Thanksgiving Dinner with family 2014

I love the special days and thanksgiving is a favorite. We have so much to be thankful for.
 The day before our dinner I heard this in a sermon:

I realized just how blessed we are!

Decorating the table is always a big part of the fun for me. Here are a couple of views of my table which was done very inexpensively.

I used 2 acorn squash and one spaghetti squash as containers for inexpensive
 flowers I purchased at my local grocery store and leaves from my yard

Place cards
The small woven pumpkins are ones I have used for many years in different ways. 
They are also shown in this post. I made the leaves on my computer, printed them and cut them out.

I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving!
