Thanksgiving at My House.

This year I had the brilliant (haha) idea of hosting Thanksgiving at my house. I decided it was about time I cleaned, cooked, and basted my first turkey, and made some mashed potatoes...and let's just say I went overboard - not only with food, but of course with decorations. I just can't help it ;)

My sisters and I prepared a turkey (thanks to youtube), made homemade mac n' cheese, mashed potatoes, baked brie, onion dip, stuffing, cranberry, bacon-wrapped asparagus, mashed cauliflower, and s'morkies (s'more cookies) and brownies for dessert. We were stuffed after the appetizers and had leftovers for days...

As for decorations, I made menus and place cards out of individual bread loaves for each seat. I DIY-ed a wood slab chalkboard, made some flower arrangements in birch vases, and my favorite - a grapevine chandelier with baby's breath.

It was gorgeous, I just wish Sariah could've joined us...but she was off on her honeymoon - that lucky girl!

Take a look!
