Thanksgiving is just around the corner now! I look forward to having my family over for Thanksgiving dinner and love to decorate the table every year. My husband built me this wood frame with some reclaimed wood I bought at ReStore and I used it to set little pumpkins and gourds all down the center with candles and stuffed it with moss and berry picks. I bought some pretty beige fabric to drape over the table and found a printable Thanksgiving napkin ring and used orange ribbon to tie around the napkins. For the buffet table, I have several ceramic pumpkins and lots of leaves and picks that I have collected over the years and scatter them on the kitchen island and use my Grandmother’s silver candelabras to remember family connections and memories. Over the years, I have taught my niece and nephew to cook and my nephew helps me do most of the turkey dinner and we keep it pretty traditional, just the way our family likes it.
