Setting the Thanksgiving Table: My Own Table

We’re celebrated Thanksgiving early this year (yesterday!) because our family is leaving tomorrow….we’ve been calling it fakes-giving.  So, I thought I would share a few little snippets of my own table.  I spent the day cooking with my darling sister-in-law and we were racing the fading sunlight to snap photos of the table.

  1. Looks beautiful! I spray painted my gourds and mini pumpkins in gold last year. Gold spray paint does wonders in all the nooks and crannies.
