Setting the Table

It is Thanksgiving week.
I have a lot to be thankful for.
My sweet Dear Bebe, my helpful hubby, my family, and my home.
And they're going to be here for Thanksgiving.

I've got lots of work to do.
This was the table last year.


Each year I pull out everything I've got and somehow I manage to lay out a different tablescape than the year before. It is the part that I enjoy the most.


Thank goodness my Dear Hubs doesn't mind all of my questions. Like "What do you think? Gold with green? The white with gold? My Great Grandmother's china with the pink in it and a vintage tablecloth? Or how about this china we bought at the auction?"


He helps me stay on track but the bottom line is... it doesn't really matter. What really matters is having everyone here on Thursday, spending time together.


A Happy Thanksgiving to you this week. I'm thankful for my blog friends, faithful readers, and customers. Blogging has been such a blessing, thank you!

Your table from last year looked beautiful and I'm sure this year will be equally so! I've been invited to my nieces's so I don't have to cook this year! Happy Thanksgiving, Jillian!
