Happy Thanksgiving 2011



Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating on Thursday!


Pictures but not too much verbiage today ~ lots to do in preparation . . .






I never go far from the traditional menu ~ because it only seems right to keep memories of past Thanksgivings alive, and comfort close at this time of year.





My wishes for you . . .





A casual table, with warm fall colors.

Little individual soup tureens ~





And detail of the dinner and salad plate rims.
















The big soup tureen aka The Great Pumpkin!

Have a wonderful celebration ~
and thank you for stopping by.

  13. Your table is gorgeous. I love all the elements. Makes me feel warm and welcome. Thanks to you I found BNOTP. from there I have found other outstanding blogs about food and tablescapes. You were one of the first ones who inspired me to finally start my own blog and I did last week and have now made four posts. Love blogging and am having a ball. Its a sharp learning curve for me as I am very computer challenged. Thanks for my friends and family's help I am now on my way. Thankyou for all your beautiful photos, recipes and tablescapes. You inspire me.

    One more thing...When I first found your blog you had all those gorgeous photos of your foods in your header and it blew me away. I LOVED your header. For my two cents worth I wish you would go back to that. It was part of the inspiration. Don't get me wrong your new header is nice..I just like the old one better.

  17. Such an amazing table setting. I have that soup tureen and individual pumpkins but will not use them this Thanksgiving. Your photos are just gorgeous. Makes me realize that I have so much to learn with my photo expertise.

    Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
