Thanksgiving to us is more than the delicious spread of the traditional feast. Oh yes we LOVE the turkey with stuffing, gravy, fresh mashed potatoes and everything else that accompanies this long awaited meal but as creatives, we also love the ambiance that surrounds the meal. The decor that sets the mood is even more delicious to us so when we received a blogger box from our friends at Martha Stewart Crafts, Smithfield, Traditional Medicinals and Rubbermaid that was filled with lots of fun and pretty things to help set the scene for a wonderful holiday meal, from start to finish, we were thrilled to give our Thanksgiving table a trial run!
We were able to add some flair to a standard linen table runner by stenciling a pretty gold turkey to each end. After laying down the Stenciled Table Runner down then set our table with our dinner wear on top of that.
Our mom always offers ham in addition to turkey because the men in our family love meat and more meat. Try your own leftover Smithfield ham with freshly grilled bacon paired with an egg over easy the next morning with leftovers and we promise it is a delicious combination. We paired it with a nice warm cup of Traditional Medicinals herbal tea that will really hit the spot after dinner with a piece of fresh pie while you’re relaxing and chatting with loved ones.
After dinner you will be able to store leftovers in the interlocking Rubbermaid containers. I’ve used the Easy Find Lid system for years because they’re easy to store, (the lids snap together as well as with the base while in storage and the containers nest inside each other,) so I’m never scrambling to find the right lid with the right base.
Plus they’re affordable so you can let guests leave with a reusable to-go containers!
We love these products because they’ve helped bring the beautiful harvest season to our holiday table and hopefully they’ll bring it to yours, too!
