Thanksgiving at Kelly's


We have just gotten a few new laminated cotton prints in and this one from Amy Butler is just perfect for my dining room. The name of the fabric is Couture Floral. I love, love, love it so I had the Junies make one last tablecloth before taking off for a long holiday weekend!! My family and I really like our Modern June elasticized tablecloths because the stay put and are so easy to clean up. See all our new laminated cotton swatches on flickr.
I layered on one of my chalk cloth runners on top of the table this year. We normally use runners on the sideboard and do a buffet line, something like this! But this year, it was just the four of us so we could keep things simple.

We all wrote down what we were thankful for much like Laura's family does, check our her pretty blog, Finding Home! 

You might have noticed over the years that I'm a last minute, fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. Thanksgiving is always done last minute since we're right in the middle of the holiday rush. Once the table was set I realized that I didn't have a set of coordinating napkins. OOPS!

Check out my quick cheater napkins, they are just fat quarters. Yep, just a simple piece of fabric squared off with pinking shears. Once I cut them I folded them back up like they were, that way I didn't have to pull out the iron. You have to love using your stash for things like this. Once they are all washed up, I'll use my new serger sewing machine and finish them off quickly with a rolled hem, this way they won't fray over time and heavy use.

Grocery store bouquets are always good in a pinch, I was just lucky enough to get out and shop for groceries on Wednesday. Don't you just love my fun new tray? It that was hand lettered by a fellow Country Living Fair vendor. I'll be sure to look up her contact info and share it with you all soon.
How sweet are these gorgeous chocolate turkeys? OMG, they cost way too much but I couldn't resist getting one for each of my kids. Fresh Market knows how to get all my $$. I'm hoping that Maddie and Aidan are nice enough to share.
We love us some pie!! Learn how to make chalk cloth chalkboard at my other blog Oilcloth Addict!
I hope you and yours had as nice of a Thanksgiving as we did. I am so thankful for all the kindness and support you all give me and my team of Junies over the years. I am truly blessed!!
