Don't hate me - but this year I am not feeling Thanksgiving. I want to skip right over it and head into the Christmas season! But alas, I am waiting until after Thanksgiving to put up the Christmas tree, hang up the stockings, and send out the holiday cards. It is taking ALL OF MY POWER.

I decided I needed to get in the spirit of Thanksgiving by doing my favorite thing: creating my Thanksgiving table. This year I wanted to push myself out of my element by using only things I owned (outside of fresh flowers) and mixing them in a new way instead of going out and buying all new things.

I used lots of wood, fall colors, and gold accents while keeping everything else neutral. I really wanted the fall colors to POP against an otherwise beige backdrop. I also love the addition of persimmons holding the name cards - though I've never actually tried them in a recipe. Anyone have a good persimmon recipe to share? Would love to try them!

We don't actually host Thanksgiving at our apartment, but we have had a few "Friendsgiving" celebrations over the years. I love planning for when we do have a space large enough to host our family, but I'm 100% content having intimate dinner parties until then, haha! Cheers to getting through Thanksgiving so I can FINALLY GET MY CHRISTMAS TREE UP!!! (Just kidding. Kind of)
