We had a “practice dinner”, in preparation for our church’s annual Women’s Christmas Dinner (feeding two-hundred and fifty or so). It got me to thinking about the Thanksgiving table.
To help keep the dinner organized, I figured out where everyone was sitting ahead of time. I used a sharpie pen to write each person’s name on a colorful autumn leaf, which sat on their napkin, on top of each person’s plate. The table looked festive and everyone knew where to sit!
Below is a picture of the table, decorated with fresh-picked produce from our yard. We are blessed to have pomegranates, persimmons, and avocados this time of year, which make a colorful arrangement. Some kiwi vines also added greenery, although they need to be picked day-of, or they’ll get limp laying in the arrangement.
Below are links to some desktop wallpaper I created (in full-size picture form). I like to add a seasonal picture plus verse to my own computer background now and then, so I offer it as free wallpaper for you too, if you want it! A perfect verse for Thanksgiving- “”Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks. For we know it is made acceptable by the word of God and prayer.” 1 Timothy 4:4-5 (NLT)
