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?
