Thanksgiving is Next Week!

Do you realize, peoples of America, that Thanksgiving is next week? This year Sean's parents are coming to eat turkey day with us. I have not planned the menu yet and I should probably get on that or else thank goodness Jack in the Box is open. Do they serve turkey sandwiches? It may be only four us around the Thanksgiving table but I like a nice table, with a centerpiece and name cards, in case anyone forgot theirs. I pulled together a few easy and simple Thanksgiving table centerpiece tables and will let you look at them as I start making the Thanksgiving menu, can anyone say Dominos?
p.s. Sean's parents, I am totally kidding about Jack in the Box and Dominos!

Ill be sharing my family's cranberry sauce, not of a can because homemade is always better!

I love the candles with the acorns. I have so many acorns in my yard and could make that. Thanks for the inspiration! I'm sure your table will be beautiful!

Michelle said...

Love these pictures! And yes I can't believe it's next week either.

Becca said...

Yum... excited about a link up tomorrow and lots of good inspiration! I think I might share my mulled cider recipe. It's bubbling away on the stove right now!

I never thought of wrapping candles with green beans or asparagus! Great idea. Haha, Jack in the Box and Dominos... I always feel bad for people I see eating fast food on Thanksgiving. Makes me want to take them some turkey!!

Leigh said...

Those are all so pretty! I can't wait to see what you decide to do!

Courtney M said...

These are beautiful! Makes me wish I was hosting thanksgiving this year!

Can't wait for the cranberry recipe tomorrow! I'm a huge fan of "REAL" cranberry sauce

I seriously love Thanksgiving. Sometimes I feel sad that it's overshadowed by Christmas. Any holiday where I can eat ALL day, is a winner for me!

Helene said...

love this fall decor, but I know it would never look like that in my house!

Lauren said...

Oh I love the candle wrapped in in the Indian corn! I'm so excited for Thanksgiving...it's definitely one of my favorite days of the year!

Joy said...

I'm a big believer that the food is the centerpiece! LOL With all the food we have... there is no room for any centerpieces. But I know anything you have on the table will be perfect and so will the day as long as Jack in the Box isn't your meal. ;)

Sarah and Stewart said...

I think the white candle with the corn cobbs is really cute!

I'm not ready. My parents are flying into town...this will be the first time my mother has flown in over 20 years. (man, grandkids will make parents do things out of their comfort zone). hopefully she'll be to distracted by the baby to not notice the chaos my house is in!

Valerie Price said...

I'm so excited for Thanksgiving...I think it's because of all the eating I get to do! :) Lovely table centerpieces!

Krista said...

Oh I love the second one! Best of luck on the menu! I lucked out and am not hosting, just need an appetizer or dip and I'm set :)

Rachel Nuckolls said...

I agree, that was my favorite!

Ashley said...

I've never actually cooked a Thanksgiving meal but I know it's gotta be tough. Good luck with everything!

I'm so excited about Thanksgiving!!

Lauren {at} Life.Love.Lauren said...

Wow good luck with thanksgiving!

Amanda said...

Good grief! Thanksgiving SNUCK up on me for reals. Maybe because it's still 70 degrees in Oklahoma? Yes, that might be it.

running4him said...

I cant believe Thanksgiving is almost here!!! ahhhhh help~ lol

Kira said...

We haven't had a chance to have Thanksgiving or Christmas at our house yet because our parents both always plan dinners. Even though you have to clean and do the bulk of the cooking, I bet it's nice to stay home!

Rachel said...

How exciting! Happy menu planning! Those center pieces are so pretty, I have always loved a formal dinner table with center pieces and all!

Simply LKJ said...

Can not believe it is already next week!! Love all these gorgeous inspiring photos! :)

Alex said...

Love those table settings; and please don't remind me how soon Thanksgiving is. I still need to bake like a million pies. Ugh.

Kristin said...

I love the idea of using fresh vegetables! Especially the artichoke.

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

That first pumpkin pic centerpiece is gorgeous! It wasn't until yesterday that I realized TG is next week. It snuck up on me this year!

Sarah said...

Thanks! And thanks for stopping by my blog! Love the Thanksgiving centerpieces. This gives me some ideas... :)

smk053078 said...

Thank the Lord my family is informal....all we care about is the food...LOL!!! I guess that is the small town in us!!! But, I am 100% positive your table setting is going to rock....loving that second picture! And Jack in the Box is fine by me 365 days of the year! ;)

Melanie said...

Happy Thanksgiving neighbour! (I'm Canadian, and our Thanksgiving is in October) But your photos have me wanting to celebrate it all over again! :D

Lexie Loo, Lily Boo, and Dylan Too! said...

I honestly can't believe Thanksgiving is a week away! Love those centerpieces. Unfortunately, it's going to be many many many years before I can host dinner!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is a week from today! Time is flying!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Haha, it does feel like a lot of pressure to host Thanksgiving, doesn't it??? (c: I remember freaking out...but judging from your cranberry relish, you have absolutely nothing to worry about! And it looks like the table is going to be lovely as well!!!

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

They all look pretty!! I like the candles with the dried oranges the best :)
