How We Celebrate: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love waking up early on a nippy morning to watch the parade, cooking all day in a cloud of thyme and sage, and tucking into a piece of pumpkin pie.

I love the clamor of multiple generations, friends old and new, crowding around a table to laugh and tell stories, to pause and give thanks.

Now that I am forming my own home and family, I am looking forward to establishing our own Thanksgiving traditions.

Here are 5 ideas I’ve found that are stoking my imagination:

1. Guest Autographed Tablecloth (via cupcakes and cashmere)

2. Pumpkin Baked French Toast – for the morning of? Or the next? (from Minimalist Baker)

3. Modern Thanksgiving Etiquette from bon appétit (via A Cup of Jo)

4. Changing One Dish (from Nora Ephron writing for Huffington Post)

5. Inviting A Stranger (from Apartment Therapy)

Bonus: Wouldn’t this word sneak game be fun to play while sitting around the table during dinner?!

How about you? What are your favorite Thanksgiving traditions?

Whatever you do, I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
