This year, our Fall Cure is ending after Thanksgiving, but that may be a good thing. Instead of feeling a ton of pressure to finish up last week, you probably did a great deal and had two weekends left to bring it in for a landing on your own. For the fourth year in a row, we escaped with a (growing) group of friends to the west coast of Costa Rica and celebrated Thanksgiving far away from home. But that didn't mean we skimped on cooking or table decoration! Above and below are a few pics of the amazing meal that our group cooked, complete with cranberry and stuffing, as well as the dinner table for 26 that I set each year. I use the amazing leaves and flowers along with things we fly down: IKEA tea lights, a string of holiday lights and watercolor paper for painting place names....

Our Thanksgiving table last Thursday night in Costa Rica - a mix of local flora and ingredients we packed down from the Northeast.

Final setting up..

Guests start looking for their seat names...
