Well this has been quite a confused week around here as far as holidays go!
I started the week off Monday announcing the reveal of my Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge room and I’m ending the week today showing you what my Thanksgiving table looks like as part of Bloggers Stylin’ Home Tours, Thanksgiving Table edition. Do you have virtual whiplash??
If you’re coming over from Fieldstone Hill, welcome! Darlene’s style never ceases to impress me.
I haven’t often hosted Thanksgiving since our family mostly lives some distance away and we wind up traveling. In fact, up until this year I have hosted exactly twice and I was VERY pregnant both times. This year, Scott and I are hosting his side of the family and I am both excited about it and VERY unpregnant :)
Now, let’s be honest with each other here – the real star of the Thanksgiving show isn’t the table setting, it’s the food! At least for me. I come from a long line of enthusiastic cooks and eaters and my grandmom, mom, and aunts have always outdone themselves at Thanksgiving. I am drooling a little just thinking about it. So my very first thought when I started to put the table together was, “I must leave room for the food!”
The very first thing I did, however, was put down a dusty blue table runner, softly colored placemats with muted blues and greens, white linen napkins, and our white and platinum china.
Now be sure to stop by Finding Home next to see what Laura has put together for the tour!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
