holiday prep

Our holiday season is a little untraditional this year. We’re expecting just a few  friends for Thanksgiving Day dinner. Another group of friends are coming over the day after Thanksgiving for “Shucksgiving” (we placed an order with the Walrus and the Carpenter for 50 oysters!) A week later, my parents and aunt will come to town for a belated Thanksgiving/early Christmas visit. And then it’ll be just the three of us for Christmas Eve and Day.

I’ve been thinking about the table dressings for these meals. Here’s the plan!


We’ve ordered our entire Thanskgiving dinner. But I thought it would be fun for Mabel and I to go to the grocery store to get veggies to decorate our table.


I HAVE to figure out how to create a trough for the ice. Think I have an idea…


This one will be tricky as it requires great restraint! Can I edit myself down to just white with hits of red? We shall see. I’ll try to remember to take pictures of all!

Happy Thanksgiving! And happy kicking off the holiday season.
