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!

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 ;).

  1. Hey Tara…I can see in my minds eye your extended family of 22 tucked in at your kitchen and dining room tables…what joy there will be! And like you, I have all sorts of notions of simplifying…but yeah, gets tossed out the window when time to decorate or entertain. Oh well…perfection is overrated.

    Happy day my friend.

  2. Tara,
    Your table decor is lovely! The light is so pretty as it hits your beautiful fall pumpkins! Ok, I hope you get the kitchen island that you are petitioning for!!! Thanks for joining the fun blog hop!

  3. It sounds like you are going to have a houseful and I am sure your guest will love this table! It is perfect for fall and Thanksgiving. I also say that I am keeping it simple and I never do.

  4. I am in love with your tablescape, Tara! Everything looks simply stunning. I love your sense of style too. It’s so close to what I love too. Everything is so wonderfully inspiring!

  5. Your table is a stunner!! I laughed out loud when I read your exchange with your husband! I have the same one with mine every year! it’s so fun to do this blog hop with you!
