Did you know Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday? I really do love it so much. Cooking is such a passion of mine and I guess you could call Thanksgiving the Superbowl for me. Bring it on! This years table is what I like to call casual elegance. I am so happy with how it turned out and can't wait to share it with my guests. This year there will be 7 of us for dinner and then for dessert a few of my neighbors are stopping by after their guests go home. They always tell me, 'we know we're going to have a great meal if we come to your house'. What a nice compliment from great friends! And in case you're wondering... yes, I cook it all and it brings me so much joy!
The table linens are from Williams-Sonoma. I swear that store is my guilty pleasure. The plates and silverware are from Pottery Barn and the glassware from Crate & Barrel and Macy's.
I did the centerpiece arrangement myself from a few bouquets I purchased at Trader Joe's! Dare I say they had a much better selection than Whole Foods?! You really can't beat their prices either at $5.99 a bouquet! I cut the stems short and arranged them in floral foam in a pedestal bowl to elevate them from the table just a bit. I love the colors and are the perfect accent to my neutral table.
I also love the natural element of the wheat with the kraft paper brown place cards I purchased from Michaels. I used a white gel pen to write each guests name. Thanks for the great idea, Camille
I purchased two new glassybaby votives, one for each end of the table in the color 'sheer cream'. They go so well with any combination, so I know I will get a lot of use out of them throughout the year. I paired them with a few gold mercury glass votives from Michaels.
I have so much to be grateful for this year. I am blessed to have the most amazing family and friends around me, two of the sweetest fur babies a person could ask for, a job I love so much that I can't believe I actually get paid to do every day and for wonderful readers like you who continue to inspire me on a daily basis.
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
