Setting the {Thanksgiving} Table

This year, Zach and I are staying home for Thanksgiving and I’ll be making dinner for a few of us. I’ve got my menu all ready and most everything has been purchased with the exception of some veggies and the meat. It’s finally starting to get colder here (thank ya Jesus!) so it’ll be nice to wear clothes that look like it’s actually Thanksgiving here. And leggings. Always leggings. They’re stretchy and comfy and I don’t care if you think they can’t be worn as pants. As long as my top covers my bottom, I will be wearing them!

Along with Thanksgiving comes beautiful ways to set your table, whether keeping with the traditional colors or going a bit more modern with metallics. Here are a few of my favorites to give you some inspiration for your table…

Also, as someone who is fully in her “adult” years now, I think that fall break and Christmas break are wasted on the youths. The real people who need it are those of us who work 40+ hours a week and are cooking these holiday meals and prepping for out-of-town guests. If we could just get someone to pass legislation on this making it mandatory, that would be great.

God speed to everyone hosting Thanksgiving at their house this week.
