Thanksgiving can be a season of pastry, not poultry, which is what drew us to this fab party by Sunny at Sunny By Design. (Harvest-season ramekins?! We’re sold.) Sunny coupled a soulful Thanksgiving gathering with an upbeat bon voyage party for her departing military friend (and with chocolate!)—a combination that had her attendees thanking their lucky stars for Sunny herself. Courtesy of We Heart Parties, check out this slideshow for every autumnal detail.

Sunny recently discovered this beautiful apothecary jar (score! we’re jealous!), so she filled it with chestnuts that she gathered at her property. We think that our own little “squirrels” would do a darn fine job hunting chestnuts.
