Decorating for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is not a holiday that Australians get the pleasure of officially celebrating, but it's always been one that has really interested me. I absolutely adore the idea of having a special day that is set aside just to give thanks and be thankful for all we have. Traditionally, Thanksgiving was a holiday that was created to give thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year, so naturally that's where all the pumpkins and rustic décor come from. This year, I get the pleasure of being in Los Angeles for Thanksgiving - we fly off tomorrow and to say I'm excited would be a huge understatement! We've had this holiday planned since the start of the year, so (as you do for most holidays) I have been researching all things LA and Thanksgiving - from cocktails and dinners to décor and most importantly, how to set the table. So I thought, although we don't celebrate it down under, lets take a look at some table settings and thanksgiving décor for one the most meaningful holidays of the year...

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I'd love to know what's on your menu this year. I always love to get inspiration from what other people are getting up to in the kitchen. If you ARE looking at cooking up a storm for this year's holiday season, check out comparaboo to see a comparison of all the top rated products to create your perfect festive feast!
