2013 Thanksgiving

I can honestly say that this past Thanksgiving has been my most favorite yet. I’ve never felt happier or more blessed to have all of our family in one place.

For our tablescape I decided to go with gold and cranberry colors, pinecones, baby’s breath and burlap!

The smartest choice I made when setting our table was the upscale disposable china plates! Not only are these plates and silverware super durable, but after dinner we all just tossed our plates in the trash eliminating lots of extra clean up!

Even the pups had a great time!

Couldn’t have celebrated Baby M’s gender reveal in a more perfect way!

And in typical Thanksgiving fashion we ate…and ate…and ate lots of yummy food!

This Thanksgiving definitely goes down as my favorite yet!

    So smart to use disposable china … we used all disposables during our gender reveal and it saved so much clean-up time in the kitchen afterwards!
