We love any excuse to gather around a table with family and friends. And Thanksgiving is the perfect reason to travel to those near and far to celebrate. And while the food prepared for Thanksgiving is obviously given much thought, we’ve learned that the table setting is often an after thought. So today we are sharing some ideas and inspiration on how to set the perfect table for Thanksgiving. Because we think good food tastes better when the decor is pretty- don’t you agree?

We love the idea of using mini pumpkins in the center of the table. They can either be clustered together, lined apart with tags, or even used as name tags for each place setting!

And it is fall after all! Take advantage of the natural beauty by going outside and picking up pine cones, acorns, and leaves- green or colored from the fall!

How do you decorate for Thanksgiving?


We book quickly for holidays, so be sure to start planning & check for pricing today!

Branson is a great place to visit year round, but our favorite time of year might have to be mid August through the holiday season! As fall arrives and the weather begins to cool, the crowds begin to disappear and Branson becomes a travelers paradise! Why you ask? Here are 6 reasons you should visit Branson in the Fall!


  1. Cheaper pricing :: We get it, it’s more common to travel when kids are our of school for summer. But did you know it’s actually A LOT cheaper to travel in August, September and parts of October? And we believe the best teaching experiences for kids can actually be found outside of the classroom on vacation!
  2. Fewer Crowds :: Since most people are back in school, there are far fewer crowds, so it’s easier to get tickets to the best attractions, shows and more! So you get to experience the attractions with fewer people AND usually at discounted rates!
  3. Tourist attractions are all open :: Branson has SO many fun attractions to visit! And during the summer they can often sell out or simply be quite crowded. But August-November are usually pretty quiet and often discounted! Find discounted tickets here!
  4. Restaurants have longer hours :: In the winter many restaurants shorten their hours drastically, but August through the holiday season the restaurants remain open for longer hours! And there are fewer crowds competing for tables!
  5. Lake Days :: We love hot summer days spent on Table Rock Lake, but did you know you can usually enjoy the lake into mid October? We love renting a boat and spending long days on Table Rock Lake in August & September.
  6. Great weather :: Is there anything better than fall weather? Especially in August & September- we love the remaining warmth of the summer sun during the day and the slightly cooler evenings. The weather in Branson from mid August to mid November is usually amazing!

Branson is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the country and we believe it makes the perfect backdrop for a spa retreat!

Traveling can get expensive… we know. So we are doing our best to help you save money wherever possible.
