giving thanks

December 8, 2012

Okay, I know it's way too late for this, but I wanted to get this post in at least before the new year rolls around! Here's some highlights from our Thanksgiving spent with my amazing mommy who came down to help us host the holiday.

Aside from being the sous chef, I love coming up with a setting for the table. This year I was inspired by my co-worker Robin to use Honefoss mirrors with Fixa pads underneath as the centerpiece. The napkins are RE from Target (on clearance 4 for $2), the napkin rings are wedding gifts from Bed Bath and Beyond, and the candle holders are an assortment from CB2. I also sprinkled in some Glimma tea light holders.

Here's a close-up

Everyone knows I'm all about cheap, fresh flowers, so there were clusters of daisies all around courtesy of Kroger's manager's special.

15 daisies for 5 dollars... don't mind if I do!

Side note, can you believe that we had the flowers in our coffee table for 2 weeks prior to Thanksgiving? Yeah, me neither.

And of course my hubby was as handsome as ever. 

And for those of you who've yet to meet her, let me cordially introduce you to my mommy!
 Isn't she gorgeous? :)

This message greeted our guests as they walked into the kitchen! :)

 And this year, we remembered to get pictures of the spread.

The Menu - Potato salad, deviled eggs, sweet rolls...

collard greens, mac and cheese, cornbread dressing, spiral cut honey-glazed ham and turkey breast.

And this year my mommy brought her caddy for the dinnerware. Gotta keep it classy!

In short, my Thanksgiving was nothing short of amazing. I'm so thankful for a wonderful life with loving family and friends. Isn't God Good? How was your holiday?
