Do you remember on Monday I was talking about going to a wedding over the weekend? Well, I guess staying out on the rain for hour and a half (the bride wanted to have an outdoor reception) has contributed to me getting sick. The ah, my throat hurts, my nose is really stuffy, coughing, and just want to sleep, kind of sick.
Moving on. Thanksgiving is a new holiday to me. Well, at least it was new fifteen years ago when I came to America. In Bulgaria we do not have a Thanksgiving so it felt a little funny celebrating this new holiday just like Halloween. We have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner only with my husband’s side of the family. My family changes things around because no one from my family is a big turkey, cranberry sauce, green beans eater. We usually make traditional Bulgarian food both for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
For me the holidays are all about the food, the decorations and mostly spending it with family. Table decor helps set up the mood and easily provide color to any natural place setting. The great part part about Thanksgiving/fall is that you can use so many elements from nature: use a branch to hang pumpkins from it or you can hang paper leaves. You can use pumpkins, acorns, squash, corn and of course flowers to decorate the table.
Of course we cannot forget the place cards. They do not have to something extravagant. They do not have cost an arm and a leg. They can be simple and can cost you as little as free. All you need is paper, printed and a little creativity. Of course there are tons of free printables online.
