Currently Loving... Thanksgiving Tables

Over the weekend, my friend and I stopped in West Elm to check out some goodies for her new place. Believe it or not, it was the first time I had ever been inside a West Elm store -- I was in Heaven! As soon as we walked in, before us stood a gorgeous table staged for a Thanksgiving feast. The dishes, the colors, the styling -- all perfect. I wanted to take the entire table home with me. While I could kick myself for not snapping a few pics of the table settings, these images from their site will suffice:

WestElmThanksgiving

This Thanksgiving will be the first time that my husband and I will be away from the family. My brother-in-law will be in Chicago to visit, but we'll be without the rest of the fam. It will also be the first Thanksgiving dinner that I will be cooking, and I couldn't be more excited. It'll be a small feast for 4 people, but that's probably all I can handle for my first try. I might have to pick up some of those cute "gobble" plates with the little turkeys to accent the table. Have you ever cooked your own Thanksgiving or holiday feast?

I love Thanksgiving and West Elm. You should make your first Thanksgiving away special by making some new dishes. (And getting THOSE west elm dishes!)

Jen you are going to have a blast cooking!!!! We dont have family in Houston, so it's just us two, but I still do the entire meal because I just love cooking for Thanksgiving. Actually, I was in Chicago the October before my first Thanksgiving and I got my table settings from Crate and Barrel on the Millenium Mile (is that what it's called?) I can't wait to see your Thanksgiving, please take tons of pictures!
