Turkey Plates

I went shopping yesterday to take advantage of all the sales on fall decorations. I found eight round place mats to go with the turkey plates I bought at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago. The fall floral picks I bought at Jo Ann's. Underneath the plates are a few pieces of paper I will use to make place cards. We only have a small gathering for Thanksgiving but I like making place cards anyway.

The turkey plate deserves a little attention! I like that it has a bit of pink in it, not your usual fall color.


We always eat around 2:00. How nice it would be to eat later, when the sun would be setting and cast these nice shadows.


You might think that I am getting ready for Thanksgiving way too early. The fall sales are out there and before you know it they will be playing Christmas songs on the radio. I am always doing everything last minute. I will need every minute to get ready! I should probably set the table tomorrow! I think I will wait on ordering the turkey.
