Happy Thanksgiving 2016

 It's finally here and I have very little to do today compared to the last week or so.  I have a second turkey to roast, cream to whip and stuffing to make.  Then it's time for dinner.
 I made my pumpkin pies yesterday.

 And made some cutouts out of extra pie crust.

 To decorate the tops.

 I roasted the first turkey and carved it so when the guests arrive, I will have a whole turkey on the buffet and a carved turkey ready for the guests to eat. 

 I made a cranberry cornmeal cake for dessert too.  Two pecan pies, 2 pumpkin pies, lindzer cookies, pumpkin raisin cookies, this cake and lots of whipped cream for everything.

 I set up a floral workplace on top of my washer and dryer.

And made these arrangements to place around in the dining room. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

FLOWERS! Even though it was just the two of us putting out our feast, I forgot the flowers!! I love fresh flowers sitting around. I'll have to remember next year.

Your dinner looks wonderful!!! I bet there were lots of full tummies! Have you posted the cranberry cornmeal cake? I'll have to look for it. It looks incredible and that would be a great combination of flavors.
