Gathering Around a Thanksgiving Table
There us not likely a holiday more focused on a meal than Thanksgiving. I hope you have the opportunity to gather around a Thanksgiving table with family or friends this coming week. I am happy to once again be joining Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home as she hosts a Thanksgiving Blog Hop. If you need any more inspiration on celebrating Thanksgiving next week, this is the place to be!
If you are coming from First Day of Home, welcome! Don’t you love a good charcuterie board?
You know it doesn’t matter if there are two at your Thanksgiving meal or twenty. It doesn’t matter if you have turkey or hot dogs. I will gather at this table with my husband, my parents and a friend. It may not be on Thanksgiving day, but we will give thanks for our all of our blessings.
Setting a pretty table may be what I do, but does it matter if you dine on paper plates? No, it doesn’t. I made this fresh flower table runner for this table, but on Thanksgiving day it may be a lot simpler at my house. If you want to see how to create a centerpiece like this, you can visit How to Make a Table Runner Centerpiece.
When I went to set this table, I discovered these pretty pumpkin salad plates in my cupboard. I don’t even remember buying them, but it might have been last year.
Notice two different kinds of napkin rings. I was setting the table for six, but only had four of each of these napkin rings. Mix and match is always okay, right?
These copper wine glasses are some of my favorites, they really add sparkle to any table.
The green water goblets were a gift to my mother some 50 years ago! I have used them so many times, and enjoy getting them out and remembering their provenance. My standby Ikea flatware is always a good choice at this time of year. Will you be setting a pretty table for Thanksgiving? I might just be on the road from Maryland back to Florida. Wherever the holiday finds you, may you be blessed to share a meal with those you love. Now it is time to visit Calypso in the Country to see what Thanksgiving inspiration she is sharing!
