Quick Decorating Tip

Just a reminder ladies:

When decorating your house for Thanksgiving, think simple and elegant.

"Understated" and "subtle" will convey an aura of sophistication that so perfectly compliments this treasured holiday.

Watch out.
I know of a Pilgrim that has a big ol' shotgun strapped to his chest. He'll throw some toast in GuardPoodle's bowl to distract him and then take that turkey out no problem.

Jen said...

LOL! We bought our first "inflatable" this Halloween. We had sworn that we never would but they are just so cute... However, I think an 8 foot tall turkey would scare the crap out of the kids. Especially a gun totin turkey!

Miss Yvonne said...

Oooh, classy!

Thanks for the tip. I was afraid my crepe paper pilgrims were a bit too much. Now I can see I haven't gone far enough.

Heinous said...

That's a black tie affair all the way. All. The. Way. Baby.

Ali said...

Inflatable turkey poolside, inflatable turkey on the beach, inflatable turkey window shopping...I can see another popular series here!

As long as it deflates and stores flat, I'm in!!

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

Thanks, Martha, I'll try and remember that when I'm shopping for my decorations at Home Depot...

Swirl Girl said...

Most of us put that kind of stuff out on the front lawn...but to each their own!

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

Once again I am in awe of the mad Thanksgiving decorating skills being shown on the blogosphere. First it was McMommy's musket wielding pilgrim, now it's HappyHour Sue's light/blow-up turkey. I bow to the greatness.

Cathie said...

Um you have a tom in your living room! I always seem to be late on the inflatable purchases.

The Hussy Housewife said...

I think he is kinda sexy Might try to copulate with him after a drinks. We could have Turkey Nuggets..much more healthy.

Leslie said...

That's the biggest turkey I've ever seen!!! (That's what she said...giggle, giggle)

Is that flat Joe in a turkey costume??? I'm typing with about two cocktails in my system....I know, I'm a weenie. Everything looks life-size right now...

jaime said...

these comments are just as funny as that pic! not much more too say. yup, leaves me speechless.

Gobble gobble!

Jill said...

LOve it!! Are you feeling any better???

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

Okay, I can't decide if that turkey is a relative of Homer Simpson, or if he is just the most demented, don't-eat-me-or-you'll-get-salmonella-poisoning looking turkey ever. But, I must say, very classy and understated.

:-)

Lovin' it! Reminds me of our Halloween inflatable my folks bought us and it's a witch humping ( I mean, sitting on) a pumpkin. At least that's what it looks like to me. And my neighbors.

At least the turkey is standing alone. Safer that way.

Threeboys1mommy said...

So fancy! My grocery store has one of those standing next to a crate of pumpkins, Tre chic!

schnaarzy said...

Is that Bill? Shut up!!!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

I think they have the same bird in Emily Post's home ;)

Rachel said...

I love it!

Tiffany said...

LMAO And people call ME redneck? At least mine is in the front yard. haha

Tenakim said...

That's where I would have to put mine since my outdoor electricity crosses over a sidewalk- and that would just be classless with cords everywhere!

Jen said...

really that won't look good in my house. I had one all ready to go.

Linda S said...

I was seriously hoping you got that out of our neighbors yard. And you could take the other two huge pumpkins and turkey while you are at it. mkaythnksbye

Geri said...

I like your style. Let's see Martha Stewart try to pull that off at her Thanksgiving dinner!

nikkicrumpet said...

HAR HAR SNORT HAR HAR....I've never been that subtle...thanks for the tip!!

Brittany said...

Any excuse to get rid of this pesky flabby neck skin I keep toting around.

♥ spoiled mommy ♥ said...

Uh isnt that suppose to be outside?
And where is Joe, how come he isnt there w/Mr Turkey?

Hahaha!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Ooooh. Me likey! We have a life sized Santa that dances and sings and we can do karaoke through him!
You and me have KLASSY taste, girl!

Maricriss said...

Ah yes pure sophistication ..lol. It's great!!

Deb said...

I like it, but it would look better with Mr. Jonas standing with him.

Greta said...

my kids would have that thing deflated in minutes

Dorsey said...

I think I'd just add a simple string of pearls around his neck..for that homey June Cleaver look. Though I guess a Cleaver might make him nervous...HA!

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

Left you a present on my last post...

Shieldmaiden96 said...

Somewhere...Martha Stewart's eye is twitching. And she doesn't know why.

BacktoBarnwell said...

No shit... I bet my inflatable reindeer can kick your turkey's ass... Let's register them for the UFC.

AND Hahahaha at Tiffany's comment. Ours is up on the balcony, for the golfers to play target practice with when the eggnog begins to set in.

Aria said...

Sue, I've got a Thanksgiving mojito for you... Ok, not really, but I do have three awards for you over on my blog http://ariazink.blogspot.com
Congrats!

Loveable Loser said...

Oh Thank God, the Turkey Diaries has come to a pleasant ending.
All dressed for Dinner and at the table not on it.

Concerned also about the Crystal Meth thing...my 15 year old confirmed the cold medicine thing.

Happy Thanksgiving

Sarah said...

VERY understated! My animals would be terrified of it!

Jennifer said...

That turkey is the essence of understated elegance!!

Annie said...

You are linked on my blog now for shopping! Hoping some bloggers need your blogger gear! :)

Caroline said...

Nothing says Happy Thanksgiving like a blow up turkey!

Anna Lefler said...

I know you swiped that from Martha Stewart's lawn. Right ON.

BTW, I just gave you a shout-out over at my "pad"...

Have a fabulous and inflatable Thanksgiving!

Makes me want to do every holiday in my home over this year just so I can re-think my decorations and consider inflatables... haha
