Thanksgiving resource of IDEAS, MENUS, and TABLE SETTINGS


Tie your apron on, 
work hard for a bit 
(because it's good to work hard!) ;) 
Live in beauty, 
gather with family, 
taste your blessings, 
and appreciate our abundance. 

Focusing on just a few details
creates unforgettable holidays,
wrapped with lots of love of course.



I put all the Thanksgiving ideas from my blog in one place...



A collection of traditional Thanksgiving food, full of homemade goodness.






 This menu is a healthy alternative for Thanksgiving!





Don't forget the sweet little people with ideas here and here



  Setting the table for Thanksgiving is one of my favorite parts of this holiday!  This past table is lined with white pumpkins and muted tones to add peace and lots of texture for the colder months. 

 


This Thanksgiving table variation is accented with deep plum, the under-used color of fall.  The mustard colored plates are lined with farmhouse chicken wire chargers for a cozy, homey warmth. 


I will soon be sharing our new Thanksgiving tablescape for this season. 
Our family gets to take a tiny getaway to a beautiful place for the holiday,
but since I {double} love setting seasonal tables,
and celebrating gatherings, 
we will be enjoying some turkey at home FIRST. ;)

This looks like a great Thanksgiving collection. I love the kiddos' table. The Mayflower and the turkey placemats are so cute.
This year for Thanksgiving my entire family is going on a mini vacation to Branson. So we will be having Thanksgiving dinner at the Dixie Stampedee.
Have a great weekend!
