This year will be the first in awhile that I have not hosted Thanksgiving. Is it okay to say I am thankful for not hosting? Don’t get me wrong. I have usually enjoyed putting on a big celebration and having family and friends around the table. There is a lot of satisfaction to planning and pulling off an event like Thanksgiving.
But it’s also nice to have a year off.
Because I did not have to have my dining room in Thanksgiving mode I was able to bring in just a little Christmas. Just a little.
Just adding a few gold leafed magnolia leaves and my red wine goblets there is a touch of the season awaiting around the corner.
But I am keeping the wheat and the pumpkins a little bit longer. I worry that if I get the Christmas decor out too early I will be tired of it long before Christmas Day.
With a few colorful branches on my table, I haven’t jumped ahead too quickly.
Do you sneak a few Christmas decor items in before Thanksgiving? It kind of helps if you can get an early start on things, doesn’t it?
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
