Thanksgiving Tablescape Menu and Dessert Bar

We had an awesome Thanksgiving a couple of years ago. Sadly my computer crashed shortly there after and I lost the photos, but I still wanted to share our menu and set-up ideas. We had a gourmet-style menu, with a dessert buffet and Hot Cider Bar. For more fun and delicious Thanksgiving ideas, check out […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you have a wonderful day planned with family and/or friends. Did you participate in the Gratitude Challenge with me?

Thanksgiving Table setting – Earthy and Green

I blogged about our 2010 Thanksgiving celebration last year, but not until I’m sure you had all moved on to Christmas, so I’m going to post it again. It was full of inexpensive DIY details. We were fortunate to get to spend Thanksgiving with much of my side of the family in Utah, this year. […]
