Fall Entertaining

An intimate dinner party this weekend was an opportunity to test drive some Thanksgiving ideas. I always pull out my Spode Woodland this time of year, as the color and style reflect what’s happening outside our windows. I love that it is gracious without being stuffy. I also love pulling out my antler steak knives….my husband makes an amazing tenderloin!

For the flowers, I was drawn to the texture and colors of the kale, artichokes, orchids, berries and roses. I worked with a local florist to pull my choices together and have them delivered the day before the dinner. That way, I can have all the table elements out of the way before I focus on the cooking.img_0693 img_0704 img_0706 img_0699 img_0700 img_0703 img_0705I may not repeat this exactly for Thanksgiving….but I feel a little more prepared.

What are you planning for your Thanksgiving table?
