Don’t Stress over the Centerpiece!
Thanksgiving is here – this week! And if you’re like me, you’re thinking ahead and planning out the details!
It’s essential, in my mind, to be organized and ready for the day – so you can enjoy the day!
Last year we kept it simple, as we observed the holiday out of town. The year before that, we had a small gathering in our home.
This year, it will be very simple again.
Thinking ahead to the centerpiece …
Keep it Inexpensive
A few years ago I remember going to our friend’s home up north. On Thanksgiving morning, when all the preparation and work had been done, our two families went for a long walk.
The goal of the walk was for the kids to find items to put on the table, and make their own centerpiece!
I wish I had pictures of how they put it together with branches and pinecones, but it was priceless – and beautiful!
Make it Creative Fun
My daughter and I created an inexpensive centerpiece just this last weekend for our dinner party. Driving by some freshly-fallen leaves, we stopped the car and picked the leaves that we wanted to use.
Dry out the leaves
So don’t forget the easy sweet potatoes, here, and to keep a positive attitude, when you’re cooking your turkey, and the reason why we’re gathering in the first place.
Not only are we celebrating Thanksgiving, we’re celebrating Togetherness!
