our thanksgiving table...


Are you ready? Only three days left.
 We LOVE Thanksgiving and are happy to be hosting! 
There's nothing better than spending the day with family, indulging in great food,
 being thankful for our abundant blessings, and indulging again.
Here's a peek at our table, I put it together yesterday so I could share with you...


Remember the fall arrangement I showed you how to put together here,
I was hoping it would make it till Thanksgiving and thanks to a tip from
one of my favorite gardeners, Cindy, who said I should give it some time
 outside in the cool weather here it is...


I wrapped the Pepsi crate in fall colored ribbon, and replaced the
mum in the center with some dead coordinating fall colored leaves for height and texture. 


I made these candles a couple years ago, choose your favorite scrapbook paper,
hot glue it to your candle, and add a few stick-on rhinestones for a little bling.


You've all seen my favorite collection of mix and match wine glasses a few times.
The same ribbon that covers the crate is used for place settings.


I didn't notice that droopy little pansy, if I knew how to photo shop I'd replace it
 with a pretty one in bloom! 




Want to see something funny? Check out my Thanksgiving table from last year here.
I went to check the title of my post, I had completely forgotten what I used,
thankfully most of you probably had too!

If you'd like to check out our menu I posted it last year...
delicious do-ahead menu here.

It looks great, and I did not know you last year, so it is fresh and new....to me. You have such beautiful printing. The candle idea is a really nice touch.

Hi Pam, The last shot is so pretty and inviting, I would love to take my seat! So glad the kales lasted. I love the look of the dried grass foliage added for height. I pinned your menu ideas from last year's post. Bon Appetit has always been one of my favorite go-to sources too.

We travel to Atlanta to have Thanksgiving dinner with my husband's family every year so I never prepare a Thanksgiving dinner. I do a ton of set up and clean up though to help my sister in law's because it is usually 80-100 people! Most of the ladies bring dishes. This year, it has been decided to keep it to just family so the number should end up around 60! Family trees in Indian culture have many branches! We prefer quiet gatherings but we go with the flow when we are there. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

I love that last photo Pam - I can see you and your family getting the meal started with the sun setting in the background. I'm always thinking of you as I'm scattering to put something seasonal together on our table. Your tablescapes are always so pretty. BHG girl, BHG. :) I was also thinking of you as I published my post last night. Thanks as always for your support.

So glad we got a room shot! Your chairs look great and your dining room is coming together so beautifully. Glad your centerpiece made it. Something as simple as turning your square plates on the diagonal made such an interesting difference. Pretty table!
