Pretty Place Settings

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope all the American readers did too! It is so fun for me to prepare this meal every year. My parents come in from TN and we just eat and laugh and spend great time together. I usually try to decorate the table differently every year. We always use china and I have 2 sets that were given to me. This year we used the white Mikasa with silver trim. I had a piece of sunflower fabric gifted to me recently and really didn't know what I would use it for-VOILA! The fresh flowers were given to my daughter for her 13th birthday and they really made a beautifully simple center piece. I do plan to post my sweet potato casserole and baked macaroni and cheese recipes this week. They are good all year long!! Putting the zip in my simplicity pattern today. Hope to have it completed this week. I did no sewing over the holiday-just spent a glorious 4 days with my family and friends!
