Our Homestead Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful. I hope yours is to! Turkey was yummy, 
Mom's recipe for Portuguese stuffing was almost reached, gets closer every year. 

I did get a great thumbs up from Mom, now 91! Always so encouraging.

Plaids were the table theme this year and my sister's glitter turkey!

Mom fills the wood nut bowl she gave me every year, a Doyle tradition.
The tablecloth I just bought at Christmas Tree Shop worked out great. 

Feathers and  beaded fruit hang from the light fixture by plaid ribbons, so easy to do for easy ambiance. Every loved it- a new  tradtion!

Hi Karen, I'm late getting around. I love plaid so your table scored high by me. Love the glittery turkey too! I am getting closer to my moms stuffing each year also. So happy to have you share with SYC.

I just found my bag of unopened nuts in my pantry....I couldn't find them when I wanted them at Christmas because of our family tradition...maybe next year!
Love your Thanksgiving table!
