Canadian Thanksgiving is in just over a week, and we are hosting dinner, as always.
This year we are only having my husbands family, last year we had both sides, back-to-back dinners.
Lets just say I was off the hook for Christmas!
I haven't even dug out the box of Thanksgiving linens and so on yet -
think I've been holding out hope for the return of summer..
don't think the orange raffia pumpkins are going to make the table this year :)
Here is some lovely inspiration, though - found over on Divine Distractions-
Sally loves fall, and she has kick-started my table plans with this image.
Isn't that wonderful?
Sometimes the harvest colours just seem tired..
and this is a fresh take - painted pumkins and gourds, and those darling owls.
More... with bits of blue, fading into flax tones, mauves and plums..
White with green, my favourite colour for the table - any food looks good served up on a green platter..
I like the craft paper and ribbon idea on the right - that may be just the thing for the kids table.
The girls and I always head into the woods before the guests arrive
and they make a centrepiece for their table with some flowers and their forest finds.
Simple and elegant from Martha.
The guys would like this - there is plenty of space left for the copious amounts of food..
Turnip people - would be a great activity before dinner for all the kids -
something tells me the boys wouldn't end up being smiley faces..
Two meetings today, and have to re-paint a navy wall in the living room where we did some repairs..
Hope to get pics up of that space soon!
have a lovely day!
til next time..
