Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, it's the day before Thanksgiving; and before I get too busy in the kitchen, I wanted to share my Thanksgiving table with you. I'm trying something a little different this year.  Normally, I set a very formal table. However, some of our really good friends are coming for dinner tomorrow.  You know, the friends that make you laugh, from the time they arrive, until they leave for the evening.  Therefore, I wanted a more relaxed, informal vibe this year. So, I decided to take elements from all of the fall tablescapes that I have done this season: 









I want to wish all of you, and your families, a very Happy Thanksgiving!!  I count all of you, my blog friends, among my greatest blessings this year!  Enjoy your holiday!
