Thanksgiving Recap

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving...mine was nice and relaxing once all the cooking and table decorating was done! I definitely ate way too much, so of course the diet is starting today :)
Below are a couple of photos I took of my Thanksgiving table. Its a mix of rustic and of my favorite combos. As you saw last week, I spray painted pumpkins gold for place card holders, and I also used some extra pumpkins for the centerpiece. I combined my wood plates(used as chargers) with my grandmother's china, and I just loved how the china accented the gold pumpkins. Finally, I picked some bittersweet from the side of the road and used that in the center of the table, and the red berries brought out the color of the table runner's border just perfectly.


I'm always a little sad when a holiday ends, but at least we have Christmas to look forward to now! I've got my tree up and its mostly decorated...just needs a few finishing touches. Have you started decorating yet??


  1. Sidney I love it! The place card holders are really fantastic.

    My mom is all about some place mats... if I wanted to make her some burlap place mats for Christmas should I line them? (If sewing is involved then we'll have to move to Plan B.)
