Thanksgiving-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

Before I put away the Thanksgiving décor, I’m sharing a few last snippets of  Thanksgiving 2013 at our house.

There won’t be a lot of commentary.  Remember, I’m cooking Thanksgiving dinner for 30 people.  My time is running short!

I’m trying to not have to buy more Hershey Kisses before Thanksgiving, but I have to admit, this cornucopia started out with a lot more Kisses in it.  I have a hard time resisting them.

I’ll be back Wednesday to share a more of my Thanksgiving tablescapes. I have previously shared the table for ten and the table for eight.  Then, the rush will be on to get the house decorated for Christmas.  I can’t believe how quickly it is going to be here.  Some of my Christmas décor may not make it out of the holiday closet this year.  Thank you for visiting me.  laurie

I’m sharing at Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch, Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life, The Scoop at Confessions of a Plate Addict, Open House Thursday at No Minimalist Here, and Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper.

I can just imagine how busy you are this week. I know everything will be special. I have the little salt turkey. They are cute! Cold and wet here so we are staying inside by a cozy fire. Wishing you a very happy holiday, Laurie! ~ Sarah

I bet you'll be cooking day & night getting ready for 30 guests! Wow, I feel overwhelmed just thinking about it!

Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours, Laurie.

Those salt and pepper turkeys are just the cutest things. Cooking for 30, wow. We have 4 for our feast and that keeps hubby and I busy.

I love the color of that pumpkin too. We always try to get one of them in addition to more colorful ones.

Love seeing more of your Thanksgiving touches. I know all of your Thanksgiving food will be wonderful! What a crowd to cook for!

Love your little pilgrim people!! Hope you have a wonderful holiday! I absolutely cannot imagine cooking for thirty! Makes me shudder to even think about it.

Hope you have some time to enjoy the day! (and i hope someone helps with clean up!!)
