Autumn Splendor

There are so many things I like about Thanksgiving - the long hours in the kitchen,  the gourmet feast, the sweet family chatter, and the shared opportunity to express gratitude for the good things in our lives. For me it is also the official kickoff of the fall/winter social season. 

Fall decorating offers a welcome bridge between the colours of summer and the jewel tones of the holiday season. Transforming your dining table with the colours and textures of autumn is  easy and fun - just incorporate the elements of nature: wooden branches, roses with the colour of fallen leaves, pumpkins and pine cons. 

The tradition demands that the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving feast be a perfectly roasted turkey, surrounded by carrots, baked potatoes, and homemade dinner rolls. If you are hosting the Thanksgiving dinner and you are not sure what to cook, this is the one-stop resource for you. Delish shares the best-of-the best recipes that wowed the judges in Quick & Simple's Thanksgiving recipe contests. 

Here are some fabulous  event ideas to set your Thanksgiving mood.  Happy Entertaining!
