Thanksgiving Party Planning

Well, I posted my daughter's first tablescape last week so, I thought that I would show you where this talent came from.



This is our table from last Thanksgiving. I was especially proud of this set up because all of the elements came together nicely. My grandmother's china looks very regal next to the gold chargers and the burgundy table cloth. I love fresh flowers for a centerpiece. I designed this arrangement for less than $10 from our grocery store. My favorite part were the pumpkins. They were Pumpkin Gingerbread Bundt Cakes and they were very yummy and I thought they really completed the setting.

I am starting to party plan for the holidays and I needed some inspiration. You know...get the creative juices flowing. I think this may do the trick:-)
