Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas

Thanksgiving table ideas

For his month's Houzz Ideabook, I curated pieces to add to or inspire your Thanksgiving table decor. There are items you can pair together but also ones that can go well with others you may already have at home. Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Check out the full Ideabook here.



Weekend Scenes: Martha's Vineyard

I traveled to Martha's Vineyard last Friday and Saturday for the Food & Wine Festival that my company was a sponsor of. I met with clients, drank some good wine, and explored the island from Vineyard Haven to Edgartown....
It was an early morning departure from the Steamship Authority ferry in Woods Hole (Cape Cod).
My home for the 2 days was The Lightkeepers Inn which was in a great location in Edgartown! I loved the blue doors/window boxes and florals.

This view of Edgartown Harbor needs no filter.
Saturday kicked of with breakfast "among the flowers".
An architect client of mine gave an architecture walking tour of historic Edgartown. Going inside this million door home was amazing!
Be sure to visit Portobello Road if you are in Edgartown. So much John Derian goodness- among other things!
Inside the Grand Tasting tent- wine and food there was!
A harbor full of sailboats in Vineyard Haven was a lovely goodbye to the island.



the Framingham Project

My brother, Kyle Ganson, started a project earlier this year of photographing people who live in our hometown of Framingham, MA.  After months of scouting subjects, shoots, and interviews, he launched the Framingham Project late last month.

Framingham is a unique town in that it's large enough to be a city and has a wide variety of ethnicities and cultures represented.  Kyle sought out to "explore more about its people and places, and convey the story of Framingham through the eyes of the people who live here...[he] photograph[ed] the complexity and diversity of Framingham through portraits of its residents, as well as landscapes of the physical location" (his words are better than mine!)

13 subjects answered the same 5 questions - men and women, older and younger - lending insight into living in Framingham throughout the years, from different backgrounds and experiences.

I may be biased as he is my brother(!), but Kyle really captures the spirit of each individual in a very natural state. 

If you know of those that live in Framingham or live there yourself, Kyle is still looking for subjects! Check out his call for more information.
