A very friendly Thanksgiving

Friday night, my lovely friend Laci, who happens to be one of the most talented hostesses I've ever known, decided to throw a friends Thanksgiving feast for our group.

It was such a special evening for many reasons, the biggest being just how thankful we are for each other and
that God has brought us all into each others lives over the past year.

Laci's Thanksgiving table was simple but very warm. She said it cost around $60 for decorations, starting from scratch! Not bad for things she can use year after year!

The table had neutral fabric as the table cloth then was diagonally covered with a layer of burlap. The center piece was made of garlands of fall leaves, candles, and pilgrim and Native American figurines!

She also personalized mason jars for each of us with our own hand print.

(Somehow, years ago, thanks to a silly friend and high schoolers I used to work with, the nickname datgurladrie was given to me, as you can see it has stuck around. ;) )

The feast was perfect and a great way to kick off the holiday season. If you've never done a friends thanksgiving, give it a try... You'll love it! And let me know how it goes!

Cheers to you and yours!
