I've had my Thanksgiving tablescape planned out in my noggin since August. Don't laugh.
Have I mentioned I have a small obsession with fabulous table settings?
Well, I'm mentioning it now.
Might, might have something to do with eating off a card table for years and years.
Oh. Haven't heard that waaaa story? Well there's no time now.
Suffice it to say that the first 10 years of my married life consisted of ridiculous eating situations.
So I like to think of this pre-preeee-planned Thanksgiving tablescape as years of built up desire. Er something. Think:
White. & Gold.
Now, don't be a playa hater-- I know gold is totally, like, out. But I don't give a doodoo--
I thought/think white dishes with gold touches is the shizam.
Gold "Silver" ware, baby. What what?
I would like you to know that not many years ago I thought this "goldware" was tacky, and now I think it's da bomb. Oh, how the tables have turned.
This delicious set even has a salt and pepper shaker for each table setting. Hello? Totally ridiculously superfluous with a side of awesomesauce.
Got some fresh flowers and popped 'em in the vintage milk jugs my bestie Gina gave me. Thanks, Gina.
Totally copied the burlap/sharpie place mats pinterest idea:
Note to self: iron tablecloths.
I may or may not have squealed and golf clapped as I tried out my tablescape this morning.
That's the "adult" table. How come we can't say "adult" anymore without feeling like big pervs?
Anywho, the kids can't be left out. I've planned for them as well.
Made them little placemats eons ago.
And they can make their own little hat if they so choose.
(Ron John helped me decorate with clementines-- I thought they matched and let him carry on.)
The kids' "tablecloth" is paper, so they can just color away.
Annnnddd. . . I might regret that.
Off to cook massive quantities of various deliciousness. Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.
