Happy Thanksgiving planning, friends! Are you ready for Thursday yet? Are you excited, or feeling a bit of a time crunch? Thanksgiving is always at my family’s house every year, so I think that keeps stress to a minimum for us. We tend to use the same recipes, and since it’s only close family and friends, there isn’t really a need to impress anyone! The new dish that I’m really excited to make this year is this ‘potato chip’ roast. I don’t think that needs too much explaining..

One thing I’m always in charge of is the table. Ours is always pretty casual and a bit rustic. I hope to use the setting above as inspiration for this year, and I love the way the flowers, white plates, and silver accents keep everything from feeling too heavy. I love oranges, reds and browns as much as the next person, but when the meal already incorporates these autumn colors, I think some contrast is a good thing. I really can’t get enough of that flower arrangement! What part of the holiday are you most looking forward to this year?
