Oookkkaaaay! So Thanksgiving is just a few days away! I may have had a mini panic attack just thinking of all the things I still have to get done. I wish I had more hours in the day and more energy! I’ll get it together and get it done though. I always do!
There’s really not THAT much to do. All I need is a table and a Turkey with all the sides and dessert…easy right? Well…a little more than that.
I have the table setting at least. Which is a big part of it. Nothing too fancy but a little prettier than paper plates and plastic forks. Which is TOTALLY fine! I am not above using those things because believe me, if you know me, then you know that doing dishes is my arch nemesis. Seriously, I literally run away from a sink full of dirty dishes. I’ll fold a million towels any day…Haha
If you have a large crowd. Paper and plastic is definitely the way to go but with a small group of 6-10 people won’t be that much clean up. Especially if you have some help.
So here’s what I did…
I love this room because it is so open and bright. The perfect space for entertaining. I wanted the tablescape to be very simple and pretty. I don’t typically do this but for holidays I love it. My centerpiece is a piece of wood that I salvaged from an old bench my Dad gave to me that unfortunately could not be saved. Some milk glass candle holders given to me by my Mother in-law and a few stick pumpkins and orbs that I’ve had for years. I added some new linen napkins and wine glasses. The flowers were just a last minute touch because I love to add them wherever I can. It’s super simple, inexpensive and works perfectly here. Combining old and new elements in your design makes such a cozy and relaxed space for you celebrate and enjoy with your guests.
Thanks for reading and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
