Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Thanksgiving is the one time each year that we are able to reconnect with my husband's family.  It has become a tradition to go to Maryland and the cousins look so forward to seeing each other year after year.  I always love to see how much they have grown.

This picture was taken last Thanksgiving and you can imagine what it is like organizing 10 kids.  Herding a litter of puppies might be easier.  As a side note, I could squeeze those little baby toes.  They probably don't look like that now.

When I think of Thanksgiving I think of tables-capes that take on an organic element.  A little more rustic I guess you could say.  Here are a few of my favorites I have been collecting on Pinterest.





I will be taking off the next couple of days to spend time with family.  Best wishes for a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  12. Your family pictures are lovely! I, too, love seeing how the cousins grow more and more each year {and we never change!}.

    Love all these tablescapes. I think there should always be some sort of element by nature...flowers, branches, plants, etc. I know mine will!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, Rene!

    XO,

  13. Get your herding stick ready and have fun in Maryland! These tablescapes are exactly what I have in mind for Thanksgiving this year. I might even do the butcher paper and drawn on placemats for the adult table! Great images to draw inspiration from. Thanks!
