Thanksgiving 2012

Here is my table for Thanksgiving this year.  We do not have a traditional meal.  No one really cares for turkey except for me.  So I am making a ham, mash potatoes and green beans.  It will be simple and no need for all the dishes on the table. Besides, my dad will get overwhelmed will all the stuff on the table. 
I didn't get to set all the tables I wanted to set.  There was just not enough time.  I wanted set one with all pumpkins and one with all leaves.  So since I really wanted to do both, I combined them.  So since it is a fantasy table, it makes sense to use my Fall Fantasy Fiesta luncheon plates.  Kinda corny and dumb, I know. I will have my mom use the luncheon plate for her meal. She doesn't eat much and if I give to her on the big plate she will think it is to much.  I will also have to switch out her glass as she needs a smaller one she can hold. Oh and my dad will drink he soda out of the can.  I have a set of clear salt and pepper shakers that are just for him also.  He does not like my Fiesta ones.

 
 


Here is wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

I will be joining Cusine Kathleen for Let's Dish!!

  1. What a lovely table, Monica. Those mini pumpkin tureens are adorable. I am another that doesn't like turkey...but I do like everything else that goes with Thanksgiving dinner!

  5. I don't think I knew just how many people aren't fans of turkey until I started blogging! Wow! I have always enjoyed it so much that I buy a couple of extras to have around for dinners throughout the year! Ham is good, though. REALLY good! I think my Mom is doing both this year, so I'll be fat and happy at day's end. :-) It will be so weird having Thanksgiving dinner at their house! She always used to do the meal, but it has been "mine" for so many years that I have forgotten what it's like. It'll be a change of pace, for sure. I wish you and your family all the very, very best this Thanksgiving and always. Take care, Monica!

  7. Just love your table, & where would we be without the fantasy? Your family story made me chuckle, we all share similar little family quirks, right? Great dishes! Happy Thanksgiving! :-)

  8. I would be happy with just the stuffing and the mashed potatoes with gravy...and the creamed peas...and the cranapple crunch...and the Christmas Pretzel Salad....oh well, I might as well throw on a slice of turkey while I'm at it. I think your table is delightful, and I especially love the ways in which you honor your mother and father. They are blessed to have you as their daughter. Happy Thanksgiving! Cherry Kay
