I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family! I am not cooking this year, we are traveling to my husband's sister's home. I am bringing two salads, appetizers and rolls. I love the smell of turkey cooking in my home, so I will be making a turkey in the next couple of weeks.

Have a wonderful time! Sharon

Here's to a Happy Thanksgiving! My dining room is still a disaster, AND I'm hosting this year! But hopefully the living room will be done by Christmas.

I am hosting 14, but it is always casual at our house. Plus I just noticed one of my kitchen cabinets is coming apart(the one with all the glassware and bowls etc) and I have to figure out where to put all the stuff until I can get it fixed...eeeek.

Hope you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving.



I am really looking forward to the holiday, too. I have been so busy wrapping gifts for Christmas, I haven't done any T. decorating...I usually just have a centerpiece and that is all.
My turkey is thawing in the fridge, the pie crusts are made...I will straighten up our country dining room and sit places for 17 people....

I hope you a beautiful Thanksgiving Allie! Your harvest table is gorgeous that you did for your church! I'm hosting this year for our family - gee, I better get started! ;-)

Allie, unfortunately, I think Thanksgiving has become the "forgotten" holiday!! Seems like everyone goes right from Halloween to Christmas. . .skipping. . . Thanksgiving along the way. I felt guilty myself yesterday when I took down my Thanksgiving decor to put up the Christmas decorations. But we go away for Thanksgiving and when we come back, it's nice to have the decorating behind me.

I love that you have your dining table at a diagonal. I'm looking for ways to keep my little colonial from looking too boxy and boring. Could you show us a picture of the entire dining room? I would love to see the layout. Thanks!
