“Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”
Roasted Turkey. Mama’s cornbread dressing recipe. Butch’s rosemary mashed potatoes. Green beans seasoned with ham. Sweet potato casserole. Four- cheese mac & cheese. Cranberry sauce from the can for my Daddy. Homemade rolls. Carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and of course pecan pie! My mouth is watering just thinking of these dishes that will grace our table on Thanksgiving Day! There’s no place I would rather be than Home for Thanksgiving, where we cook and host each year. It’s a tradition handed down by my Mother. The most important element will gather around on November 22…our family! The food will be delicious and the laughter will be endless, but it is our prayer that our eyes will be taken higher and placed upon our Heavenly Father who lavishes His love and blessings upon us.
I am glad you stopped by today…you are in for a real treat! I am joining Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate and 20 other bloggers to bring you a tablescape blog hop. You don’t want to miss a single one!
I chose to do a very scaled down tablescape for Thanksgiving, which is most unusual for me. I wanted the classic elements to stand out and for the faces around our table to be the spotlight.
The salad plates are a new purchase this fall from Williams Sonoma. The dinnerware was inspired by a Dutch still-life painting. Ripe gourds, fruit and leaves play vibrant counterpoint to the bold black glaze, and each rim is hand painted in 14-karat gold alloy. The salad plates rest on white dinners plates with a gold band and gold chargers.
