I love pumpkin (in case you couldn't tell!) and this Pumpkin Layer Cake recipe that I created is one of my favorites! Simple and oh, so yummy! Just right for Thanksgiving!!
The first bit of details I want to share with you about this wonderful Thanksgiving (or Harvest) table are the place settings. If you look closely the glassware, flatware and chargers are all matching which I think gives a cohesive look and feel to the table. But to mix it up a little we used old and new dinner plates – this gives the table a vintage allure. We began with new plates in a beautiful pheasant pattern that we rented (this is a great tip that folks often forget about when hosting small dinner parties – you can always rent china! It's not just for big weddings or galas.) Then, Pat & Sherry (the florists) brought some brown transferware – which is one of my all-time favorite patterns for Thanksgiving! Finally, Jen (the photographer) has a collection of antique china plates which we had fun sorting through to find plates to round out our mix and match settings!
