Another memorable Thanksgiving celebration with loved ones! The past few years we have celebrated Thanksgiving at the Dacha. This year our Thanksgiving was at home instead. We celebrated with Papa Dan's family. His parents, his sisters Dana and Kerry and Dana's husband Steve joined us. A party of 8.
This year I wanted a photo of the turkey taking center stage on the table before it was whisked away to be carved for the buffet table. So, I placed the turkey platter at the center to reserve its space as I layered the table.
Voila! Papa Dan's 16 lbs turkey turned out beautifully. I embellished it with fresh sage,rosemary, slices of lemon, slices of oranges and grapes. The fabulous enameled pagoda flatware was designed by the talented Tina of the Enchanted Home.
Lemon leaves,key limes and miniature pears adorn the ming vases and candlesticks.
