Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Since we will be in town for the holiday this year, I’ve been preparing…I’ve ordered a turkey, looked through my recipes, baked a few pies, visited the market to stock up on ingredients, AND decorated our Thanksgiving table.

I love the way it looks…so simple and natural!  I started with a burlap tablecloth, which I covered with strips of brown kraft paper.  I placed one strip of it down the center of the table as a table runner.  Then I cut three smaller sections to be placed the opposite direction on the table, going from one side to the other.

Then, I used fresh greens from the florist as the base for the centerpiece.  I placed white pumpkins and white candles of various heights along the greenery.  I can’t wait to see how it looks when the candles are lit!

My white dishes are set on chalkboard placemats, along with sack flour towels tied with jute for use as napkins.

And my favorite part of the table is the writing on the side encouraging my family to list the things for which they are thankful.  I’m looking forward to seeing what they write…

Now that the table is ready, it’s time to get cooking…mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey, sweet potato casserole, and all the Thanksgiving fixings!

Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving filled with family time and some pumpkin pie!
