Can you tell we are hosting not only Thanksgiving for 9 but 5 house-guests the holiday weekend?
I'm in a rush to get baking, but before I tie on my apron- some fall decorations. Kim's theme this week was "dare to entertain". Now normally I'm not great at table tops, but this year more than ever the rush was on; we had the shop for food, plan the menu, finish the kitchen (more on that next week), etc. And in the move a box of fall decor (with my monogrammed funkin and crafted felt pumpkins) went missing. So very sad.
So the decorating happened last night. The good news was that my sister is here, so not only was it a lot of fun to have her join in, but she was a huge help. Thanks Toots.
On to the photos- all taken at night, sorry.
detail shot- I'll show how I made these holders later in the week
woven pumpkins- Target $2 spot earlier in the fall

The Thankful tree from last year's DIY party- it got "trimmed" in the move

In addition to my sister and John pitching in for the decorating, we were overseen by two cute, and festive pups (they are sporting matching turkey bandannas) .
I hope everyone has a wonderful, restful and tasty Thanksgiving!
