We’re not hosting Thanksgiving this year. In fact, we won’t even be in Michigan for Thanksgiving – we’ll be on an awesome East Coast Thanksgiving Extravaganza. But, because Kim is throwing a Dare to… Entertain party today, I set the table and pretended. So this is what our Thanksgiving table would look like… if we were having Thanksgiving at our house.
Can you believe this is the first time I’ve gotten out the china and crystal? It makes me really happy. I’m going to have to get it out more often.
Jason came home as I was setting the table and was all, “Are we having a party I don’t know about?“
I made this little place card holders using this idea from the November issue of Real Simple magazine. It’s basically a bunch of twigs tied together with twine. I slipped orange wooden berries into the bundle to continue with the twigs and berries theme. It took 3 minutes and adds bunches of fun.
So, there you have it! Our Thanksgiving table, if we were to have a Thanksgiving meal at our house. To be honest, I’m super-thankful that we’re not having Thanksgiving at our house.
I’m also thankful for time spent with friends and family on our East Coast Thanksgiving Extravaganza, and I’ll be back next week to share my adventures in the big apple, talk about time spent with our nieces and nephew, and the final tally of meals eaten at Chipotle – it’s a must-have event since there are no Chipotles where we live (Jason: 3, Jen: 1).
