How will you be celebrating Thanksgiving? Do you have to travel or divide your time between two different families to keep it "fare?" We do! We alternate each year between my parent's house and Jim's parent's house. On the "off" year of it being at my parent's house my mom insists on us coming over for leftovers that night! (Luckily, both sides of our family are in town.) Trust me, we love it but we sure are full! This year I guess we will have to endure being full because we are having Thanksgiving at Jim's parents house. She sure can set a mean table…and I mean that in the best way possible…make sure you scroll to the bottom just so you can get a feel for it!
One of these years I want to host Thanksgiving! I want my children to wake up to those glorious smells that I remember as a child!
I want to set a "mean" table and have fun with the decorations! I've loved pinning so many of these and have so many great ideas in my head!
These are actually the plates that I have and my mother and my mother in law have them as well!
I guess I'm taking after my mother and wanting to have all of my children over so I'm actually making a traditional Thanksgiving meal on Monday just because I want to! Miller is home for 9 glorious days and Holly and Brad will arrive tomorrow night. And I can always lure Mitch, Britney and Layton over for a good meal!
There are so many different ways to set your table for Thanksgiving. Some like it casual,
Others, a little bit of drama!
Some keep it simple...
And some a bit more elaborate!
Some like it even a little rustic! This is so charming!
I love the details that are not hard to do but make all the difference in the setting! Simple oak leaves,
or small pumpkins!
I'm crazy about this wheat tied up with a beautiful ribbon on the back of the chairs!
And I love the use of amber colored plates! I use a lot of amber all year long.
No matter how you like your Thanksgiving Table set, the important thing is to be together with family and maybe even friends and enjoy being thankful for all that we are blessed with!
This is how we will celebrate this year…two beautifully decorated tables definitely on the more elegant side at my wonderful "In laws" house!
I hope it never changes!
I love the traditions we share with each of our families and I'm very thankful for that!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week during this Thanksgiving Holiday season! Just think…right after that we can dive head first into Christmas!
