Foodie Friday/ Thanksgiving Dinner


Foodie Friday Logo 2 Thanks to Michael@ Designs by Gollum, our hostess for this day to share great recipes and menus.

Thanksgiving Dinner

1 Gift for my niece, Ceseley.  Dinner is at her home.

1 Chocolate Dessert, for my Sister in law

1 pan of Mac and Cheese, for my niece

A drive to Frisco to Niece’s home.  Roy is working, so I will drive up for the day.

I know some of you have already started cooking and hope you are not working too hard.  I always felt cooking for Holidays was a labor of love, but sometimes it is nice just to take a few dishes and go to someone home.

I also offer you one more simple tablescape for Thanksgiving.

Since I will not be home for Thanksgiving, I really didn’t put all the extras on this one, just wanted you to see the Fitz and Floyd Turkey and the new table runner with arrangements  on each end, I put together.

I also wanted to share a new tablecloth I bought on sale for 22.00, original price 99.99.  I will get to use it next year.


There is one of these  beautiful pumpkins on each corner.





It is a dark olive green and there are pumpkins all the edge. It is lined with gold on the underside.




Happy Friday!

Hi Barbara! Oh, your runner and table is so beautiful! I love it. That turkey is wonderful and what a beautiful runner. You did well, my friend. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and hopefully you want have to cook much! :)
Be a sweetie,

Very nice. I love the festive designs and the table runner.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I love that new tablecloth! What a deal! I also think the runner and the leaves cascading off the side...beautiful.

Our Thanksgiving isn't looking too exciting this year. I think it will end up just the two of us-that has never happened. It certainly makes prep easy!

Everything is beautiful and what a bargain you got!

Mary said...

It looks gorgeous as does everything you do. Have a wonderful holiday.

Barbara, this looks SO wonderful! I love the fan folds on the napkins as they echo the turkey tail. That turkey is too cute, too! Love him!

Did you get my email about you know what??? Just wanted to be sure you got "her" address.

Love to you and have a great time with your family. We are supposed to go to NC, but if Mr. Magpie is still sick, we might be eating Piccadilly takeout. ;-)

Good morning Barbara...

Oh my goodness...that tablecloth is yummmmmy. What a steal! And, your table is beautiful...I can't believe this is a "simple" little table. I don't know that mine will be that fancy on the actual day! :-)

Have a wonderful day and terrific Thanksgiving as you share it with your family.
