thanksgiving at the hunts.

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

It was a success.  Bellies were full... of turkey and stuffing, mashed potatoes (both regular and sweet!), cranberry pear chutney, and rosemary rolls, wine, peanut butter mousse pie and a bumbleberry pie too... yummm.  And, as you've already seen, we were able to eat that deliciousness for days.  I really enjoyed hosting Thanksgiving, more than I thought I would.  Minus the little hiccup when, the night before, I realized my table cloth didn't fit the table when it was extended (as it had to be so everyone could sit comfortably!).  It was a typical form over function fight.  Me being like, "Steve, we can just make it work!" and Steve saying, "No one will be able to move their elbows cause they'll be sitting so close!"  Pinterest came to the rescue.  I saw this pin and one quick stop at our local farmer's market, the greens and tangerines were bought and I added the cranberries and swapped out the pillar candles for my silver candle sticks.  Shazam, thanks Pinterest.

How was your Thanksgiving?

  2. This is so freaking fancy with a touch of European. Love the slightly different water glasses and the candle chandelier. And Steve at the head of the table with Parker (or Parker at the head of the table with Steve...whatever).

  9. That looks delicious! We make a chutney, too, glad we're not alone it's so much better than canned cranberry sauce with the ripple can marks on it! LOL.

  14. Looks like a great time! Everything is so proper and pretty looking, unlike my Thanksgiving where mostly everthing was in plastic containers, and everything was scattered from the kitchen to the coffee table! At least it was something to laugh at ♥

  19. That table looks perfect to me. As in, I kinda want to recreate it.

    Is sister Kate doing some sort of jazz hand? I love her.

    Glad it was a happy day, B.

  21. @the rigolosos, i think she was pointing to quinn (who sadly, is out of the shot) to look at the camera. but i think jazz hand is way better.

  22. I want a candle chandelier but I have a fear of things falling on my head and an equally irrational fear of setting myself on fire. So I don't think it would work out.

    Everything looks beautiful. Especially all the people. How exhausting/wonderful holidays are with all those kids.
