Tables From Thanksgivings Past


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Every year, every day really, we have so much for which to be thankful.

This table was from a 'Friendsgiving' Rachel and Wes hosted before they were married.

This is one of my personal favorite tables.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day giving thanks for all the many blessings we have been given.  


  1. Lovely tables!

We still expect to have a good day, even though we will be missing folks. A blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  4. Beautiful! I am giving Thanks for so much and so many this year and every year! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
