Fall Front Porch

Posted by on Nov 3, 2013 in fall, front door, front porch | 17 comments

My favorite time of year is officially here.

Halloween is over…

…and now we’re on to Thanksgiving!

I began hosting the Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago.

With 3 kiddos, and a traveling hubby,

I really wanted to be HOME for Thanksgiving.

 I’m so thankful that all of the families obliged…

…and I’m so thankful to be preparing my home for the big day. 🙂

And, I know that Zuzu would have a few requests if she could. 🙂

What will your family request?

I’d love to find a new “favorite” for our table!

Life to the full!

  6. Here’s an easy Thanksgiving recipe for Sweet potatoes.
    6 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
    1/2 cup water (no more)
    4 cups sugar
    1 stick butter
    Simmer covered until done.

  7. Your front porch looks so welcoming I’d love to come over and just sit. Your decorations are beautiful and ZuZu makes a great welcome wagon :-)Our grown kids insist on my Italian dressing to go along with the turkey and Date Nut Salad which was my dear mother-in-laws recipe.

    • Love the ironing board end table. Many great ideas, lovely.

  8. I look forward to Thanksgiving all year too. It always seems like such a warm, kind comfortable holiday. I’ll be hosting this year also, which I prefer. Please, please can you share your strawberry pretzel salad recipe! Sounds very interesting.

  11. I have to say my favorite on your porch is Zuzu. She is so adorable, love her face. Does she shed alot? I’d still love her even if she does. Tommy sheds non stop I think. I get the proof every time I empty the vacuum, yuk.
    Love your porch, you always do such neat things, no matter what it is. Love it all. Had to bring all my stuff in again, going to get snow and we had rain last night. Happy week
