This Thanksgiving we hosted friends and family at my Mom’s. After the hustle and bustle of styling the tabletop and cooking it’s always lovely to look back at all the photos taken. This year we wanted to do a more natural and organic tabletop with Astier plates, a beautiful linen runner and stunning blooms I bought at the flower market.
Place cards were made with extra rosemary sprigs we had lying around the kitchen.
I hope all of you are enjoying a wonderful long weekend whether you traveled or stayed close to home. It’s always nice to have a few extra days off. Happy Sunday!

This year been a special one – Eric and I now call each other husband and wife, friends – old and new – inspired me to follow my dreams, family that supports me at every turn in the road and amazing Sacramento Street readers that share this space with me. I have so much to be thankful for this year.
I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful Thanksgiving – may it be filled with family, friends and lots of yummy treats. All of us have so much to be grateful for this year!
This cranberry sauce has been made by my grandmother, my mom, and now me. It’s simple but delicious. If there were one thing I could eat at Thanksgiving, it would be this cranberry sauce.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ginger
Two peeled and chopped pears
12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries
Dissolve the sugar, water, cinnamon, allspice, and ginger items over low heat—about 5 minutes, depending on the heat. Then add the two peeled and chopped pears. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add fresh cranberries and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat when the cranberries begin to pop.
Enjoy! I tend to eat all of it before we even sit down for Thanksgiving dinner.
