Displaying Photos Around the Holidays

I am very fortunate to have family pictures handed down to me, spanning many generations from my mom’s side of the family. In the future, I have big plans to frame them all, place them under glass trays and preserve their legacies. But for the Thanksgiving season, I thought it would be great to have them out on display, where everyone can see and appreciate them. At this busy time of year, when we are starting the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s nice to sit back, remember family members both past and present and appreciate all the love that surrounds us. I would love to take you down memory lane today and show you some beautiful pictures that will be out on display at our house, this Thanksgiving…

When my kids were toddlers, I definitely wouldn’t have put out this display. The pictures would have ended up all over the house and in someone’s mouth. But now that the kids are bigger, they can understand when to be more gentle with fragile things. Before this arrangement, the pictures were tucked away inside my drawer. We can now look through and enjoy these wonderful memories, while they await their proper location in the house. Looking through these photos definitely reminds me how much I have to be thankful for!


  1. How nice that those photos are out where everyone can see them! Such a great idea!

  2. I love this idea Amber! It feels so casual but still organized!

  3. I love having something like this so tactile and personal and the wood bowl looks so perfect for the display. I really need to organize my photos better!

  4. I love this idea. What a great conversation starter at Thanksgiving too!

  5. What a great idea! And good for memory stories, especially around the holidays! Those are copies, right? 😉

  6. Thanks for your comments! :) Hi Andrea- they are actually the originals and not copies. But I am ok with that, since they won't be out for long. I have big plans soon, to put them all in frames and display them in a more permanent place. Thanks for reading! :)
