Thanksgiving Tablescape

This year, we're hosting Thanksgiving at our house for 16 people. The girls and I have been busy bees today, preparing the tables and baking up a storm.

Two tables for 6 are set in the dining room and breakfast nook. Instead of place cards, I made Mayflower boats filled with M & M's.

Zinnia napkin rings in bright orange are perfect for this festive fall holiday. Seasonal gourds on a pewter platter make a simple, yet elegant centerpiece for this table.

A similar tablescape in the dining room welcomes Thanksgiving guests.

Alexia and Natalia designed the table for the littlest guests. Alexia made an activity book with word search, mad libs, and more. Children will love to doodle and draw on the craft paper covered table and the fringes add a special touch, too.



Tomorrow, I'll be using three different crock pots to leave the oven space free for the turkey and rolls. Stay tuned for a few fabulous crock pot recipes that are perfect for large gatherings.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Best wishes.
