Our Thanksgiving

Glazed Pears. These were absoluty delish!!















Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I enjoy all of the holidays, some more than others. Every Thanksgiving, we have family and friends come over and join us for dinner and to give thanks. On this day our family gets together to cook different dishes.  Everyone has a special food or item to bring to our Thanksgiving feast.
We had so much fun planning what was going to be on the menu and how our table was going to look like. When planning our table decoration this year my mom and I decided to go a little different.  She had a tablecloth from when she had her own store; it had fruits with jewel tone colors. This is the color scheme we went for this year.
Our table had golden square plates, golden wine glasses, harvest napkins and walnut napkin rings. The napkin rings were hand made with glitter walnuts, acrylic purple and yellow leaves, with a pheasant feather.  The centerpiece had different types of squash and small pumpkins. When looking for printables, the ones we found that would match our style for the night were from The TomKat Studios. We used their menus and their food labels.
The dessert/coffee table had a golden frame with the banner placed inside saying “GIVE THANKS”.  I picked Give Thanks as the banner this year, because we have had many different obstacles to overcome this year. Some were wonderful and some were not so wonderful, but even though we get placed in difficult times we should Give Thanks for the love and support one has between family and friends. Which is why I chose to have Pen n' Paper Flowers "BE" print on our dessert table. By the way the golden frame and the coffee carafe were found at a thrift store. This is one of my moms and I favorite hobby.
On our dessert table we had moon cookies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, glazed pears, stuffed apples, and cupcake. The beverages served were coffee and hot tea.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have fun decorating in your upcoming holidays!
