Happy Thanksgiving and Roses

It is our Thanksgiving weekend and in between cleaning and preparing for guests I bought myself a boquet of roses.


I don't usually indulge, but today I popped by our local grocery store for a few forgotten ingredients and couldn't resist. They had beautiful Fall bouquets and potted mums, but I was drawn to the simplicity and beauty of these roses.


They started out in a galvanized sap pail in the dining room,


but soon moved to the kitchen. I think I like the simplicity of them better in the dining room. Remington was very curious.


(I really need to change the placement of our light and I should probably redo the finish on our farmhouse table to better match the buffet and china cabinet.)


I am really enjoying these roses as we prepare for 25+ family members for an early dinner tomorrow (my husband and sister are helping.) The menu includes turkey, spiral ham, meatballs, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries, turnip, caesar salad, rolls, corn, peas, and a veggie tray to start. Dessert includes pumpkin pie with whipped cream, apple pie with ice cream, and confetti squares. We are blessed to have our family, our home to welcome guests and food to share.


Wishing you all a great weekend, and to my Canadian readers and friends a happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Wow, 25!? That's a houseful!

    I just mentioned in a post that I've only had turnips once and didn't care for them, but would be willing to try them again. I had put them in a stew. How do you prepare them?

    The roses are SO pretty.

    Enjoy the holiday!

  7. You can't go wrong with white roses. They are always classy and elegant. I think it was a great idea to buy them for your special occasion. I like them in the sap bucket too. It makes them look more country.

    Funny, I treated myself yesterday at the grocery store too, with some gerbera daisies.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
