Right before the rush and rejoicing of Christmas is a holiday known as Thanksgiving. We’re sure you’ve heard of it. Thanksgiving is a time for food, family, fun, and festive Fall decorations. Families gather around the table to eat turkey and the carbo-licious side dishes, and then pile their plates with pumpkin pies. Once the meal is done, they fall asleep on the couch – victims of that pesky post-Thanksgiving meal fatigue. After they’ve napped, they pull on their caps and gloves, gather their lists together and make their way to the store wide wrestling match, also known as, Black Friday (only it’s really on Thursday night).
With all of that said, can you imagine having a Thanksgiving meal without the table? The first Thanksgiving meal took place at a table, or even a few tables, but those were probably crudely made using whichever wood was easiest for the Pilgrims to use (they weren’t particularly used to the environment of the wild Americas).
Tables come in many different shapes, sizes, and levels of quality. Does your table provide everything you need for a fantastic Thanksgiving meal? Sure, there may be enough spaces, but does your table offer something more than just a place to sit and eat? Does your table double as a conversation piece?
This table is crafted from salvaged wood and painted white in order to provide the perfect foundation for table decorations. Imagine setting the table with bright reds, oranges, and deep browns – place mats, plates, napkins, and centerpieces made of fallen leaves and cranberries surrounding tall, thick white candles.
Even before your guests sit down to eat and be filled by your Thanksgiving feast, they will see and be amazed by your table.
We at Olde Good Things are excited about spending time around the table with our families. We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving filled with lots of great food and grateful hearts.
