Thanksgiving Re-cap + Holiday Preview



Some instagram shots of our Thanksgiving with friends (follow me on Instagram @jessalynf):
– the menu
– the appetizers are about as “traditional” as we went this year. Turkey meatloaf, cranberry shortbread, and sugar&spice pecans made the perfect accompaniment to our champagne toasts.
– serve-yourself buffet-style platters
– the centerpiece is 3 mini parfait glasses (the middle one is upside down with cranberries inside). I wanted something simple but still fall-themed, and low enough to be able to talk over.
– here’s my plate!
– but where’s dessert? yeah we ate that up before I took a picture.

Are you rushing around today in the post-Thanksgiving madness? Since the holiday came earlier than usual this year, you’ve got a few extra shopping days before the winter holidays, I suppose. But while you’re resting in between sales, or if you find yourself yearning to give something homemade and handcrafted this year, I humbly encourage you to swing by my Etsy shop, Highlands Homestead.
