For Thanksgiving this year my parents came up and spent a couple of weeks with us. My brother and sister-in-law came in from the city and we hosted with grilled turkey, Mama Stamberg’s cranberry relish, a few other delicious sides, bourbon pecan pie and a pumpkin tarte from Sullivan Hill Sweets.
I always love the table scape part of entertaining, so this year we decided to do it up and finally use our crystal and china (since it usually just sits there gathering dust). I had plans to create some centerpieces with grass plumes, laurel and dried hydrangea from our yard but the wet weather made everything soggy and unusable. So instead we opted for candlesticks, simple ribbon and black chalk tags from Target and pheasant feathers for each place setting. Here are some shots of the table.
Since we were all cleaned up and looking our best, we took advantage of the situation and had my sister-in-law Soyoung Oh take some additional photos of our family. I can’t wait to show them to you next week.
How was your Thanksgiving Holiday?
