Thanksgiving Table

When it comes to decoration and styling I like to have fun and make it a memorable moment.  I spend a lot of time thinking about what textures and colors would be fun to mix together to create a table spread that evokes a feeling that then enhances the meal.  I was inspired by this table and adapted it to my own taste.  Here are a few shots from our Thanksgiving dinner down here in New Orleans.  JM and I have a tradition of cooking the turkey - his brine is becoming something of a legend as it truly makes for a juicy and perfectly marinated bird.

I used different pages from my friend Alexa Pulitzer’s long note pads to create a unique name card and menu for everyone.

Grilled Brussels sprout salad with purple kale and Parmesan…and bacon.

Thanksgiving staple/tradition: Prosciutto wrapped, cheese-stuffed dates. Thanks Giada.

Persimmon and butternut squash salad.
