It was Thanksgiving yesterday here in the great white north. Next to Christmas, Thanksgiving is another favorite holiday here at home. In my case, I get excited celebrating Thanksgiving because it combines the three things I love doing the most : decorating the house, tablescaping and cooking for family and friends. Classic and rustic harvest were my theme for this year's tablescape.
Thrift shops, HomeSense and my backyard are my go to places to source out my decorations. As in the past, all of these things were purchased right after Thanksgiving last year at more than 60% off it original price. And of course, bringing nature in will always be part of my decoration style.
Table runner from HomeSense, table cloth napkin from Pier 1, harvest dinnerware set from Value Village (a local thrift shop) and the wheat stalks were from the neighbor's farm.
To add Thanksgiving theme to my cocktail tray, I just attached a magazine cover with fall theme at the back of the glass tray and voila ....
So many things to be thankful for : family, friends, good health, abundant harvest, happy cat, chickens and ducks, surpassed trials and challenges and material blessings just enough to live comfortably and be able to share to those who need them. With grateful hearts, we gather and give thanks!
