15 Gorgeous Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas

I managed to completely avoid Canadian Thanksgiving this year with a week long trip to Cuba. No turkey but we had a lot of fish, burgers, rice and beans. And rum. Lots of rum and vino blanco. Best Thanksgiving ever!!

For those of you that still haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving and can’t pop down to Cuba to avoid the whole thing (I’m talking to you, America!) I thought I’d share some of the pretty Thanksgiving tablescapes that have been popping up in my Bloglovin (link) feed lately. So much inspiration! And, because I love you all madly, I’ve included links for easier shopping. If I can’t find an exact match for an item, I added something similar.

Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Southern Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Topping

 

Nothing says Thanksgiving or Christmas like our family’s favorite sweet potato casserole. It is sooooo yummy and with a praline topping it should almost be classified as desert.  This recipe made it’s way to Canada from Alabama years ago, and it’s been a staple at most of our holiday meals since then. This is a pretty popular recipe down South but not very common in Canada.  It’s always a hit a potluck parties and the recipe was actually pinned to the information wall at our office! (That was clearly before Pinterest even existed.)

It has a few steps but it’s totally worth it. Lately, I’ve been making the entire recipe ahead of time and refrigerating overnight. I just pop it in the oven 30 to 45 before dinner is served. FYI- I always double the topping. Because pecans and sugar and all that good stuff.

  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 3-4 tablespoons of soft butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup of milk or soy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • TOPPING
  • 1/3 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of softened butter
  • 1/2-1 cup of pecans, chopped or halves

  6. Cover with foil.

Be prepared to hand out the recipe. Because, hands down, the best way to eat a vegetable is when it’s under a praline coating. I heart you, hidden vegetables.
