I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving yesterday! We spent the evening at my mom's house where she cooked a delicious meal and everything looked so festive! The food was so good that when we got home I slipped into a food coma...hahaha! Here are some pics from the evening...warning, this is a picture heavy post!
Thanksgiving table set-up! I love autumn colours!
My turkey and other decorations I made! I made these about 5 years ago and we've used them every Thanksgiving since. Oh, hello picture of my dad in the corner...hehehe!
Adorable place mats and napkin set! My mom had to get my brother to buy these for her from Williams-Sonoma in the US. She saw them on the website and fell in love <3
Thanksgiving salt and pepper shakers! I love these! They're broken though :( My mom's cats smashed them when they were coming in through the kitchen window one night. She was so upset she cried when she found them the next morning :( My dad glued them back together though...and now we can't use them but they still look pretty!
My fiancé Jonathan and me at the dinner table...he's shoveling in the sweet potatoes!
Albi eyeing up the pumpkin cheesecake...hahaha!
Getting ready to EAT!
Albi had to get his own place at the table!
Jonathan and Albi
Just one of the recipe books used to make this feast!
And now some pictures of the food...
Corn bread muffins
A mixture of roasted sweet and regular potatoes
My favourite!! Baked pumpkin cheesecake and whipped cream...yum! I'm totally a desserts girl, I always leave room for dessert :) Which is your favourite Thanksgiving food? Or if you don't celebrate the holiday, do you prefer sweet or savoury food? I forgot to take a picture of the turkey...duh!! Oops...well anyway we never do a full turkey for Thanksgiving because we're the only ones in the family who celebrate so it's only ever a pretty small amount of people at dinner!
A couple of you asked why my family celebrates Thanksgiving if we live in Ireland, hahaha...well I was born in the US and lived there till I was seven, my parents met there and lived there for much longer than me. So as a family we've always celebrated Thanksgiving and just because we moved doesn't mean we stopped our family traditions :)
