When I invited our family to come for Thanksgiving at our new place, I warned them that if I didn't find the right boxes, we may end up eating off of paper plates in our laps.
Thankfully we found everything needed to make the holiday meal feel a little more special than how we dine on Superbowl Sunday. And while I was quick to find our boxes of china after the move, I didn't even think about what would go on the center of the table until the day before Thanksgiving when I started setting everything up. Suddenly it looked bare, in need of a little something in the middle of the table.
...a little shopping at the grocery store flower department for a festive bouquet, and a little scrounging around our yard for pinecones. Soon we had a centerpiece.
Recognize the silver? We used it as wedding decorations. This pitcher is my favorite. It was once awarded to R. A. Hatfield for the Best Ten Ears of Corn at the Missouri State Fair. Thanks to ebay it's still treasured long after R. A. Hatfield's corn is gone.
