This year I am hosting Thanksgiving again, but adding more family members this time. My in-laws will be joining us along with my sister in law and her family. I have decided to keep the table simple and elegant with a few gold touches. My gold candlestick holders will be put to good use along with lots of small votives down the middle of the table. For a touch of green I plan to add either some pine garland or pick up some greenery from Trader Joes. One piece I can’t wait to be able to use is my grandmother’s punch bowl set. This is the perfect occasion to pull out this special piece as it will always remind me of holidays at my grandmother’s. We are still working on the menu, but it will consist of mostly traditional dishes with a few new desserts. I hope to share a few more Thanksgiving posts with you next week like what I’ll wear for the day.
