Thanksgiving came and went. Unfortunately, the food comas didn't pass as quickly, but, hey, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without being as stuffed as a turkey! My sister hosted Thanksgiving dinner this year and here is how the Pinterest inspired shindig went down:
Pumpkins are by far the best way to decorate and they look great too! Use for centerpieces, place flowers inside and use as a vase, scatter mini ones around the table....the possibilities are endless and with so many different shapes, sizes, colors, textures and varieties, you can have a lot of fun with these gourds!
Here were the mini ones scattered on the welcome table...with yummy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
Place a bowl of dip in a hollowed out pumpkin and check it how festive this veggie platter turned out!
You can have a lot of fun with the food....here is a festive meat and cheese platter. Peppercorns were used for the eyes and a pistachio shell for the beak.
I think the festive cheese ball was my favorite though! It was so whimsical! And was the cheese ever delicious!
I don't think there was enough dessert!
The DIY banner ended up doubling as a great backdrop for photos! Perry's festive thrift store find of a sweater was a great addition to his outfit!
Cheers everyone! That was a little glimpse into our Thanksgiving and hopefully gives you some inspiration for future dinner parties to come. Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgivings and those of you south of the border enjoy yours!
