Thanksgiving 2012

I know this post comes waaaay late, but I thought it couldn't hurt to share it anyway :) Just to forewarn you this post is going to be pretty picture heavy, because well I'd rather let the pictures do all the talking! I got most of my inspiration from Pinterest (no big surprise there) so if you would like to see some of my inspiration pins, you are welcome to visit my fall board here.

I was so excited to host our very first Thanksgiving at our house this year, and I wanted to keep the decorations very simple and natural. I am not a huge fan of traditional Thanksgiving decor and colors so I put my own spin on it. I went with aqua pumpkins, white plates, tan linens, and natural tree branches for that pop of fall color. Hope you enjoy!
Each person had a cloth napkin, paper napkin, and personalized leaf place holder.

Mmmmm you cant forget the sweet tea.

 Sorry for the crazy eyes, Britna caught me off guard, but yay for homemade Pumpkin Cheesecake!
Britna did such an amazing job with all the arrangements around the house. She is also responsible for all of these beautiful photos!
Evan had the most important job of all, entertaining the little man. But they enjoyed themselves thoroughly on the wooden ramp Evan made that morning.
Overall I would say it was a very successful first Thanksgiving. Thanks to a wonderful family that helped me out and made it so much fun and memorable.
If the host is smiling at the end of the Thanksgiving, you know its been a good day. :)


  1. Your Thanksgiving was adorable, I wish my husband you accept to put the food on the server, but, he is so old fashioned and wants all the food at the same table where we are siting and it looks so messy.


  2. I wish my husband would* = only to correct

  3. There is something special about being able to pass the food around the table, but with as many guests as we had there was just no room! It was also nice that people could get up and get seconds whenever they wanted! Thanks for reading and leaving a comment :)
