I am so excited to be hosting Thanksgiving this year for the first time ever for my husband and I’s families!  We just moved into our new house last December, so this is the first November in our house.  We were so rushed to even get a Christmas tree up last year, so we are really looking forward to the holidays this year now that we are settled.

For our big Thanksgiving feast, I have been racking my brain (ok, I have been digging through Pinterest) to find the perfect decor, appetizers, place settings, etc. I haven’t quite decided what to do yet, but I wanted to share with you some of the great ideas I have come across.
