Now that Halloween is over, it is time to get my table ready for the Thanksgiving Season.
I love decorating for the season. Warm colors, adding layers to the table, warm lighting and a great meal to go with everything.
I like to set the table every Sunday for dinner. I like to make Sunday Dinner special. A time where we can eat a great meal, talk about the week ahead and just chill out. I don’t get as fancy as i would for the holidays. Tonight we are having Mississippi Pot Roast and Potatoes. So yummy and comforting. I will post below the recipe I found online that I love to make.
Thanksgiving was always one of our mother’s favorite holidays. She felt it was about friends and family and not gifts. There was always room at our families table for anyone that didn’t have somewhere to go. It was important to my mother that everyone felt they had a place to be.
I loved helping her get ready for the holiday. We would decorate the dining room table, and hang paper turkeys around the house. It was the late 70’s early 80’s. They were in. Really, they were totally in!
Fast forward to 2018 and paper turkeys may not be how we are decorating our houses. Below are some links to some of my favorite items to get your started setting up your home for the upcoming holidays.
