Our Thanksgiving Table

This is my 1st year hosting Thanksgiving dinner, and if we are being honest, it has consumed my mind and energy for far longer than I would like to admit. While Gracis and some of our other guests have repeatedly told me that a pretty table doesn’t matter, to me it is everything and I have been on the search for the perfect tablescape on a major budget. Okay maybe it is not everything but a good table really sets the mood for the evening, and this is a big evening… MY FIRST THANKSGIVING PEOPLE… When we were registering for our wedding registry the best piece of advice I received was “Register like you are hosting Thanksgiving Dinner” Although I never thought it would be this year, I carefully followed the advice. When I envisioned my future Thanksgiving table it was  a classical ascetic. This desire led me to register for elegant everyday plates that could be mixed and matched with  basic enough to be a kitchen staple, but with enough personality to really give it that wow factors. I personally cannot wait to bring out this serving bowl, one of my favorite wedding gifts, for that added pop.

Using my everyday plates and flatware, while utilizing my white paper pumpkins and autumn leaves purchased for Halloween. I only had to add a few key festive accent pieces- que the Turkeys- and a set of linen napkins ( totaling a whole $33 dollars). Overall, I am really happy with how it turned out… now back to studying Turkey Basting Techniques!

Wish Me Luck !
