My Thanksgiving Table

Happy lazy Sunday, friends!

I'm finally relaxing and watching the Cowboys game after setting the table for tomorrow's "Friendsgiving" at our house!

Welcome to my kitchen! {This is Kolby, your cute tour guide}
I absolutely love this time of year and I'm happy to have my first-ever dining room table to gather my friends around.

I love to use natural elements and stuff I just have around the house. I just put together this super simple tablescape and love the pops of red.  I picked some berries from our backyard and added them to upcycled vases. The embroidered table cloth, vintage napkins and burlap runners are from our wedding, and I topped off the hand-embroidered napkins with dried tallow berries.

Love our mismatched chairs we rescued from an old barn and recovered! 

I'll be cooking a marinated pork tenderloin (wrapped in bacon, of course!) and spinach roll ups. It's a potluck (my fave!) and I'm lucky to have friends who are fabulous cooks!

We started the tradition a few years ago and it's always one of those magical nights where friends come together to laugh and have heart-to-hearts by candlelight. Most of us in the college town I live in are far away from our families, so its wonderful to give thanks with the friends who have become our own crazy, dysfunctional family. Lucky for me, I'll get to have THREE Thanksgivings after this, too! So blessed.

Hope your Thanksgiving is full of love and laughter!
