Thanksgiving @ The Bungalow

Thanksgiving-DiCorcia-Interior-Design-NY-NJI hope you all had a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving! Turkey Day dinner at The Bungalow was somewhat of a whirlwind, I feel like I blinked and it was all over! Dinner went off without a hitch, I brined the turkey and cannot recommend the extra step enough (I used this recipe). Although I did flood the kitchen with raw turkey water twice – it was not a pretty scene! Luckily that took place in the morning, so everything was disinfected twice over before our guest’s arrival. Next year I will be using a bucket in place of the turkey brining bag!

As per my usual, I got so caught up having a good time I barely took any pictures – I really need to remember to do this at our upcoming holiday party! I did manage to snap a few pics of the table on my iPhone before our guests arrived. We usually have a decent size crowd, and this year the table was set for 12. In lieu of having a tablecloth custom-made to accommodate the 10 ft. table, I picked up some cheap burlap to achieve a seamless look.

I think a good time was had by all! How was your Thanksgiving?

  1. Your table is beautiful! We always brine our turkeys. The bags don’t work so well.
    I recommend the orange buckets from Home Depot- we have ours labeled for brining only!
