~Happy Thanksgiving and Simple & Sweet Fridays #143~

We are so thankful for the many wonderful things in our lives.
One, is to let you know how much your friendship and
 support has meant to us over the last year.  
Thank you for always being there. 
 I decided to make a
 "Thankful Jar".
I'm going to have the family write down what they're
thankful for this year.
Then, after dinner we will share them with each other. 
I had all the materials I needed for the project.
I made a tag for the jar.
You know how much I love stamping.
I wrote out some cards,
"I'm thankful for"...

Tied some ribbon around the jar that I put the cards into.
A wonderful family activity for Thanksgiving!
In addition, I also stamped some napkins for the holiday.
Just a couple of simple things to make the holidays a little more fun!
Wishing you all a
 Happy Thanksgiving
 with family and friends!!

~Dinner Under the Stars and Simple & Sweet Fridays #142~

Stan and I have been planning our
 Thanksgiving Dinner with the kids.
We will all be together this year for the first time in 5 years.
The weather in San Diego is pretty nice now, 70 degrees today.
I thought a holiday feast under the stars would be wonderful!
We always love eating outdoors.
  The fallen leaves in the garden 
 reminds us of the holidays.
I added some hydrangeas from the garden. 
 Some of our pomegranates added for the centerpiece.
I love using my mother's vintage glasses with a silver tray.
I found some paisley napkins and
added our antique silverware.
I just bought these beautiful hammered mugs at Pier 1.
 Gold etched grape wine glasses set the mood, for a fun dinner.
Our neighbors had given us this beautiful scarf 
from Germany last year.
The colors were perfect with the centerpiece.
Holiday crackers to celebrate after dinner.
I love having lots of candles everywhere on the table.
Now that it gets darker earlier, I set the table to make sure I had everything I needed for the tablescape.

I picked some berries from our
 pepper tree to accent the table.
With the stars out and the lights turned on, 
it will make for a very memorable dinner.
Looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving together.


Now, lets see what you've been working on for the holidays!!
