Christmas is such a wonderful time for traditions and I love that our family has so many of them! My favorite tradition is our annual Christmas dinner and this year I am so excited to share our new Spode Christmas Tree Gold Collection!
Thanksgiving is about following tradition; Friendsgiving is about making new ones.
I know I have a lot going on this holiday season. I am a bit crazed but I kind of love it! So when the idea of hosting our annual Friendsgiving came up, I jumped at the choice to host again this year. I mean who doesn’t want a dress rehearsal for the big Turkey Day Celebration?
Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday and I have always felt the more, the merrier. But what do you do when you are feeding a crowd? It’s not hard to put two turkeys in the oven, but the secret to setting a large table is to use your space wisely and mix and match your china.
I am partnering with Portmeirion to show you how you can mix and match china patterns to serve a large crowd for Thanksgiving.
So where do you start? First, you need to decide on how the food will be served. If you are tight on space then you will need to serve a buffet. Next, take an inventory of the china and everyday dishes you have. Since we are going to mix and match don’t even try to match everything. Also, decide if you want a salad plate. If not, that will help to keep it simple.
I have teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to share some fabulous DIY Halloween decorations.
One of my favorite things to do is set a table. I love mixing and matching and creating “art” on my table. A nicely set table can make a huge difference in a dining experience and I think how you set a table can affect how much your guests like your food! There are some common mistakes that are made when setting the table and today I am going to share what I think are the five most common mistakes setting a table.
