I ❤️ Thanksgiving. It combines two of my favorite things: eating and drinking. Since I am not originally from the west coast and neither are a lot of my friends here, we tend not to see each other over the holidays. In order to remedy this, my lovely friend R chose to host Friendsgiving. If you don’t what this is, it is like Thanksgiving, but usually held amongst friends. It is a great way to get a group of people together for a little fun and laughter.
I made a centerpiece for the table.
I defiantly waited till the last minute to make the centerpiece and that was a mistake. I thought Michael’s would have a few fall florals left…WRONG! It was like a Christmas bomb went off in there. As I walked through the aisles I got more and more nervous about not finding anything. Why is it now the trend to have Christmas stuff out in October?!? In any event, I took a deep breath and knew it was a “make it work” moment. I ended up finding glittery leaves and fruit as well as some cranberries. A little creativity and some determination later and my centerpiece was looking good.
The evening went so well. R’s turkey was amazing as well as all of the other side dishes. I made an apple pie and yams with marshmallows. I have to say I am beginning to like cooking a lot more, especially when I can cook for others.
