Thanksgiving Table

Happy day-before-Thanksgiving Dabblers! My house is in happy prep-mode today as we our hosting our first Thanksgiving this year. 9 family members and 4 dogs are headed our way :) 

Thanksgiving food is one of my favorite things. Growing up, Thanksgiving always meant quality time spent with my dad and brother  playing football and napping after gorging ourselves on mom's stuffing and cranberries and dad's turkey. I am excited to start some fun new traditions this year while holding the most important parts close- spending time with the people that you love and reflecting about the things that you are grateful for. 

Here is a sneak peak at our Thanksgiving table, cozied up and looking classy in the living room. We are using our actual dining table as the appetizer and dessert landing area. My aunt gifted us this gorgeous orange fabric, which I arranged over simple white table cloths and topped with a burlap runner. 

I am extra excited about hosting this year because it is the perfect occasion to use some of the beautiful things we were gifted for our wedding (3 week anniversary this weekend!) these gorgeous crystal champagne flutes and tumblers. Taking them out makes me do a little happy dance :)

We are using two of our wedding centerpieces on our Thanksgiving table. These were handmade using wood from my family's cabin. I adore them.
A fun way to fold napkins so that they hold all of the utensils. Small pears serve as seating cards and bring some extra color to the table.

Gold pumpkins and corn ears reflecting the light from the the candles.

Have a wonderful holiday Dabblers. I am off to begin pie-making (see this recipe for my Grandma's Perfect 9'' Pie Crust). Pumpkin, apple, and pecan this year :) I am very grateful for the privilege to enjoy this holiday with the people and dogs I love and for the opportunity to share my passion for food with you all.
