I hope you all had a wonderful & happy Thanksgiving! Sincerest apologies for dipping out all week last week, I got completely caught up in a few last minute client projects, along with preparing my own house/table/menu for Thanksgiving, and time just got away from me. As usual, Turkey Day at The Bungalow was a complete whirlwind – I feel like a blinked and it was all over! I decided to start dinner earlier this year, around 1:00, so everyone could be on their merry way before most other people had finished eating. However it didn’t actually work out that way, as we all ended up just eating and drinking longer – ha!
As per my usual, I got so caught up having a good time I barely took any pictures! I did manage to snap a few pics of the table on my iPhone before our guests arrived. Last year our table was set for 12, so 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. This year our table was quite a bit smaller, so I just trimmed down the burlap from last year to fit – I love the subtle texture it brings to the table, allowing the other elements to take center-stage! The flowers were supermarket bunches from Wegmans that I combined and arranged in driftwood hurricanes. And the place settings were a combination of old – my Great Grandmother’s china and vintage Lenox glasses; and new – Pier 1 chargers, Pier 1 napkins, Anthropologie hobnail glasses (similar here & here), Pier 1 napkin rings, Rifle Paper Co. place cards (similar), bamboo flatware, cutlery I picked up on our trip to Bordeaux (similar) and gold leaf plates (similar).
By Saturday we were pretty sick of turkey, so we headed out to one of our favorite Thai restaurants to devour this guy. And seeing as I don’t do Black Friday crowds (way too intimidating), here are a few of my favorite Cyber Monday sales:
