Everything I used I already had. I scoured my fabric stash and used a yard of this outdoor/indoor fabric as the tablecloth. It provided the perfect neutral backdrop. I was particularly excited to use my Home Goods turkey plates that I purchased this past summer for about $3 each.
I also was happy to break out my pewter Match candlestick holders for the first time since we've moved into this house! I didn't spend anytime on the centerpiece. I would've loved to have spent more time, but there wasn't any. A quick run to TJs for some winterberries always saves the day! I plopped them in my vintage ironstone pitcher.
So, while this is a poor substitute for a full blow Thanksgiving spread, it was a fun and casual pre-Thanksgiving dinner with friends! Sometimes, those last minute get togethers are the best. Despite it not being the official Thanksgiving dinner, it made us realize how thankful we are.
I wish all of you a very Happy and safe Thanksgiving!
