Thanksgiving 2016

November 28, 2016

What a Thanksgiving! It was filled with family, food, and full bellies! I soooo look forward to this meal every year because it’s always a delicious feast! Plus, it’s so nice to get together with family and just mingle and eat! We had everyone over at our house, my husband’s family and my family, so 12 adults and 3 kids made for a fabulous big Thanksgiving with lots of drinks, food, and cheers!

My sister Jillian and her husband Brian made the trek home to visit us for the holiday. They brought their cute little daughter Alexandra and she had SO much fun with her cousins Ivy and Leo! So hilarious seeing them all together. She is just three months younger than Leo so those two caused a lot of chaos around the house!

In my old age, I’m getting obsessed with decor and table scapes! I couldn’t wait to come up with a plan for the table and when I saw this blog inspiration, I had to do it! The eucalyptus leaves are a beautiful centerpiece on their own. And with the addition of the pumpkins and candles and my own little touch of the antlers, it turned out pretty fabulous I thought! The gold charger plates and gold lined napkins were so pretty and rounded out the table nicely.

And I finally have a bar cart! I’ve been wanting one so bad now that we have updated our dining room (see that post here). I was soo excited to decorate it and get some drinks flowing for the night! Plus, score when you find this big awesome art print tucked away in the downstairs closet! YES!

And of course, the kids table! :) SWOON! Leo lasted about 2 minutes, but Ivy and Alexandra sat there like good girls!


Sooo many desserts!


Gosh, so sad Thanksgiving is over! The food was delicious and leftovers are THE BEST. I love big family get-togethers and big feasts! Now onto Christmas! So anxious to finish decorating the home in so much red and green! Ho ho ho!

Hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
