my Thanksgiving table is all set !

 
Heirloom china, gold accents and orange tulips were the inspirations this year for my Thanksgiving table.  We have a small group gathering this year, but our hearts are full!  As our tummies will be with our traditional menu of 
Roast Turkey
Buttery Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potatoes with Mini Marshmallows
Sauteed Haricot Vert
Ginger Cranberry Sauce
Mushroom Ciabatta and Blueberry Stuffing
Sweet Corn Cake
Homemade Gravy
Fresh Organic Pumpkin Pie
And yes, I am making it all!  The stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie and cranberry sauce are already finished!  Now I can relax until tomorrow!

 




Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

thanksgiving tulips

  I was inspired by these beautiful orange tulips,
so I made a few arrangements for my
Thanksgiving table. 
I started with a few green and gold Moroccan tea glasses.
Then I went out to my garden and cut a few springs of fuzzy asparagus fern.  They’ve got a beautiful bright green color.  I wanted to offset the brightness of the fern and the tulips with a little gray from my English lavender. Then I simply stripped the lower leaves of the fern and lavender to put in my little glasses.
Voila!

Thanksgiving edition    

I love these helpful hostess guidelines 
from pinterest for setting the table
and organizing a "user friendly" buffet table. 
Pass this one along to your Thanksgiving turkey carver. 
It's so important to let your turkey rest before slicing
and these instructions make for a beautiful presentation !
