Thanksgiving Fall Table | Decorating

In this post: A fall tablescape perfect for Thanksgiving….that was later featured in a magazine or two. 

Did you know that around here we start to decorate for Christmas on November 1st?!

The tree goes up, we decorate a little and we order pizza.

Would it surprise you a little less if I reminded you we live in Canada and Canadian Thanksgiving is in the middle of October?

Ah, yes. There you go. Now it makes a little more sense, doesn’t it?

By November 1st fall is practically over and Thanksgiving is finished for us.

Anyways, all that means is that next weekend we’re hosting family for Thanksgiving. Which I LOVE!

The love, the laughter, the food.

Thanksgiving next weekend also means that last week I practiced setting a rustic natural fall table.

Yes, practiced.

You see, when five kids start running around and 6 adults are milling about, it’s tough to be creative. BUT, if I set the table how I like it before-hand, I can repeat it on Thanksgiving.

And everything tastes better when the table looks pretty, don’t ya know!

Are you with me?

Wait, doesn’t EVERYONE practice setting the table all pretty and festive? Hmm.

Well you should. It’s a lot of fun!
