~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!!
