Well, I abandoned my whole plan to keep things simple this year and embraced the whole palette of fall just outside my farmhouse window for my Thanksgiving table. I am sharing this year’s fall tablescape for Thanksgiving along with a few of my blogging friends so be sure to see all the wonderfully creative Thanksgiving ideas they have below!
Fall Tablescape for Thanksgiving

Whoops, I did it again :). Every year like clockwork, I turn to Jason and say, “this year I am not going to go crazy for Thanksgiving.” He usually nods back and smiles. Ha, he knows me too well!
I always have good intentions to keep things simple but the closer I get to whatever holiday we are celebrating I go on Pinterest or talk to friends about their Thanksgiving plans and those simple ideas just blow out the window :).
However… the truth is that though I crave simplicity…I love to host, love to cook and love to decorate for the holidays.
Full disclosure, come Thanksgiving our farmhouse table will have many, many more place settings laid out.
Our table will have more few leaves and chairs added to it, the kitchen table will turn into the kids table and my kitchen counters will be completely covered with pots and pans, empty glasses of wine and cranberry sauce.
We will have 22 for Thanksgiving again this year.
Because I am one of six it is almost impossible to have a small family gathering. I love celebrating with my family and Jason’s. It makes Thanksgiving that much more special to all be together. But this year, one thing will be simpler.
The vegans in the family have decided to be pescetarian this year which means I only have to make one dish of mashed potatoes. Last year, we had 6…
SIX potato dishes!!! This year we will only have 4…
I hope :).
For those that might be wondering where all those potato dishes will go…, I am currently petitioning for a kitchen island to lay all the potato dishes on ;).
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!!
