Farmhouse Celebrations // A Thanksgiving Table Scape

THE FARMHOUSE

Our first Fall at the Farmhouse has been beautiful.  The skies are blue, the leaves are yellow (and red and orange), and the air is crisp.  This beautiful season has made me fall even deeper in love with our little slice of earth!

This year, we are celebrating Thanksgiving with my family in Arizona, and while I’m excited to enjoy some sunshine, to say I’m a little disappointed not to set our Thanksgiving table at the Farmhouse is a bit of an understatement.  So, I decided to host a little pre-Thanksgiving celebration of our own.  On a random Wednesday, I set the backyard table, rounded up my family, and made a meal.  We didn’t have turkey or pumpkin pie, but we did have plenty of local inspiration.  I covered the table with late harvest grapes and crsip apples from our property, plus a couple of my favorite Pendleton blankets.

We ended up eating homemade tacos and drinking beer while we enjoyed our Thanksgiving tablescape.  Even when we had to move our gathering indoors after the sun went down (goodness do the nights get cold around here) it could not have been a more lovely evening.   Our random Wednesday celebration was the perfect way to highlight the season and remind ourselves that we have much to be thankful for!

Now on to Arizona and a traditional Thanksgiving feast!

What are your plans for the holiday?  Any fun table decor you’re planning on?

  1. Wow is your place beautiful! I love the idea of eating outside with warm blankets on hand for chilly evenings. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. The Bucolic Plague just hit me hard. I’ll be thinking about your little slice of heaven all day. Just Stunning!

  3. Aww, I live in Seattle but my family is in AZ, tooooo! It’s nice to have a reason to get some sunshine halfway through these grey winters 🙂 I’m hosting a Friendsgiving this year and can’t wait to set my table – I might even do it this weekend and leave it up all week!

  4. I’m quite jealous of your little slice of the earth, to be honest, lol. I’m glad you got your Fall table!

    I’ll be heading to family in Maryland, where my sister and her husband will be hosting in their adorable little American Pie suburban house in Columbia. The house isn’t extremely Colonial from the outside (though it has certain elements here and there) they have done up the interior to match my brother-in-law’s Colonial tastes – which he has quickly converted my Midwestern sister to, lol. So the table there will be very traditional. Beautiful white tablecloths with this lovely red runner my sister found last year. A few fancy candlesticks, maybe a couple leaves … nothing much. Must leave room for ALL the food, lol. Which of course is what really makes the table for me – the beautiful decorations alongside a beautiful spread of antique dishes and our old favorites for the holidays.

    I’m happier right now just imagining it. I can’t wait to head up there Monday! 🙂
