I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, or those of you from the US, anyway. We hosted dinner this year and it was a lot of fun; we had a small group so it wasn’t too stressful. We had to borrow some seating and the plates and glasses didn’t all match but I kind of liked it that way. And we got to really put our new kitchen to the test. One slightly over-cooked turkey later…
I made my first pumpkin pie and I don’t think anyone left hungry. Success.
I had fun planning the table setting…I finally had an excuse to polish up my gold flatware and pull out the candlesticks that we got for our wedding! I rescued the old board from Reid’s burn pile and my family sent the flower arrangement that perfectly finished off the look.
I had an extra bunch of rosemary so I dressed up the empty plates with a sprig tied with hemp rope.
Pinterest came in handy and I found this free printable banner by The TomKat Studio.
I think setting a table might be my new favorite thing to do. I really should do it more often…no need to wait for a holiday, right?
And now it’s officially the Christmas season….and then comes a baby. Gulp. I’m so ready but also not ready at all…32 weeks and counting! My to-do list is probably taller than I am.
Oh, and I am planning on doing more farmhouse updates but I’ll probably do it by room, as we get them finished. We have two light fixtures hanging now so we’ve made some progress! Only about 17 more to go…
