Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

I confess… usually I have plenty of plans made by this time… but I don’t necessarily do well in the execution department unless I get all the details prepared a week in advance.  Let’s just say someone might have had a meltdown.

One thing I like to do is have my table planned out and set ahead of time.  For me, that is an important detail that gives me a lot of peace and joy.

This year I created an Oak Leaf  Thanksgiving Menu Frame for the buffet.

  3. Diane, Thanks so much for including me in the weekend wrap up! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. Diane,
    I took 30 minutes and explored every link you provided – a nice collection of idea and so fun. As always a great post.

  5. All these ideas look so gorgeous! What a great round up! I would love if you would share this at Celebrate It! blog party! It is all about celebrating our wonderful everyday lives!

  6. This looks like a round-up I can get lost in for a long time! I agree, planning the tablescape ahead of time is very useful…and very fun! I just did my centerpiece today (even though it’s just my immediate family of 5 this year, you gotta have a centerpiece right?!) and I’m so excited for the day! Enjoy!

  7. Thank you for sharing such a great round up with Share It One More Time. Cathy
