I expected a little bit of pushback, but apparently, my mom was happy to give up the responsibility, even though I told her I still needed them to take the reigns on the turkey. I’m not ready for that kind of responsibility.
Ever since, I’ve been a Pinteresting madwoman, getting inspired by all things decor. After all, the food is kind of a given. I’m a Thanksgiving menu traditionalist to my core, and if green bean casserole and cranberry jelly aren’t there, neither am I. Everyone has been responsible for the same dishes for years. The only thing that changes is the location. Plus, my Gran will be coming into town to stay with us for the week. Our first holiday house guest!
And for the past three months, I’ve been keeping a running list on my phone of all the things I’ve wanted to do to the house before this first big event. Yes, it’s bigger than a housewarming party and a baby shower combined, even though the guest list is smaller. We’re talking my favorite holiday, i.e. the most food-centric one.
Be on the lookout, because I’ll be putting the tablescape together a couple weeks in advance (what’s the point in putting so much effort into pretty decor if you only see it for a day?) and I’ll create another post with my finished product, and hopefully a photo recap of the big day, assuming we don’t eat everything and pass out before I get the chance. That tends to happen.
there's a first time for everything, and I share those firsts here every week. to chat one on one, follow me on Instagram @becs.lynk
