Giving Thanks on Thanks Giving

Thanksgiving Dinner-49

Now I know what you’re thinking, Thanks Giving? Isn’t that an American tradition? It sure is, and even though we have lots of lovely readers from America (hey you guys!) we still wanted to celebrate this tradition for ourselves. In fact, I’m pretty disappointed that more people in the UK don’t celebrate it! It’s such a beautiful and lovely idea to dedicate an entire day to things you are thankful for!

Me & Em decided we would kick off the traditions by cooking a Thanksgiving dinner for everyone, we had the Turkey, the cranberry sauce and the mash potato on our minds all day but first we had to style the table!

We decided to go with a brown, white and grey theme with a splash of mini orange pumpkins thrown in! Since we didn’t want to go all extravagant with the decorating either we thought we would use what we had around us, and living in the Forest Of Dean pretty much meant we were using leaves for a main part of the decor! We dried them out then scattered them all over the table, in people’s place settings and even hung them on the edges of the fairy lights to make it look like they were falling! Awh…I know, we’re cute. Ha!
