Set the Table

I'm not what you would called "skilled" in the kitchen department, for example, my lovely mother is known to just put me in charge of ice, water and setting the table. Slowly over the years I have graduated to being in charge of making gravy as well. (Which by the way, is something that I take great pride in. And yes, I realize it's just gravy.) As much as I would want this post to be about me bragging over my gravy makin' skills, I thought it would be more fun for you to check out some of these awe-inspiring table settings. Maybe get some ideas for your big holiday table and dazzle your guests when they sit down for their delicious dinner.

  1. I love this post! If it makes you feel better...I've become the 'cranberry sauce' gal! :) Happy Turkey Day!

  2. Nicole- Thank you for the reminder! I too am in charge of that very important opening of the cranberry can and plopping it in a bowl. Wow, so much to do tomorrow. ;-) Happy early Thanksgiving!
