Hello readers! Crissie here, back with some more tabletop inspiration...

This week's hostess isn't afraid to take risks, that much was clear the moment she opened the door in that stunning one-shouldered Marchesa number, and it didn't stop there.

For this, the grandest of fall meals she chose to throw a playful twist at the traditional color palette. Isn't a little shock of lavender just what the holiday table needs to keep the family smiling?

And whoever said she'd only be able to wear her lilac eyelet Brian Atwood heels in the spring is most certainly eating their words right along with their turkey.

Cheers to shaking up traditions (and a few martinis, of course) and to a wonderful Thanksgiving for all!
