Here's a look at our Thanksgiving starting with the kiddie table. This year we featured paper foxes made by the boys and I (from a Paper Source kit) with pastel pumpkins and gourds piled high on our kid's table. Our kiddie table used to be non-existent, but thanks to Oliver & little Brooks we have some new inspiration. The paper table cloth is from Mari Mi (available at Target) and is a remnant piece I just never threw away--I love the sweet little polka dots. The gold utensils (West Elm) and gold leaves give the kiddie table a touch of sophistication, which is good because my sister sat there for most of the meal.
I initially created the centerpiece below for our main Thanksgivng table but I ended up using it on the dessert table.
Instead I went with the bright and fresh clippings from our camellia plant which just happened to be blooming. I can never predict when it will bloom, but when it does it is always a treat because it is usually long after summer has past. The camellia blooms were tucked amongst orange, yellow and green variegated gourds. I opted to go without a tablecloth and instead only used cloth green and white toile napkins.
Our Thanksgiving post wouldn't be complete without a picture of the beautiful and tasty turkey prepared by Chef Miles.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
