I suppose it was bound to happen one day. I would decide I had to host Thanksgiving!
But you see, I have a secret. I can't cook. At least not the kind of COOKING that you talented ladies can do. All those years ago I tried and made so many mistakes. The Pumpkin pie never did set, and who knew that they stuffed the turkey for you before you cooked it? (Who-knows-what in a bag? How gross!!)
The can of cranberry sauce wouldn't let the stuff slide out, so I had to spoon it out like jello...
The rolls were too brown, hard in fact.
But we ate.
And now I'm going to try it again.
I'll begin with a beautiful table...that's the trick right?? If it LOOKS pretty, it will TASTE WONDERFUL!
At least that's my story and stickin' to it!
SO...here's the beginning of the Thanksgiving Preparations.
A stack of dusty dishes, glasses, serving tray and my new tablecloth.
The dishes were a garage sale find that my husband brought me earlier this summer. Can you believe his wonderful taste? There are actually two different sets in these stacks, but the colors and patterns are so similar, they go very well together and are hardly noticeable.
These glasses were also a garage sale find, mine, and they are something I've never seen before. The etchings are of tulips and surround the glass. The shape is just gorgeous!
SO...with a lovely set of china, gorgeous glasses, and a pretty tablecloth, what could go wrong???
Blessings to you all!
