Tablescape Thursday ~ Thanksgiving

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by the fab and fun Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch..go visit her for great ideas from others here in blogland.

I know I am late with Thanksgiving pictures, but wow..its been busy around here. It was just Hubby, myself and the kids this Thanksgiving..and it was nice. I did lots of prep work on Wednesday and no real time that dinner was going to be served on Thursday. I like my mother have a hard time cooking for anything less than an army (is that a southern thing). But I did pretty good, of course the Turkey was 23 pounds, but hey who doesn't like leftover turkey?

Isn't he purty? haha

This is my dear hubby carving our bird up..

This is Sammy..our pup, yes he is counter height and really wanted those legs or anything that dad dropped!

Mashed potatoes, fruit salad, sweet potatoes, dressing, greenbean cass. stuffed celery, olives and pickles..did I leave anything out..ohh yes, rolls , turkey and gravy. We also had pumpkin cheesecake, apple pie and pecan pie. And was still us four! LOL..

Remember the $75.00 Pottery Barn centerpiece? Well here is my PB inspired one. Cost me nothing as I had it all, just collected the pinecones and had Hubby cut some leaves from the magnolia tree.

Is the silverware wrong? Yup it is, but hey when the kids offer to say YES!!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are gearing up for some wonderful holidays!!
