 So, Where do you Put the Food?

After poking through lots and lots of Thanksgiving ideas on Etsy, I now realize that the key to being healthy this holiday is to have a table so covered in cutesy little pumpkins on the table that there is no room for food. You need an army of house elves to move the table foliage. Also, what is that headless turkey? or is the little knob supposed to be it's head? Why is thankgiving the only time we are allowed to reflect on the previous liveness of our food? In general, you don't want to hang out with cows while you eat a steak. Why on Thanksgiving do we want to remember how alive our food used to be? On that note...

Food Made into Turkeys

I would be snide, but truly, I love these. I don't really understand the first one, or pumpkins being the base in general, but you put a jaunty pilgrim hat on a fruit turkey, and you have basically won my heart. It doesn't get better than this guy.

Thank you Traditions

My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is writing what we are thankful for at my Nana's, and then everyone has to guess who said which. It is pretty fun, and with 35+ people this year, it will probably be a challenge. My Aunt Joanna and her family do a Thanksgiving paper chain with what they are thankful for. Last year, we stole that idea for our house, because I love it so much (sorry, Aunt Joanna! Hopefully you see it as an extension of your chain!). I also thought this tree idea was very cute, and you could do it as a kind of countdown to the holiday. I just thought it was pretty (and we could use the beloved prom tree!).

 Thanksgiving is great because attempts to make it more commercialized or even aestheticized eventually seem a little silly, but I don't mind some of the silliness.
