I started planning and prepping for our big Thanksgiving Dinner today!
This year will mark my 5th year hosting Thanksgiving . . . and I couldn't be more excited!
I thought it would be fun to share this post from last year's Dinner, as I hope that it inspires your table setting.
I'm in the works of planning this year's table setting . . . and I hope I have enough time to take a few photos next Tuesday, and share them before Thanksgiving. I'm excited about this year's table, as I'm planning to incorporate a little Christmas greenery with the pumpkins and Fall fare, which will be a first for me.
If you're hosting Thanksgiving Dinner this year too, then I know you're busy as well!
Wishing you lots of inspiration and smooth planning and preparations!

Lauren (our youngest) and I ventured South to buy more pansies for our Thanksgiving centerpiece this year. While selecting our pansy colors, I spotted several rows of kale, purple and white/green . . . and thought that they would look pretty with our pansies, so I bought several heads of white and green kale.
We bought beautiful Fall colors . . . rich burgundy, orange, and deep purple.
I thought it would be fun to share a small sampling of what our Thanksgiving table will look like this year.
I took these photos just before potting some of them, so that I could get an idea of which ones needed to be planted in taller pots. I can't wait to see them ALL on our Thanksgiving table with more long-stemmed freckled pumpkins, twinkling tea lights, and formal, white place settings.
This year's table setting is quite different from years past, as this year's colors are much brighter and cheerier. I'm excited to celebrate this side of Fall on our table.
I plan on planting the pansies and kale in our garden after Thanksgiving, so that we can continue to enjoy them through the holidays.
How will you be decorating your table this year?
LET'S STAY in touch!
