Oh my God! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week! I love this Holiday don’t you? Friends, food, family & “No Gifts Please” Perfect!
Even the decorating is easy. A few things I like to do:

Make Place Cards out of leaves. Take a fall leaf (I like magnolia or dogwood because they keep their shape) Write the guests name on it with a paint pen in silver or gold.

Take those mini pie pumpkins scoop a little out of the top & insert a taper candle. Make a line of them down the center of the table for a fantastic centerpiece. You can also use larger pumpkins for soup tureens or to hold flowers.

I sometimes use old fashioned burlap as a table cloth. It’s pretty, rustic and fall foliage looks great against it. You can pick up a remnant at any fabric store for cheap!

“Now there’s something a girl could make sacrifices for!” So said MARILYN MONROE in “All About Eve” MM was referring to a sable coat, but since she did feel that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” she would have loved the little bauble above. The gem is an 84.37 carat white diamond that was sold today at Sotheby’s for just under $16.2 million. It is the largest top-quality, brilliant-cut white diamond ever to appear at auction. And the winning bid came from GEORGES MARCIANO, founder of the GUESS clothing company! I knew ANNA NICOLE SMITH sold a lot of jeans for them but do people still wear GUESS?? I guess they do!

There’s a terrifically bitchy article in this month’s VANITY FAIR by MAUREEN (Mrs. Tim Russert) ORTH about “WHEN WASHINGTON WAS FUN” The magazine is still a pain in the ass with about 800 pages of ads & pullouts & pop-ups. But Orth’s article is worth the trip.
In addition to swipes at the current administration, it reviles the Clinton's crassness & the Carter’s boring restraint. Orth introduces one poor billionairess, BETH DOZORETZ as the biggest social climber since WALLIS SIMPSON. This lady is apparently so “beyond the pale” as to cause CATHERINE, LADY MEYER, wife of the former British Ambassador to sniff: “Poor Beth. She did try to invite us all the time.” It’s delicious…read it!
