Our Thanksgiving Table
This year we will celebrate Thanksgiving at my parents' house. I went over yesterday to help mom wrap up a few things and get the table prepared.
We pooled our accessory resources and the only thing we purchased was a new round of candles. The green Bordallo chargers, napkin rings and bunches of wheat are mine, and everything else came from shopping Mom's house.
The centerpiece is an old silver tray filled with moss, pine cones, and a mixture of gold and silver candlesticks. We gathered the moss while in the mountains for Fall Break.
Mom and Dad picked up a set of antlers on that trip to New Mexico. I worked them into the table setting. If you read this post you know I want more of my own!
I love to use Mom's classic "Friendly Village" pattern for Thanksgiving. I think it mixes so well with the green chargers which add some color to the neutral-ish Fall palette.
The Kids' Table:
I went super simple here, knowing that any decoration would only get in their way! The table is covered with butcher paper, place mats are drawn on with marker, and cups of crayons are waiting in the center. They can create a masterpiece while they dine!
Well, at least one thing is ready for Thursday! Now I just need to make a pecan and chocolate pie, cut out, bake, and frost sugar cookies, and make homemade rolls in the next 24 hours. Oh, and take care of 2 children and do laundry and finish up some last minute grocery shopping.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
