Thanksgiving ... Around The Corner!

A. Liz Adventures
We have my middle sister and mom traveling in for Thanksgiving this year. Dad will be with his brothers down in ATL and Laura and her family will be with the in-laws. I'm hosting Thanksgiving for the first time ever. I mean, I've cooked T-giving turkey for just me and Ian before, but never for family members. So ... let's talk prep.

Here's my table:

This is the perfect easy and inexpensive Thanksgiving tablescape. It uses things you probably already have on hand and has some simple Thankgiving DIYs that you can do with your kids too.:

Here's my table:

I've got a long way to go, but I DO already own a faux white pumpkin and some antlers, and you better believe I'll be snipping some greenery from my backyard! Time to do some magic!

I went to World Market while the girls were napping yesterday and picked up a few items. This pressed apple and rhubarb juice was just over $2 on sale and will be so yummy splashed into some bubbly.

For a cheese platter, I picked up some Castelvetrano olives (my favorite), pickled okra, and salami. I'll grab a few cheeses from Trader Joes. I don't love the ones at World Market.

Wines were 20% off if you buy 4 or more (the fourth is in my fridge already!). All of these were in the $6-8 range so not expensive at ALL. All are from the New Zealand area ... my favorite type of white. 

And I also spotted this adorable laurel wreath turkey roaster, but a quick Amazon search on my phone, and you can get it HERE (same exact brand) for more than $5 less and with free shipping. Done. 

So now I just have to buy the turkey and sides, pick up some fresh flowers for the kitchen and guest room, and get Ian working on a dinner playlist!

What's your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
Also ... pumpkin or pecan!?
