Curtis Thanksgiving 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-27 at 10.26.44 AMI LIVE for Thanksgiving! For me, its all about the food, presentation and atmosphere. I feel truly blessed to be surrounded by wonderful friends and family (even those who weren’t here) and for the helping hands of everyone who made yesterday a beautiful and memorable day.Screen Shot 2015-11-27 at 10.20.54 AMThe tablescape was a “Woodland meets Copper” theme and it was a collaboration of decor efforts by my mom and I. I think it turned out beautifully and love that I was able to do it with my mom. For time sake and wanting to spend time with family, I’ll post what we had on the menu. If you’d like a recipe for a certain something, comment below and I’d be happy to get the link for you!

And now my gift to you this turkey carving season… If you want to get the most out of carving your turkey check out how my husband did it. Move the bird to a carving board, and slice of each entire breast, one side at a time. Slice the whole breast (going with the grain) and set onto a serving platter. Repeat on other side.
