Happy Thanksgiving to everyone here in the US.
I started cooking not long after 9AM. I know that’s not super early for most, but it is when you just went to bed at 4AM.
What was I doing up so late? I baked off two cakes and some donuts. Plus, I made another trip to Walmart. It never fails, I always forget something on Thanksgiving and end up running to Walmart to pick up a few things.
Thank you to all the Walmart workers, what would I do without you?
Rewind to last weekend…
I spent the entire day crafting at a scrapbooking crop with a friend. Instead of scrapbooking, I spent the day working on small craft projects.
One of the projects I worked on was painting Mason Jars. I painted the outside of the jars using red, orange and gold paint. It took a few layers of paint to cover the jars. For a smooth coating, I would suggest you use spray paint instead of a brush. But, if you don’t mind brush strokes or if you want a sponged look, a brush will work.
Fast forward back to today…
My daughters were in charge of setting the table. They placed the Mason Jars and lanterns down the middle of the burlap table runner. Then they added a tealight candles to each lantern and Mason Jar.
After our guests arrived we lit the tealights. The jars glowed and provided just the right amount of light! The colors were fantastic and gave the room a warm feeling. I love eating by candlelight. It’s so relaxing.
We dined on traditional Thanksgiving dishes by candlelight like turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy. Oh, and don’t forget the stuffing and pumpkin pie. Yum!
Well, it’s been a long day, a good day, but a very long day. It’s time to lounge on the couch and watch a movie with the hubby.
Thanks for stopping by!
I’m sharing this post with a few amazing linky parties.
