The truth is, I have no idea what my Thanksgiving table will look like. At one point this week, I wasn’t sure that we would be gathering together at all. It’s been an emotionally exhausting and scary week. My dad wound up in the hospital on Monday. It’s all a long story, but he is doing much better. The most beautiful table I can think of right now would be with my entire family around it. That will not be the case this year, but I am so grateful that my dad has shown improvement. So that in itself is a beautiful thing. We will be gathering together at my house for dinner and also visiting dad making the best of the situation.
I was, however, inspired by a beautiful table while on a trip to Seattle and Vancouver celebrating 15 years with my guy last week. While we were there, we stumbled into a charming little shop. I snapped a couple of photos of a beautiful Thanksgiving table that inspired me.
I fell in love with that nest and the birch paper underneath. You may recognize the nest from my kids’ table pics. I had to bring one home with me of course. Once I got home, I realized I should have bought at least two more.
And it turns out the birch paper is a piece of wallpaper. I so had to have it!! The woman working was kind enough to clip a piece off for me to take home. I was more than ecstatic. Not kidding!! Every time we went somewhere, the hubs and I would joke, “Is the birch paper okay?” It became our little treasure from the trip.
I hope your Thanksgiving table is adorned with the most beautiful thing of all – the people you love.
