He proudly carried them in this morning as his little friends, Oooed and Ahhhed over their chocolately snack! I think they'd look darling on the kids table at your Thanksgiving dinner! It's a great way to focus on the holiday on the historical aspect of its origins, as well.
Tonight I'm planning to start on my turkey-shaped cake for the buffet. While that's baking, I'm going to get out all of my glassware, silverware, dinnerware, platters, etc...and clean and polish everything. I bought some pretty crackled pearlescent amber glasses at Pier 1 Imports that I think will look lovely this year:
And some super cute large acorns to scatter on the table...
I always want to go through my table linens and make sure everything's ready to go. The turkey's been in the fridge for a few days thawing (I hope everyone remembered to take theirs out by now!) The dining room has been thoroughly cleaned. The groceries have been bought. Now it's just last minute touches!
I also have to finish working on my centerpiece. I'll add fresh flowers to it at the last moment, but I want to have everything properly arranged. I'm also hoping to have time to work on my placecards. Lots of last minute holiday prep!
How're your turkey day plans coming along? Are you all ready??
