Giving Thanks at the Table

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Here in Canada, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Only two more weeks until Thanksgiving weekend. I love this time of year. When the leaves start to fall, the smell of home cooked meals is in the air, and you can finally wear your warm sweaters and cozy boots. I remember my childhood around this time of year: we would always have Thanksgiving dinner at my grandparent's house. The smell of turkey dinner in combination with the wood burning fireplace always hit me as we drove up the driveway. My grandmother's kitchen is small, but it somehow was always big enough to fit all the dishes and food. She always made the turkey, stuffing and veggies while we brought the mashed potatoes, soup and dessert. I loved the heat that both her oven and fireplace created, and that warm and cozy feeling inside of me as we all ate together. It was just wonderful memories year after year.

As I grew older, moved out and started making new memories with my in-laws, I now look forward to the days where I too can create these memories for my children. Again this year, Thanksgiving will be celebrated twice - once at each side of the family. Our house is not big enough to host a large dinner, and so I look forward to baking two apple pies and bringing two veggie plates. However, if I had a larger house to host Thanksgiving dinner, I would set my table like this...

Easter Weekend Recap

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. We had a family lunch on Easter Sunday at our house. We ended up setting up the table in the basement since we have limited room upstairs.

I was finally able to use some of the serve-ware, crystal and dinnerware that I received as wedding gifts! And a table isn't complete without some beautiful fresh flowers!

I found these cute plastic Easter eggies at Walmart and decided to buy them for a place setting.

I filled them with some yummy chocolate eggs.

Some real colourful eggs were served as well!

Some yummy homemade desserts were made and served! I forgot to take pictures of the lunch menu. But these are better to look at anyways :)

We even had a surprise visit by the Easter bunny himself!

Hope you all have a great day!

Easter Table Setting Color Palette

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I can't believe Easter is right around the corner! It has come so early this year. I am still running around trying to figure out what colour scheme I will be going with this year, since me and the hubs are hosting this year's Easter lunch. And since this will be our first year as a married couple hosting it, I want everything to be just right. I spent all day Sunday searching on Pinterest and Google for ideas on table settings and coordination. I have selected a few ideas from each colour scheme to see which one is best, and if you are also in a struggle with ideas I hope these will help! Enjoy!

Lavender

Green

Pink

Blue

Hope these colour palettes help with your Easter decorating!
