I love Thanksgiving! There, I said it. It is absolutely my favorite holiday of the year. I think it is quite undercommercialized (is this a word, really?) and simple. Most people I know look forward to Thanksgiving because of Black Friday. This year was especially good. Our family gathered at our house and I think I've cooked enough holiday dinners that I didn't stress out too much, or maybe I'm just gettin' too old to worry about it!
I love to decorate for Fall/harvest/Thanksgiving. I have done it for years back when nobody else was doing it. Now, I see more and more decorations and people taking the time to dress their homes for the harvest season. Since I pull down all my harvest decorations the day after and start Christmas decorating, I thought that this year I would pull out a few Christmas to mix with the Thanksgiving and fill in some areas.
The centerpiece on the dining room table was a clearance silver tray with dollar store ornaments and a dollar store candle. Turned out nice, don't you think? Dollar stores are so great for cheap decorations but you have to be selective so that what you are getting doesn't look cheap!
