Thanksgiving

October is my favorite month, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.


My other favorite holiday is, well all of them.


Though I am partial to Thanksgiving. I think it is because it is still technically fall so you get to incorporate all the things I love with it including pumpkins, leaves, sweater weather and bath and body works fall candles.


When Ryan and I had our marriage blessing last October the photos below are exactly what I envisioned for our intimate day. I wanted a huge table set up in the backyard and a make shift dance floor. I wanted a fire pit and china and crafted cocktails and a married #hastag (I liked #themermids (Meinke and Schmid combined) #takemetomeinketown #youplusmeequalsmeinke #meinketopia and #fallforthemeinkes


half out guest didn't use instagram so it didn't matter, but my point is I had a whole vision.

We were worried about weather and ultimately did not want to spend a ton on rentals


So, it was much more simplistic, inside and we used family members vintage party dishes, ultimately it was truly beautiful and perfect, but if I had the budget what you see below is what I would have done!


I also want to stress how much every year I want our Thanksgiving table to look this rad!
