My husband is Canadian, my children are half Canadian, and we live just 30 minutes from the Canadian border. I think it’s only right to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving! And what better way to prepare you for the upcoming holiday season than with my favorite recipes and tablescape?! I’ve created a full Holiday menu (because you could and should use these recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas) for you.
Step 1: Set the Table
I headed to Trader Joes with intentions of getting a bunch of eucalyptus leaves to create our tablescape but they were all out. I was disappointed at first but then realized if there were eucalyptus leaves I would have never of thought to buy these gorgeous Magnolia leaves. They are stunning, real, and give a little nod to our North Carolina “roots”.
These magnolia bouquets are what I like to call low budget high impact. If you live in the South you can likely run outside and grab these beauties right off the tree, but if not head to your local Trade Joes to pick up at least three boutiques and six white pumpkins. Lay them flat on the table and play with them a bit to create a full look around your pumpkins and food.
The green and brown really make my Herb Butter Turkey colors pop! Head here for the recipe.
I intentionally did a simple napkin twist for our place setting because Thanksgiving is all about being thankful. I am thankful that we are able to be together as a family and that I can simply throw together a meal and setting in less than 10 minutes. Let me know what you’re thankful for and tag me in your Holiday posts!
