We are not hosting Thanksgiving this year (soft little "yay!") so I thought I'd post a photo of our table from two years ago. Little pie pumpkins covered in Martha's ultrafine glitters with brown painted stems, red velvet table runner, berry garland, gold velvet placemats and autumnal candles. Really simple, but pretty. Oh, when I set tables ahead of time I always turn the glasses upside down. That way nothing gets in them and you don't have anyone saying, "something is floating in my drink."
We are going to my aunt and uncle's house for Thanksgiving this year and everyone is bringing something. I am taking some roasted vegetables (carrots, leeks, brussel sprouts - tossed in EVOO, kosher salt and pepper, baked until browning but crisp) and a chocolate dessert. Where are you spending Thanksgiving?
My goal of freeing more of my time, tending to my blessings, and saying "no" is sooooo hard, but it is really working. Yesterday I had time to spend a few hours in the garage, organizing, labeling, and throwing a few things out. It felt so good just to have the time to do that, knowing I didn't have a deadline looming. I think as I declutter my mind I'm also wanting to declutter my surroundings. Hoping to work in some scrapbooking soon. :)
Have a sweet day!
