"First things first...We are truly blessed to have the means to set a pretty table and invite our friends to join us for good food and fellowship. I am mindful that many are not so fortunate. My daughter has a passion for the work of the Food Bank. As a singer-songwriter, she has written and recorded a song that is the anthem for the world wide Crop Hunger Walk project. Her song, "Raise Your Voice" is featured in their video. I've included a link in the side margin of my blog. I hope that during this harvest season, it will encourage you to support projects in your community that contribute to the effort to overcome hunger.
I am almost three weeks out from my first knee replacement surgery, and I'm excited to be able to share a tablescape with you from a family Thanksmas dinner that we hosted last weekend. Our son's family will be with his in-laws for Thanksgiving this year, and also not here for Christmas. We wanted an opportunity for our sweet ones to be together for a holiday meal...We call it Happy Merry Thanksmas. Because my ability to move around was still quite limited by a walker, Sweet Mister arranged for most of the menu. Can you say, "Honey Glazed Ham and fixin's"? I was delighted to be able to assemble the table for our evening, and I'm very grateful to Cindy, the dear lady who stayed with me for the first two weeks, which allowed Sweet Mister to actually go back to the office. Cindy and I worked together to create the table design, and we had a great time. We set a table for 9 in the dining room...Come on in...
I flanked the plates with an inexpensive brown handled flatware from Horchow. My favorite napkin, the Pottery Barn flax hemstitched linen, seemed an obvious choice.
This week I'm joining:
