    I really like the idea of ‘simple elegance’. Especially at Thanksgiving, it reminds us of the things to be remembered, appreciated and cherished (your family pieces on your table do this). The table itself is wonderful; the love, work, and caring that went into the refinishing (I’d never cover that up). Also, the idea of place cards to be added to the tree; what a ‘year -to-year’ keepsake. Love the whole idea; it’s so beautiful.

  4. That is such a gorgeous table Tara. The pine is so warm and rustic. I especially appreciate how you have all of your family’s heirloom pieces that you get to use every year and think of the previous generations. I really like the way you have decorated very simple with little touches here and there. The idea of the Thanking tree is excellent. In this way you can all share in tradition, which is really important for kids. Enjoy your Thanksgiving in this lovely room.

    So lovely! Seasonal but not busy. Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday as there is no emphasis on gifts – just the chance to cook for those you love and remember all the blessings in your life. I also use white dinnerware for the table but I’m going to go out and spray a few pine cones right now!

      Thank you so much for stopping by Kim! I agree that Thanksgiving is such a special holiday simply for the fact that there are no gifts exchanged and that it forces us to stop and just be thankful. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Take care, Tara
