My Kind of Holiday

Despite the fact that I am super itchy to put up my Christmas decorations, I am so excited that Thanksgiving is just around the corner!

Seriously – Thanksgiving is just the best. It’s all about hanging out with the family and eating, two of my very favorite things. ;) Plus I love that it reminds us to be grateful for all of our blessings. And we are SO blessed.

This year we’re traveling to AZ to do a fun combined day with my family and Doug’s so we get the best of both worlds, everyone celebrating together. I have been doing some pre-holiday browsing for some d√©cor, because I love to change up the decorations every year. And it seems like we’re always short on serving dishes. (is it just me??)

Of course I went to to find some goodies for the table.

I really like this combination of metallic silver and gold for the table – it can be used dual duty for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Plus those little deer with the gold antlers make my heart go pitter patter.

Since we are always short on platters I checked those out. I think that giant white one would be perfect for the turkey, plus just to have on hand for parties and other events. I love pieces that I can use for holidays and everyday too.

I also did some browsing around and found these cute glasses. These Shirley Temples show up so bright and fun in them and would be a great drink to serve with our meal! If you click on the photo you can see the recipe too – it looks easy and fast to make!

Do you have a favorite recipe you make every year? I’d love to hear what it is! We usually keep things pretty traditional – turkey, stuffing, potatoes, etc. Though I’d love to change things up this year with a new side dish. Do you have a favorite that isn’t green bean casserole? (nothing against the green beans – just looking for a little variety. :) )


  • I instantly wanted a set of those black and gold salt and pepper shakers for my table when I first saw them at Target last week. I think I’m going to get the owl ones. I’m in love with the silver cake plate they have out right now too.

    Great finds! We’re always short on serving dishes, too. And I love those platters! I love shopping Target for these types of items.
