GETTING READY FOR THE GATHERING

Some of you know that we host 30 family members in our home for Thanksgiving, so I’ve been doing a lot of preparin’ for the gatherin’, and I’m sharing some of my preparations on this post.

I love using these Fall platters as chargers/placemats.  Some of you may recall that I got them at an auction last year for $6.00 each.  When I told the auctioneer I wanted all six of them, everybody acted like I was crazy and wanted to know what I was going to do with six platters.  I hope they read my blog, because I know they will be so sorry they didn’t buy the platters.
