Last week my mama and I headed out for a night of fall festivities at our local Williams Sonoma store. They were having an open house and called to let me know I could receive 10% off for attending, on top of my 10% off for registering with them. Count me in!
My mom and I spent the evening chowing down on tasty autumn goodies like pumpkin quick bread, cranberry turkey paninis and apple cider. Yum! (Too bad I didn’t think to take pics of this part…bad blogger!)
Besides purchasing some things I still needed from my registery, I also fell in love with this simple autumn gravy boat.
I just knew it would be the first of many traditions Matt and I will have as a couple around the holidays. Although this is probably one he isn’t quite as in to as me : )
I know this little tureen will be a fixture at our Thanksgiving table for years to come (yes, mom, I’ll bring it to your house this year : ) even though we don’t host Thanksgivings quite yet. I want it to be something I pass on to my children.
Since we aren’t hosting a holiday dinner I thought I would do a quick little Thanksgiving tablescape, just to give the gravy boat a proper test run.
Yep! Looks good with the dishes! : )
Do you have any traditions for Thanksgiving? I’ll need some ideas to begin with our own little fam. Please share!
PS- a bit of housekeeping. I love to respond to your sweet comments! My favorite way is via email, so I can simply reply back to you. However, if you don’t have your email address “visible” in your google account, all it says is “no-reply” and I can’t respond to you : ( I will do my best to answer in the comment section, but if you’d like to to turn on your email, just go in to edit your profile and check the little box that says “show my email.” I bet this would help a lot of bloggers answer your kind comments, which in my opinion is one of the best parts of blogging : ) Many thanks in advance!
