that's entertainment pt 2

well, I hope you all had a lovely thanksgiving weekend, I certainly did!  there was lots good food, lots of wine, and even family at Chez Craftnik, and it all went off without a hitch!  (well, except for the part where I burnt the meringue...but let's forget about that...)  there was even a...tablescape!!  woo hoo!


while it doesn't rival the ones I posted last time, it fit my table nicely and we even had room for food!  here's what I used:  my prized Jonathan Adler bird bowl (thrifted for $20!), which while not technically a turkey, stood in as the turkey's more stylish cousin.  whipped up the white burlap runner out of some fabric I had in my stash....

my thrift store plates and some new napkins I picked up on clearance at CB2...

gold votives from Crate & Barrel and river rocks from CB2...

autumn leaves collected on the streets of Noho...

and spider and china mums (that match my plates!)

all in all it was a beautiful setting for a lovely evening, and I felt like a rock star for going the extra step and putting a little effort into entertaining.  why next year, I might even tie some pine cones to the chairs.  :)
