The Silver Lining To My Thanksgiving Prep

Before taking to the kitchen, I have various prep-projects to attend to. (I'm hosting our families for Thanksgiving for the first time!) And since I tend to accessorize my home like my wardrobe, I have more than my fair share of sterling silver trinkets around the house that need polishing. Luckily, I ran across painless, rub-free and eco-friendly instructions for this task at the Simplified Bee, thank you Cristin!
I scored 8 of these pineapple place card holders and linen napkins at my favorite antique spot and can't wait to use them on our table. They are practically begging for their Charlotte Moss matching salt and pepper shakers!
So while I'm making a pretend shopping list, I'll add the outfit I'd love to play hostess in. This little number from Oscar is definitely calling my name.
What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

Have fun hosting your first Thanksgiving! I'll have to check out the link for the "painless eco-friendly silver polishing!

Your card holders are lovely and that skirt is fabulous.

My man is one of 10 children, so as you can imagine the extended family is huge...I'm still recovering from hosting Easter! lol

We will be spending the day at his parents!

Have fun and do let us know how it goes.

Thanksgiving blessings to you sweet friend!

Hi Pink to Green. I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and I really love it. Ironically, my Kiwi fiance and I moved to Auckland in July from I especially enjoy all NZ related posts. Thank you!

Can't believe it is already Thanksgiving...will miss having Turkey this year...but probably for the best as it was 90 in Sydney last weekend! Have some stuffing for me.
