Thanksgiving Race

It was a race to host Thanksgiving this year.  


No time to prepare this year, I spent a late night scavenging what I could find to decorate the house for Thanksgiving.  An old newspaper announcement of Thanksgiving races…read more here…pumpkins from my last garden club meeting and magnolia leaves from the yard.  The paperwhites I had prepared for Christmas got called up early to decorate for Thanksgiving.

A few flowers from Bi-Lo (slim pickins') and I had materials for a centerpiece.  BUT, no oasis ugh….pebbles from a gravel path in the yard surprisingly held water and stems perfectly.

Centerpiece done and the table set.  Scenes from the day.  








Okay, who left the coke can on the windowsill?


The kids were invited to the big table this year.

And even had their own libations.



Cheers




It was fun...

…until it wasn't

Oh my goodness, all of the children are growing up so fast. I do miss my Hartsville visits. Your Thanksgiving setting was beautiful.

It was a first this year, just us for Thanksgiving. My youngest (mind you she is 14) said, we can burp and fart if we want to. Too bad I did not capture that on video.
Your table is gorgeous.
