My dessert plates
Cute place card holders
My new crystal goblets
I love Thanksgiving. The food,the colors and the meaning of gathering around and sharing some time with family. It is very important to us, so much so, that we even celebrated it when we lived in France! It was difficult,but we were able to find all the ingredients there to make our feast.
Thought I'd share some of the elements that will be on my table. I can't wait to use my goblets this year. My husband and I bought two of them when we visited Scotland in 2004. At the time we could only afford two, and called it a gift to ourselves for our anniversary. I had hoped they would be easy to find once we got back to the U.S. so that we could slowly add to the count. I was mistaken though,and really had to hunt them down on the internet. I finally found them here. On our 25th wedding anniversary last June, my dad and step mom gave us two more! The count now being up to 4, we decided that we would try and get two more before Thanksgiving,since there will be possibly 6 people total this year. We placed our order last week,and hopefully they will arrive soon. I love the weight of them and the pattern too.
Usually, I break out the bone china and set a more formal table for Thanksgiving,but this year it will be a bit more "elegant casual." The whole table will be reveled later.
I'm off now to start planning the menu :)
