“They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” Acts 2:46
When I envision my people gathered around the table in a couple of weeks to toast, taste and give thanks, I can’t help but smile! Thanksgiving combines so many of my favorite things: family, friends, food and time to be grateful!
Gratitude truly changes everything!
On my list of reasons I am thankful: my parents are hosting! Haha! Don’t get me wrong, I love hosting events, but Thanksgiving can be a bit overwhelming, and being at my parents’ house just feels right!
Whether you are hosting, attending or just want to make your home a little more festive before you break out the Christmas décor, you are in the right place! I have teamed up with a group of talented blogger friends to share how we decorate for Thanksgiving! If you just came from Amber’s blog Follow the Yellow Brick Road Home and are here for the first time, welcome! We hope that you find ideas, inspiration and the motivation to make a memorable holiday! I have included links to all the blogs at the bottom of this post!
The color palette of this console table in my dining room was the starting point for my tablescape. I love the combo of muted orange, greens, brown and white. My Harvest sign from my sweet friend Beth at Cedars and Grace Co. serves as a pretty and festive focal point.
This tray is also a favorite of mine to decorate each season!
I saw these bread boards and was reminded of Acts 2:46 (above) and my love for carbs! No calorie counting on Thanksgiving, right? They are the perfect size to add to your place setting and functional for your guests.
I found a super easy roll recipe online and subbed whole wheat flour for the white flour…that was a mistake because these pumpkin rolls pretty much tasted like wheat flavored playdough. No thanks. BUT if you have a dough recipe you like, these were so easy!
Just take the ball of dough and cut slits using kitchen scissors. Bake and add a twisted pretzel stick to the center. Takes 2 extra minutes, and I guarantee it will make your guests smile!
I used my mini copper Moscow mule mugs to hold the butter! The place settings are layered with a woven charger, galvanized metal charger, white and muted green plates from the new Hearth and Hand line.
My dough bowl makes a festive centerpiece filled with pumpkins, lamb’s ear, mini Moscow mule mugs and cotton!
On the other end, this serving ware is so festive! The bronze handles are my favorite! These come in several colors and would be great if you are bringing a dish or need a hostess gift!
I count you among the reasons I am thankful this year! I started this blog at the end of November last year, and it has been such a fun experience to learn, grow, be creative and get to know so many of you! If you are here, my sincerest THANK YOU !
I hope that this Thanksgiving brings you time with family and friends, yummy food, and countless reasons to feel grateful!

I also found these smaller wood cutting boards as a less expensive alternative, especially if you need a lot of them!
