Thank you so much to everyone who sent us good wishes for a trouble free Thanksgiving Dinner. The only "issue" was we ran out of gravy for the ones who went up for seconds :). Over all a successful Thanksgiving Dinner!
If you remember from our first thanksgiving post I had purchased some fabric with big orange flowers on it ? I was planning on making large runners out of it, but since we only needed a 6 foot table instead of a 12 foot table I had more than enough fabric for a whole table cloth.
I added three mums in some white ikea vases, I was planning on using pumpkins as vases but it was going to be another $20 for pumpkins . . . so they got the chop :)
Some rented folding chairs and found some white dishes for a steal ($5 for 6 plates . . . SCORE!) and the first table was set.
We had some extra fabric enough for two small runners for our dining table!
Since they were side by side I thought a similar fabric on each table would make it so that they match without being . . . you know . . . matchy matchy!!
I had trouble deciding on a center piece . . . it was between a red mum with a burlap ribbon,
and a two-tiered stand with apples,
. . . the apples won!!
I did find a use for the mum . . . it was beautiful beside the pies :)
For the napkins we went with . . . chocolate brown!!!
So that was our thanksgiving . . . Lee didn't burn the house down with the Turkey Deep Fryer (p.s. deep fried turkey = YUM), and everyone ate until until we all looked pregnant!
I wanted to thank everyone who voted on napkin colors and everyone who sent me a stuffing recipe!!! You're all the Best!! Thank you!!!!
