so the pre-thanksgiving celebration has been done before, sure. but never quite like this. melis, meech, and i put together quite the dinner party, and used our martha powers to do it. :) plywood on top of our dining room table made it possible to seat 13, and meech spraypainted pumpkins + pears to use as place settings. everyone contributed with delish thanksgiving dishes which made the night a HIT! i am thankful, truly, for all my wonderful friends.
