Okay all you wonderful bloggy friends, here's the deal---I am hosting Thanksgiving this year, for the very first time in my life, and I need some serious help to get our home ready for Turkey day. I am working on my menu this weekend, and thankfully I have wonderful family members who are willing to help out with some of the dishes, so I'm not too worried about that - although feel free to pass along any tasty ideas, I can always use new recipes! I do need some ideas to spruce up our home, the dining table especially, to make it festive for the big day. Limitations: our Budget! I want to make a few cute things without breaking the bank, and I would love any suggestions as to what you think is a can't-do-without for Thanksgiving. The gathering won't be that big at all---just 9 people including two toddlers, but still, Thanksgiving is a major holiday, and I want it to be special. So, please help a first-timer out with any suggestions that will make my debut as Thanksgiving host a day to remember! Thanks, ladies!
