Our Thanksgving was VERY laid back this year (just our little family of four) but I still wanted to get out the china, crystal, and fancy flatware. Much like wearing a smart outfit makes me feel good, a beautifully set table gives me pleasure as well. I included my 9 yr old this year, showing him the proper position of the flatware, cloth napkin, and goblet relative to the plate. He liked it and did a great job!

This bottom picture shows the moment my 15 yr old figured out we could play the theme to Jaws by flicking the edge of the goblets with varying levels of liqud therein. (Only in this musical family!)
We had a fashionable, frugal table by using items we already had at home to decorate it. (and shopping at Aldi for the food!)
From our family to yours.......Happy Thanksgiving!!!
