Our Thanksgiving Table is Set!

Wednesday, November 23, 2016


I went with the most practical table setting yet for this year -- the kids' butcher paper is our tablecloth with their colored pencils & chalk out so they can draw to their heart's content! I think I originally saw the idea on Pinterest and thought it couldn't be more perfect for this age. I set the table up yesterday so the kids could color during each meal and now, haha, there are all kinds of new decorations for the big day.


I made two simple garlands from the huge juniper trees in our backyard to add some fragrant greenery and span the length of the table. They'll move to our staircase after tomorrow for Christmas! I also love setting the table with these candlestick holders and gold silverware, which were all found at the antique market.


I am so thankful for all of you... for reading this blog and trying my recipes, for those of you who have become friends or written the kindest emails and for coming all over the world with our family.

Happy Thanksgiving from Zagreb!!

  4. We don't really celebrate Thanksgiving in South Africa, but I have always loved the idea of it! There truly is so much to be thankful for, especially this year... My Gorgeous Precious Georgia entered our lives in March and my amazing Husband has this amazing opportunity to work in another country! We are so excited for our new adventure as a family and to be reunited soon! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your beautiful family Amanda! Have a wonderful day :) XXXX
