thanksgiving trimmings.

With all the anticipation of Thanksgiving this year I started to think about all the images I've seen in passing of lovely centerpieces adorning holiday tables. I love the look they give to the table. Be it formal, or casual I do love the look it gives a table on any day of the week - but especially during the holidays. That being said, I also think they tend to be a bit of a issue this time of year. I love these samples I found while looking through Pottery Barn's bounty.

so simple and lovely!

I could see this one working out well as a pair - at both ends of the table.

All that being said - here is my issue with centerpieces on the table during the big feast - if they are taking up all the room where on earth do you fit the ULTIMATE HOLIDAY CENTERPIECE? The BIRD!!!! (Nom, nom, nom!)
This is all I want to see in the center of my table
during the holidays (at least when it's time to grub).

I can't wait to decorate my dining room table for Christmas - and I'm thankful that I won't be making the holiday meals this year, or anytime soon! That way I don't have to choose between beautiful arrangements or delicious bird! I'm sure most people cut down the bird first and then bring it out on a platter, but honestly even after that has happened there are still about 20 different sides that have to be brought to the table (stuffing/dressing, casseroles, cranberry sauce, potatoes, sweet potatoes - yada, yada yada). Buffet seems to be the only logical way to enjoy beautiful table decor and tasty treats!!!

How ever you dress your table this season I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday filled with goodwill and cheer. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! ox

Pin It!

I also have yet to be responsible for making the holiday meals, so until then I will enjoy a nice, non-edible centerpiece on my table too!

Happy Thanksgiving!
