Pre-Thanksgiving Tablescape

Filler post. I have some reviews to write, but I get home from work and do NOT want to think

Forgive me.  As soon as Halloween was over, I cleared the dining table for the big 80 birthday.
Then last Sunday, I cleared the table for my Thanksgiving 2016 tablescape........

Oh yeah - we have the spirit, how about you?

We are not hosting Thanksgiving (Praise the Lord).  We are in line to bring fruit salad to Ray's sister's place.  They are expecting up to 25 people.  Holy turkey.......that's a lot of folks.  

Story to be continued in one week.   We just don't want the Cowboys to be turkeys - dang, they are on a roll.........

  1. Always good when you can go somewhere else for Thanksgiving.
    Your table looks nice. I think we have a stuffed turkey somewhere. Probably still in the closet...

  5. Your table looks so pretty. I love all those fall colors together. We are hosting here, but not until Saturday after Thanksgiving, and only for 12 people, so it shouldn't be too overwhelming. Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Your table looks so cheery. :)

    Nope, I haven't done any kind of decorating, and I don't have to do any cooking for Thanksgiving, either. For about the past decade, my only task on Thanksgiving is to play with the grandchildren. AKA feel-good therapy

    Happy Thanksgiving! (This is the only time of year it's perfectly okay to tell our friends, "Get stuffed!")

  7. We're hosting my stepson, stepdaughter & her husband again this year. But we do everything out of a box or jar out of convenience. My hubby cooks the turkey and prime rib too.

    1. It is all about the company and laughs. The food is a bonus and ease of prep is a bonus. Enjoy!

  9. First time in many years I won't be spending Thanksgiving with my brothers and sister and their families. This year, it's me, Mrs. Penwasser, and our daughter.
    Our son (whom I call Simba, because he left the Prideland a couple years ago to live in Virginia) is going to watch a football game in Cleveland.
    At least I'll be with the important people (except Simba, that is).
