course, the assortment of delicious pies.

Nothing makes Thanksgiving more enjoyable than the perfect space to enjoy it in. This week we'll look at ideas, both big and small, for making the most of your dining room.
