Decor: Friendsgiving

Friendsgiving is the Thanksgiving dinner that we hold each year for friends.  Up North here,  Thanksgiving was in early October (we have an earlier harvest than the US) and that meal was for family.  Friendsgiving dinner lets us celebrate the harvest season after all the hubbub of the traditional holiday has died down.  And,  of course,  it means setting another table. 20151017_153233 20151017_153257

I always feel the urge to go bigger and do more for the centrepiece,  and then I remember how each year we struggle to fit all the food on the table,  and I calm down and simplify.

Some small white pumpkins, beautiful cut glass candlesticks and some chestnuts - and as you can see,  the foliage in these parts is still not playing along with the idea of fall.  You work with what you have.  Happy Friendsgiving!
